Between 21 and 23 November, I participated in a robotics workshop organized by ESA, Belgium. During the workshop I participated in classroom activities, we made robots using LEGO WeDO hardware and software and used them for " a mission on Mars. "The workshop also featured Astro Pi, a Raspberry Pi computer used for programming in a space context. We have had an extraordinary experience of learning through discovery and experimentation. The Romanian team has worked with Greek and Portuguese teachers. After attending the workshop, I became more aware of the importance of studying cosmic space. I will carry out activities to promote the benefits of space and spatial education where students and teachers will learn about astronaut craft, a planetarium, an astronomical observer, and how to build its own rover.

This event is for:
  • Elementary school students
  • Employed adults
Main themes:
  • Robotics

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.

This lesson introduces an unplugged coding activity by engaging pupils in a competitive/cooperative game that makes them familiarize with the main principles of coding. During this activity students will: • Experience cooperation and competition • Understand the separation of roles between a coder (Cody) and a robot (Roby) • Familiarize with the concept of elementary instruction and instruction set • Learn that a sequence of elementary instructions can solve a problem • Test the correctness of a given program by simulating its execution • Understand that coding entails more reasoning than technology
Start: Oct 1, 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.
