Educational Robotics with Lego Mindstorms EV3

For junior high school students

Educational Robotics is designed for high school students. Engaging in group activity, building a functionally autonomous and complex robot helps them to release their creativity and at the same time to empirically understand the concepts hidden behind Physics in an exciting way.

In order to function autonomously each robotic structure needs specific programming, which is here approached for the first time through complex algorithms that children can easily compile in the special programming environment that Mindstorms EV3 delivers in a virtual way.

Through interdisciplinary activities we teach students advanced programming techniques and robot modeling techniques, specially designed to solve problems in the real world around them. The tasks they complete using these robots, help students comprehend empirically the concepts of distance, time, speed, and mass that are difficult to learn at school because of their abstract character.

The skills of the 21st century related to the sciences of Engineering, Technology and Mathematics quickly become necessary for the students’ future. The practical approach of educational robotics converts abstract concepts into tangible teaching experiences and places learners at the center of the learning environment.


Purpose of the program

The purpose of Educational Robotics is the learning of physics, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in a fascinating way, where students can practically understand and apply the theories taught at school with simultaneous further development of advanced, complex programming techniques.
