See the Solar Eclipse 2017! During the day of the Eclipse, we will have activities for the enjoyment of teachers, students of High School and University at our campus.
CS4Girls close ended successfully! The girls prepared to give a demonstration of each of their projects. They included videos and pictures, even thanked the great experience at UPRA.
The girls of CS4Girls, on their last day of academy mounted Bristlebots and decorated it creatively. They formed mustaches, butterflies, and many other things. They are really curious!
Today our girls learned about swarm robotics and Swarmathon. They used NetLogo and also had the opportunity to program innovative strategies to search for resource efficiency. In the afternoon, they experimented with the strategies learned and were part of a fun competition.
The assembly of robots with VEX Robotics platform was continued. The girls tested their knowledge of the previous day in the construction of their machines. They demonstrated teamwork and application of concepts. We continue the success!
We start our second week! Today our girls learned basic concepts about simple machines and gears. These topics are very important for successfully designing robots. In the afternoon they began to implement the concepts, building a new robot using the VEX Robotics platform. The adventure continu
Our girls worked on Lego Mindstorms EV3, using sensors, learning and practicing on control structures using the challenges and applying everything learned. Also, they finished the day realizing the challenges “Exploration of the space” of Lego Mindstorms.
CS4Girls participants also had the opportunity to do a solar observation and learn a little about astronomy; Safely, using personal glasses and telescopes. We have a great time and we are very surprised by the enthusiasm and passion with which this group of young people learn and enjoy the activities!
Using the Lego Mindstorms EV3 native software, our participants had the opportunity to program the robots they put together yesterday. They started with simple engines and movements. After mastering the acceleration and turns, it was passed to sensors, ultrasound, contact, gyroscope and how to use them to change the behavior of the robot.
After lunch, we went to the UPRA cinema where the movie “The Voyage of Curiosity” was presented. We hope our girls see the impact of robotics on space exploration.
