Researchers at Yale University have developed a turtle robot with limbs that morph depending on the environment. The Amphibious Robotic Turtle, also known as “ART,” is inspired by water and land turtles and can change its legs into flippers before it goes into the water. One of the researchers tells us the robot can help monitor the environment or bring tools to divers working underwater.
We should always look for new and innovative methods beyond current solutions. Advancements like these are why the curriculum on our Collab-Lab addresses social-emotional development while bolstering positive child outcomes through STEM activities. Our Centers of Excellence use a 21st-century learning framework grounded in a comprehensive research-based curriculum that stresses STEM learning. Getting our future workforce to start thinking and solving environmental issues is imperative to improving our future.
As leaders in early childhood education for more than 35 years, Collaborative for Children’s goal is to ready young children for school and the 21st century with innovative programs focused on positive outcomes.
