Robotic learning is essential if we want to deploy it in industry and in our societies. A project like this will help participants (students, parents or teachers) to understand and appreciate how robotics can be useful in their lives.

The use of robots at school will increase student motivation. They are scalable, innovative and creative educational tools that allow students to use digital technology as an enjoyable way to solve the problems they face. The multidisciplinary approach of robotics also makes the involvement and expression of all easier. Thus, students will be able to increase their knowledge and develop their curiosity as well as their communication skills. Students will also improve their science skills.



This week we had a new virtual meeting within the ERASMUS+ Project on Robotics.
This time we had to travel to La Force in France but unfortunately, for the moment, we still have the restriction for international trips with students so we decided to celebrate it virtually with daily online connections with all the participating countries, contests, didactic and playful activities.

The topic that has been worked during this week has been mainly the applications of robots in the industry of our region where the students have presented their work in this regard to the other countries and then participated in a contest with questions about the presentations. Students from each country also had to overcome programming challenges with LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robots.
On the other hand, an eco-robot design contest was held where each country presented a robot design with its functionalities, sensors, etc., which was won by the Spanish team by unanimous vote. Congratulations!
To close the events of this week we have done a cooking activity where students have cooked a cake and cupcakes typical of France.

Although we had a good time, we hope that the next meetings that remain within the project can be held in person because the interactions between students are an important part of the spirit of these projects and where they enjoy the experience more.

Thanks to all the students and teachers who participated in this event!

Esta semana hemos tenido un nuevo encuentro virtual dentro del Proyecto ERASMUS+ sobre Robótica.
Esta vez tocaba viajar a La Force en Francia pero lamentablemente de momento seguimos con la restricción para viajes internacionales con alumnos así que decidimos celebrarla de forma virtual con conexiones online diarias con todos los países participantes, concursos, actividades didácticas y lúdicas.

El tema que se ha trabajado durante esta semana ha sido fundamentalmente las aplicaciones de robots en la industria de nuestra Región donde los alumnos han presentado sus trabajos al respecto a los otros países y después han participado en un concurso con preguntas sobre las presentaciones. También los alumnos de cada país han tenido que superar unos retos de programación con los robots LEGO Mindstorms EV3.
Por otro lado, se ha llevado un cabo un concurso de diseño de eco-robots donde cada país presentaba un diseño de robot con sus funcionalidades, sensores, etc el cual fue ganado por el equipo español por unanimidad de votos. Enhorabuena!!
Para cerrar los eventos de esta semana se ha realizado una actividad de cocina donde los alumnos han cocinado una tarta y magdalenas típicas de Francia.

Aunque hemos pasado buenos ratos, esperamos que los próximos encuentros que quedan dentro del proyecto se puedan realizar presencialmente ya que las interacciones entre los alumnos son parte importante del espíritu de estos proyectos y en donde ellos disfrutan más de la experiencia.

Gracias a los alumnos y profesores que habéis participado en este evento!!
