Educators have long known a basic truth about teaching: Lessons and content are more meaningful and stick with children much longer when they’re fun.
The best teachers do that naturally, combining fun activities that demonstrate deeper truths and concepts that kids don’t always immediately realize they’re learning. The YES House, with the help of Devon Energy Production Co., are making learning fun for some local students with robots that help teach all sorts of STEM-related lessons.
