Educational Program – NOESIS MAKER

The NOESIS MAKER by Robotixlab program is a series of independent workshops on science and technology and deals with the topics of Physical Computing, Video Game Design and Electronics-Soldering.

Each thematic workshop is completed in 3 sessions of 90 minutes each and concerns 2 age groups: students D ‘- S’ Elementary and students A ‘- C’ Gymnasium.

Physical Computing

Most innovative technology applications today, from cell phones to smart homes, are based on Physical Computing technology and more specifically microcomputers with sensors and actuators. In this topic we analyze this technology by experientially seeing some applications as examples. Next, we learn to work with the necessary tools (hardware / software) to create our own simple applications, such as hiking counters, electronic musical instruments and radio devices for wireless telemetry applications. During the second and third meeting we apply the basic knowledge of the first laboratory to implement a more complete robotics project with movement, light and interactivity. The larger age groups delve deeper both in terms of programming and in terms of the use of peripheral sensors in the system.

Dates: Saturday 3/10, 10/10, 17/10

Time: 11.30-13.00 for primary school students

Time: 13.30-15.00 for high school students

Stock: 15

Cost: € 60.00

 

Video Game Design

This theme puts the participants on the “back of the curtain” and reveals the logic, rules, math and algorithms of simple video games. Through this workshop we give the opportunity to reward video games, as children from ordinary users become the makers of their own video games. During the first introductory meeting we analyze the video games and get to know experientially playing with a relatively new category, that of interactive games, which lift you off the couch and are played with movements of the whole body. Finally, we learn the necessary tools, so that in the second and third meeting we can make our own video game. The older age group follows the same general structure, but uses different tools (hardware / software) to create a more “advanced” game.

Dates: Saturday 24/10, 31/10, 7/11

Hours: 11.30-13.00 for primary school students

Time: 13.30-15.00 for high school students

Cost: € 60.00

 

Electronics – Soldering

Participants acquire some basic knowledge about electronic circuits, their design and the construction of electronic boards (PCB design). They also learn about the safe use of the soldering iron (soldering iron) and stick to practice some electronic components on a general purpose board. During the second meeting, they design a simple creative electronic circuit (with sound, motion or light) and build it by gluing the components with a soldering iron. In the end, they keep their construction for the house. The largest age group of participants designs and builds a more complex electronic project.

Dates: Saturday 14/11, 21/11, 28/11

Time: 11.30-13.00 for primary school students

Time: 13.30-15.00 for high school students

Strict order of priority will be observed in the sections of all topics as places are limited.

Robotixlab laboratories are designed by Robotics Engineer, Antonis Kanouras and implemented by Robotixlab and its trained animators / trainers. Thessaloniki-based Robotixlab has been planning and implementing robotics and technology activities for children since 2008.
