Their vision is perfectly aligned with that of UdiGitalEdu, the research group of the University of Girona to which I belong.
My work here is not about teaching robotics or programming, as it could seem, but about fostering creativity, critical thinking and teamwork. Of course if children learn robotics and coding that would be welcome too! The participating children in these workshops will be involved from next January in the Inventors4Change project, where they will collaborate through the Internet with children from Catalonia, by making collaborative projects with Scratch.
Today we started with a fun activity that involves making "bristlebots" and "drawingbots".
It's very simple. If you want to replicate it, all you need is: toothbrushes, plastic glasses, sketches, tape, vibrator motors and button batteries. At the end of the post I'm embedding a video from Evil Mad Scientist where you can see all the process.
