A great close in the project "McROBO" with Lego WeDo 2.0
On 24th of September the NMS Stadl Paura (partner school in the project "McRobo") was our guest to show off their knowledge in robotics and programming as a conclusion of our 2 year project "Mcrobo".During the construction and the programming of "Milo, the space probe", the pupils obviously had a lot of fun and one immediately realized how much they could increase their knowledge in the last two years.
The McROBO project uses this joy of experimentation to introduce children and adolescents to science and technology and to playfully introduce them to topics such as robotics, digitization, virtual reality and the world of work in the 21st century. The aim of the project McROBO is to discover and promote talents and to establish long-term contacts with schools / youth / parents. In addition to the consortium leader RIC, the consortium consists of three strong business partners - BRP-Rotax GmbH & Co KG, Otelo Open Technology Laboratory Vorchdorf and Wacker Neuson Linz GmbH - as experienced scientific partners are on board the Ars Electronica Center, the Johannes -Kepler University (Department of Diversity & Gender Management) and the University of Applied Sciences Wels. In addition, six educational institutions are actively involved: from elementary school through the New Middle Schools to Higher Education Institutions.
