Bringing the T and the E Back to STEM Education: What Intelitek is Doing for Technological Literacy (Q&A)

“In a few years from now, technology is going to be just like English classes.” At least, that’s what Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek hopes for. Founded over 30 years ago, Intelitek has striven to provide what Yerushalmi calls a “technological literacy” in subjects such as automation, robotics, and machine process control.

Currently, they operate in over 50 countries, working in primarily community colleges and high schools. Recently, however, there has been a push toward middle schools and higher elementary, where Yerushalmi and Intelitek want to change the way children approach robotics.

“We want to make it something everybody has access to,” said Yerushalmi.

Intelitek doesn’t plan on stopping there, however. Yerushalmi also shared the launch of a new online platform that teaches how to code real and virtual robots.

“In STEM, there are two letters which are neglected,” the CEO said in closing. “We’re bringing T and E to everybody.”
