Let the children dive into learning about robotics and its impact in our daily lives! In addition to their practical usage, robots can also be helpful in creativity:
The intermedia workshop promotes an in-depth understanding of robotics and its involvement in art, security, production. Are we aware of the potential of new technologies that surrounds us? They enable us new ways of creativity – and this is the purpose of this workshop: to awake interest in new technologies and to understand both positive and negative effects of robotics and technological development.
Individual design is important
The workshop is designed to allow individual involvement and adapt according to participant’s abilities; starting with introduction part, where the role and operation of robots is presented. The creative part of the workshop is focused on use of devices. Participants will assemble a robot and define a program for function control. Through the creative process participants will collaborate, exchange opinions, intertwine and resolve complex technological terms and tools.
