Course Description

This course is a series of recorded sessions from the virtual conference ‘Teaching 21st Century Skills – Robotics with Team Storm’ (March 3rd 2021).


  • How might robotics change the future world of work?
  • What skills should we be encouraging young people to develop?
  • How can industry and education collaborate effectively?

This event brought education and industry together to explore the answers to these questions and more.

Through a programme of panel discussions, keynotes and practical activities, we looked at how we can engage young people in robotics and engineering, how these skills can be nurtured in-school and where and interest in robotics might take you.
