Computer Science student presents Lego robotics workshop at Albanian school

Our computer science student, Ms Zoi Gkatsi, a very active member of the Robotics Club, organised on her own initiative, a Lego Robotics Workshop at school in Korce, Albania.

During the workshop Zoi discussed the basics of programming, bringing in the classroom her own experiences from the club on the Lego EV3 kits.

Approximately, 45 students participated in the interactive workshop that aimed at introducing them to computational thinking. Students were first asked to brainstorm on scenarios for the robot and then to work together to achieve the project’s goal by dragging and dropping movements for the robot. Children immediately saw the result of their programme as the robot acted accordingly. By the end of the workshop, children learnt how commands can be combined together to write programmes that enable robots to move in the 3D space.

The event was very successful as children were really excited to participate.

Congratulations to our student on this really nice initiative!
