European Robotics Week – Exploring Lego Robotics in Primary Education
The European Robotics Week (ERW 17-26 November 2017) was conceived at the European Robotics Forum (ERF) 2011 by the desire of the European Robotics community to bring robotics research and development closer to the public and to build the future Robotics Society. Since then and every year, the ERW has offered one week of various robotics related activities across Europe for the general public, highlighting the growing importance of robotics in a wide variety of application areas and the growing importance of skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Educational Reach-Out – At our school we will present basic and practical laboratory activities/exercises in robotic manipulation, computer vision, artificial intelligence and mechatronics. These exercises supply the students with hands-on experience, the most essential part of robotics education.
EV3 Coding Activities
Line Detection – Students will construct the Robot Educator base model adding the Color Sensor pointing down.
Object Detection – Students will construct the Robot Educator base model adding the Ultrasonic Sensor pointing forward.
