Equip Your Students with the Job Skills of the Future

We’re passionate about preparing students for the future of work and equipping them with the necessary STEM skills to thrive. We’re sharing how our STEM products can help students acquire what the World Economic Forum identified as the top 10 skills of 2025.

Analytical thinking and innovation

One of the top 10 skills of 2025 from the World Economic Forum is predicted to be Analytical Thinking & Innovation. In Unit Two of our UKIT Beginner curriculum, we aim to build students’ analytical thinking by creating a robot to rehabilitate a red-shouldered hawk nestling abandoned by its mother. Students have to investigate the behavior of a parent bird and create an innovative solution to save the nestling.

Active learning and learning strategies

Active Learning, a 2025 Job Skill according to the World Economic Forum, encourages student participation and engagement during class time.  Our supportive teacher guides use a 5E lesson structure to encourage hands-on discovery and a reflective learning process. With compatible pieces and curriculum to support elementary through high school, the all-inclusive robotics UKITs provide a holistic learning experience as project complexity increases and students’ skills evolve and expand. 

Complex problem-solving

As technology evolves, advances, and becomes integral to our lives, the lines between physical, digital, and biological worlds become even further blurred.  To support the next generation of thinkers and innovators, we created the AI Foundations curriculum which introduces and reinforces multi-faceted problem solving by having students examine critical issues such as how artificial intelligence can impact society. By learning and building a solid understanding of AI, students gain complex problem-solving skills, a top 10 skill for the jobs of 2025 according to the World Economic Forum.

Critical thinking and analysis

How can a quadruped dinosaur robot help you level up? By conceptualizing and designing a robot to perform a task or solve a problem, analyzing its success, and then iterating and testing to optimize performance students develop vital critical thinking and analytical skills. These skills, identified by the World Economic Forum as a top 10 skill of 2025, are essential to developing the robots of the future 🤖. 

Creativity, originality and initiative

Technology is not a cut and paste, one size fits all topic.  By pairing UKIT hardware with our innovative curriculum, we encourage out-of-the-box thinking. With over 900 pieces in UKIT Advanced, students can flex their creativity as they assemble limitless variations of sensors, servos, and pieces to create their own unique robot. In conjunction, the curriculum challenges students to design robotic models that tackle societal challenges with real-life impact. With Creativity, Originality, and Initiative identified as a top 10 skill for the jobs of 2025 according to the World Economic Forum, our STEM curriculum was designed to foster these skills within students and classrooms.

Leadership and social influence

Leadership and social influence skills, as defined by the World Economic Forum as part of the top 10 skills for the jobs of 2025, can be gained by students by learning with robotics. With the UKIT system, our robotics project-based learning approach allows students to work collaboratively in small groups or pairs, requiring students to practice effective communication to move their ideas forward.

By allowing students to learn about various ways to lead within groups, we equip them with leadership skills for the future.

Technology use, monitoring and control

With the most recent landing on Mars with the rover ‘Perseverance’, both NASA and JPL showed the breadth of how many people were involved in not only creating the rover, but also getting Perseverance to Mars. Learning to use hardware in conjunction with software are skills that are considered essential for the Jobs of 2025, according to the World Economic Forum.  In our Or-Bot curriculum for the UKIT Advanced, we introduce these skills via learning about NASA and how robotics can play into future missions – even to Mars.  

Technology design and programming

Programming is an integral part of all UBTECH Education products, including our free programming environment, uCode.  While there is no doubt that learning programming is a large part of the future, it also aligns with the World Economic Forum’s top 10 job skills of 2025 in combination with Tech Design.  With uCode, students can not only code UKIT robots but also create digital games, animations, drive 3D simulations and utilize real-time AI programming. Sample codes are available to help and inspire students. Get started with uCode at idena.ubtrobot.com

Resilience, stress tolerance and flexibility

Our UKITs come with pre-designed builds to give students a great starting point while also leaving enough room for students to cultivate their own ideas on how to improve the design.  Through iterative design, students develop resilience, stress tolerance, and flexibility by learning how to work through frustration and how to maintain a problem-solving mindset when their code or robot is not working as intended. Instilling, teaching, and building these strengths are key skills for the jobs of the future according to the World Economic Forum’s top 10 skills for the jobs of 2025.

Reasoning, problem-solving and ideation

According to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report, reasoning, problem solving, and ideation skills are rising in prominence in the lead up to 2025. Our curriculum supports these skills starting at the earliest level with our UKIT Beginner. With projects like building the Golf Club robot and coding its swing trajectory, students learn about the concepts of force and motion in a very hands-on way. As students adjust their Golf Club to make a hole in one and figure out how to achieve greater precision and accuracy, students gain vital problem-solving skills.
