Experiential Robotics Platform (XRP)
The Experiential Robotics Platform (XRP) is part of OpenSTEM—an initiative aimed at bringing inspiration and possibility to STEM education in ways that make it available to all. With a mission to assist other nations and underserved U.S. schools in their efforts to prepare innovators, scientists, and technology leaders by enhancing their K-12 STEM educational system, the XRP platform will allow more young people access to hands-on robotics education and STEM pipeline programs.
This groundbreaking platform will come equipped with hardware, digital content, and community: hardware in the form of affordable robot kits that provide the physical materials needed for a powerful hands-on learning experience; digital content in the form of online curricula, videos, instructions and training that is adapted to culture and educational infrastructure; and community in the form of an online professional learning discussion platform for support and guidance.
