The use of robotics in the classroom has been touted as the next great educational tool. However, very little research exists to supports this idea. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine if robots are an effective tool to teach science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to youth. The study compared the mean scores of a control group an experimental group that received a robotics intervention for six weeks. The results indicate that the robotics intervention was effective at teaching youth with 128% increase in mean scores and a large effect size of rs = .943 where t(20.67) = 12.93.
