The students from class 4B will participate in an event that will be organized in three workshops - Scratch, Robotics and Automation programming language with Lego WeDo, Python and AstroPi introduction. Beginning with the school year 2018-2019, the students from class 4B will study the optional discipline "Let's Discover Cosmic Space". One of the learning units is based on robotics and programming content and skills. The event will take place in 3 stages. The first workshop will introduce into the programming language, the Scratch application will be introduced. Students will program using tablets. The second workshop will be about robotics and automation in primary education. The children will be challenged to build a rover to go to Mars. To accomplish their mission, students must use pulleys, aggregation methods, engines to move the rover on the Martian ground. For this workshop we will use the Lego WeDo kit. The third workshop will be about discovering a series of programming techniques with Python 3, exploring Astro Pi: Mission Zero. Students will try to write a short program that could run on the Astro Pi units of the International Space Station. We also proposed that students from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Information Technology, "Valahia" University and pupils from the pedagogical classes in the school should attend the event. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2307634722643468&set=a.442800412460251&type=3&theater

Scratch workshops will be addressed to primary school pupils. They will be challenged to write a few lines of code to move 1-2 characters on a route that will then be executed in outdoor lessons. They will work in teams, each trying to propose another route

This activity will take place at school .It is designed for students aged 12 -13 years old. Students will explore the world of Minecraft .The first activity will be some unplugged games .Students will discuss about the qualities of heroes .They will develop their critical mind skills , linguistic competences in English , their programming skills and digital competences.The second lesson will be about creating their own Minecraft game.They will design a scene, will write a simple story in English and will write the steps /key action for their characters and heroes.The next two lessons students will use and improve their computational thinking skills and will play Minecraft and will create their own mini game. For this activity students will use smartphones, laptops and tablets.
Start: Oct 18, 2019
We will organize programming classes in Python in order to write code for Raspberry Pi. Students in high school classes, who already know this programming language, will be mentors for the little ones. At the end of the programming week, the pupils will be able to write the code for Raspberry Pi devices we already have in our high school. Our aim will be to measure the pressure, temperature, humidity, to record the smallest vibrations and to measure the magnetic induction of the Earth. We will also write code to program the cameras (in visible and in infrared). We will monitor the parameters in hard-to-reach places Using Raspberry Pi already programmed.
Start: Jun 23, 2019
Children are going to challenge themselves to find different usages of coding in the real life
