The Robotics Social Club Program

This is part of our Resources for teachers series

Specialised social clubs are an excellent way to promote inclusion in mainstream schools. We implemented and evaluated a robotics social club to investigate whether if it would support the development of peer network for students on the autism spectrum. The result? The club increased social networks, motivation, engagement, personal and social capabilities and task and technology skills. It also helped enhanced teachers’ ability to better understand and support their neurodiverse students.
