Can Today’s Students Succeed at the Jobs of Tomorrow?

Will the rise of robotics and artificial intelligence in the workplace eventually rob today’s students of tomorrow’s careers? The question has become a growing concern among experts and researchers in the education and technology arena. In fact, earlier this month, a survey from the Pew Research Center of 1,408 experts in the field found that a full one-third of them believed that education systems would not evolve enough within the next 10 years to prepare workers for future jobs.   Read the Article


CoderZ for STEM

Intelitek® Launches CoderZ™; Announces Compatibility with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3

The CoderZ online learning environment uses virtual robots to enhance K-12 STEM education and advance the gamification of learning in a scalable, affordable way

May 10, 2017 Derry, NH – Intelitek, a global leader in comprehensive technology learning solutions, has announced the official launch of CoderZ, an online learning environment that empowers students, worldwide to learn how to program virtual and real robots within the STEM pathways.

Discovering innovative ways to engage today and tomorrow’s generations of learners in STEM-related fields becomes a bigger challenge everyday. “Robotics is a great way to introduce STEM into the classroom. While traditional robotics programs require a large upfront investment in equipment and teacher training, CoderZ delivers robotics, coding, and STEM to every student through a cyber-robot learning environment that is scalable, affordable, and accessible.” says Oren Elias, General Manager of CoderZ at Intelitek

CoderZ is also now compatible with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 so students can experience how their code is put into action using a robot. LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 enables students to build, program, and test their solutions based on real-life robotics technology.

CoderZ enables students to program their own cyber-robot while acquiring 21st-century skills. Exciting, built-in gamified missions motivate kids to accomplish challenges to acquire new skills and knowledge. Starting with a friendly drag-and-drop visual editor, kids can progress to code their virtual robot using text-based programming languages, regardless of their prior coding experience.

CoderZ is browser-based, meaning that kids can code their cyber-robot anytime, anywhere, inside or outside the classroom, supporting new teaching concepts including flipped classrooms. The learning environment also provides class management tools for teachers, coaches, and mentors, to track each student’s progress and activity in real time.

Intelitek offers teacher training through Professional Development workshops, specialized STEM webinars, and integrated curriculum materials. CoderZ is delivered with classroom curricula that be used either self-paced or teacher-led. The Product and supporting materials are available both in English and Spanish. The Company is offering a 14-day free trial of its CoderZ learning environment available at goCoderZ.com.

On March 22nd this year, the Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral, destination the international space station and on board, buried in between 7500 lbs. of supplies was a very unique piece of equipment designed and created by the Cypress Woods and Cypress Springs High Schools in Cypress, Texas.

Under the instruction of industrial technology teacher Mike Bennett and as part of the HUNCH program, that involves students in fabricating real-world products for NASA as they apply their science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills, the students designed a galley table for the space station to serve the astronauts. The HUNCH program — High School Students United with NASA to Create Hardware has been running for 12 years already.

NASA contacted Mike in 2013. “They needed a focal point for everyone to meet together in the space station to share a table for a meal or a workspace,” Bennett said. “This was a great teaching opportunity and It makes it even more rewarding to know that we contributed a functional piece of hardware already being used.”

The students, participants in Mike Bennett’s advanced engineering design and engineering design classes, worked with the Johnson Space Center and Lockheed-Martin to create the design, then manufacture and build the prototypes and final version that was sent to space in March. The team used the Intelitek industrial manufacturing classroom tools in Mike’s lab including the spectraLIGHT CNC machine to create some of the parts needed for this project.

The fold-up table was designed with a latch system that allows it to be pulled up and out, doubling its length. One side is set up for a smooth surface with Velcro dots that can be attached to hold objects in zero-gravity. The other side features a seat track with clamps and holders ideal for a work circle.

Cypress Woods students in the precision metal class performed machining on the table parts using the Intelitek CNC machine.Intelitek Benchmill
spectraLIGHT is an earlier predecessor to Intelitek’s latest milling, turning and machining solutions for industrial education classes. Intelitek designs and delivers education programs and teaching hardware that is industrial grade and is integrated with comprehensive curriculum, programming software, and pre-production simulation tools. This enables educators like Mike Bennett to teach beginners and advanced students. The programs take students from the most basic level to the point where they can manufacture NASA parts.

 Intelitek’s mission is to teach career readiness skills – our programs are designed to teach students both in high school and at vocational or college level schools with the skills and knowledge real job providers are looking for. Intelitek Advanced Technology Programs teach relevant job skills using real-world tools focused on desirable industry specialties and in-demand trades.

The learning portfolio teaches methodologies and operations for areas like industrial robotics, manufacturing, materials handling, prototyping, hydraulics, mechatronics, electrical, CIM, process control and industrial maintenance.

Intelitek Celebrates 26 Years of Partnership with SkillsUSA National Competition

SkillsUSA Intelitek PartnerAnother year and with even more excitement, Intelitek will once again play a major role in sponsoring the SkillsUSA National Competition by arranging and running three key competitions.  Intelitek has been supporting SkillsUSA since 1991 and we are so proud to continue our commitment to growing the skills of America’s youth and workforce to meet the demands of the changing work environment.

In 1991, Automated Manufacturing Technology and Robotics and Automatic Technology competitions probably had a different feel than in 2016, but we are sure the challenges and competitive spirit have remained the same. Since then we also added Mobile Robotics Technology to the competitions we arrange and Intelitek will have a team of people and a lot of equipment involved in arranging, setting up, running and judging the events. We look forward to seeing another batch of eager participants.

This year the competitions have evolved again and we will combine planning, programming, simulation and real-world implementation phases into the process. Intelitek and our event partners will provide the teams with all the components, software, materials and machinery required.

Robotics automation technology Intelitek SkillsUSA
As a company and as a team we challenge ourselves every day to advance our Teaching Solutions and when we arrive in Louisville, seeing the investment from the organizers and teams and the dedication of the participants is what drives us. SkillsUSA inspires our team to come back next year with even more vigor and newer ideas.
