Description: Officina Emilia organises training laboratories for teachers on micro robotics in didactics. Materials and procedures on educational experiences - tested since 2007 in the Officina Emilia?s museolaboratorio with classes of primary and secondary school of first and second grade - will be available for teachers who, after the training section, will bring these experiences within their schools on the basis of specific collaboration agreements.
The training section will take place in simultaneous small groups: primary school teachers will be trained for the activity called: ?Robot Crocodile? developed on WeDoŽ bricks, while secondary school teachers will be trained for two different activities called ?Robot linefollower? and ?Roberta?, developed on LEGOŽ Mindstorm materials.
50 teachers will be able to participate on the basis of previous reservation. The reservations must be sent by the 21 th November using the form available at the URL
In the next weeks, Officina Emilia will verify the possibility to involve teachers and schools managers working in the towns effected by the May 2012 earthquake in order to organise a similar initiative in Mirandola o Novi di Modena.
Target Audience Teachers of primary and secondary school of first and second grade
