ROBOTICS & CODING
ROBOTICS & CODING
Robotics is a branch of engineering, and it involves the conception, design, manufacture, and operation of the robot. Also, robotics matches up with electronics, computer science, artificial intelligence, mechatronics, nanotechnology, and bioengineering. This program aims to get familiar with robotic knowledge, history, current developments used in education. It allows participants to create thinking skills like computational and knowledge operational. All the participants will know basic movements about robotic and advanced applications
All the participants will:
- Know the history of the use of robots in education and current developments.
- Recognize the use and application of robotic theories in education.
- Learn the limitations and importance of using robots in education.
- Know teaching methods and techniques for using robots in education.
- Get the knowledge of computational thinking skills and basic components.
- Know unplugged events and use them.
- Know binary number systems and performs ASCII conversion.
- Identify hardware and software components of robots
- Know cable and/or wireless data transfer methods.
- Perform motion control using servo motors.
- Know color detection, object detection, touch-stop, distance, etc. sensors.
- Know the Conditions to use logical operators and decision-making structures.
- Make robots active, which separate objects.
- Activate the robot car with a parking sensor.
- Perform the fleeing robot activity.
- Design lessons, know features that make a lesson more innovative.
- Use design, iteration, prototype development steps to solve complex problems.
- Know the elements that make a course innovative.
- Use the ability to collaborate on a goal.
- Take care to use effective communication methods and techniques.
- Take care to use effective time management techniques.
Objectives of the Program:
- Describing robotic knowledge, history, current developments

- Creating immediate feedbacks
- Designing hands-on activities and inspiring discussions on best practices
- Working in groups cooperatively
- Preparing a sample lesson plan
- Teachers, trainers, educators, school administrators, etc.
Before the program,
- A detailed questionnaire to indicate their level of experience, teaching backgrounds, and training will be completed by participants.
- They will also prepare a presentation to reflect their teaching method.
- A participation certificate will be given to all participants.
- A Europass Mobility Certificate will be given if the participant demands it, as well.
