LABoral will hold a new children’s robotic camps, aimed at kids aged between six and 16 years old, over the Easter period. The participants will construct robots and learn basic programming concepts during the three-day intensive sessions which are to be held on 14, 15 and 16 April, from 10 am to 2 pm.

As part of its educational programme, the Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial in collaboration with Robotix Educación has designed a comprehensive programme for the school year 2013-2014 which is intended to enable the participants in the different activities to learn the basic concepts of robotics and programming while, at the same time, developing creativity and critical thinking. To do this, the LEGO WeDo construction set and Lego Mindstorm NXT platform are used to build robots.

Educational robotics is a tool which allows children from a young age to build their own learning, leading them towards scientific knowledge. It facilitates their learning in a practical, simple and stimulating way, turning them into creators and researchers and not solely consumers of knowledge. The logic of computer programming and debugging allows children to develop intellectual resources that will prove very useful in the future.

ROBOTIX harnesses these new skills and competences using a consolidated and proven teaching model, developed by Lego Education, which is used in leading countries in education such as Finland, Sweden, Korea and Japan. It encourages talent, communication, entrepreneurial spirit and curiosity for discovering and learning among the participants.
