Florida Prep Adds Robotics To Curriculum

In a recent press interview Dr Jing Bing Zhang, Research Director for global marketing intelligence company, IDC (www.IDC.com) made a startling prediction.

By 2020, average salaries in the robotics sector will increase by at least 60% – yet more than one-third of the available jobs in robotics will remain vacant due to shortages of skilled workers”.

Why will this be the case?

Testing a new robot at Florida Prep At Florida Prep we believe the move away from engineering and science begins in high school where many students shy away from these disciplines due to the perceived difficulty in understanding the content. Only by creating excitement around these subjects do students break through the stereotypes traditionally imagined for people in the engineering or science fields and open their minds to new possibilities.

Dr Xifan Liu PhD (Physics) Head of Academics at Florida Prep goes further, “Robotics is the next Industrial Revolution”, he says “and by offering innovative programs that include STEM technologies: science, technology, engineering, and math throughout our entire curriculum our students will be equipped to embrace the opportunities coming their way as part of the 21st century workforce.”
