“Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.” – Martin Fowler
Introducing coding and robotic skills to VET students, while strengthening the profiles of VET teachers are among the aims of the Erasmus + project titled Robot4ALL. Using C++ as the programming language and Arduino robots the consortium has designed a complete on-line and off-line educational pack with teaching material, STEM skills scenarios and an interactive platform to support the introduction of coding and robotics in Secondary/VET schools.
During the C1 Short-term staff training that took place between the 5th -7th of September 2019 in Nicosia (Emphasys) the consortium pilot-tested the platform which will be used by both teachers and students as well as the material for (C++ & Arduino). Participants also had the opportunity to test the Oculus Rift S (Programming for VR), 3D Modelling and 3D Printing equipment which opens new opportunities in the teaching and learning processes.
We would like to thank our coordinator from the Leibniz Universität Hannover (GER) as well as the rest of the partners Ies María Moliner (ESP), @2 EK Peiraia (GR), Civic (UK), Fundatia CDIMM Maramures (RO), Cyprus Computer Society (CY) and Women in Digital Initiatives Luxembourg Asbl (LUX) for a productive training.
