Special Olympics UAE Unified Robotics program is an enrichment experience aiming to involve neurodiverse children, in mainstream education, to the fields of STEM and robotics. The program aims to inspire them to consider STEM for further education and/or as a career path.
Neurodiverse students can join mainstream students to create meaningful relationships, learn effective communication skills, and explore different learning pathways, as they explore Lego therapy-based activities and robotics.
Unified Robotics works with schools across the UAE to emphasize inclusion, independent thinking, and highlight self-reliance skills for neurodiverse children.
Special Olympics UAE offers training opportunities for coaches and team mentors to learn the technology and principles of inclusion, in order to confidently guide teams of diverse learners through the season of collaboration, creation, and competition.
The program runs once every academic year and includes teacher training, kick-off events, competition events, awards in different categories for diverse age groups, allowing all athletes to shine.
