Awesome Websites to Get Your Kids Hooked on Programming - TheITBros

You probably have heard of people learning how to code by signing up for classes on sites like Coursera, eDX, and Udacity, then leveraging the knowledge that they’ve gained to find jobs and/or internships. But what if your ten-year old kid expresses an interest in becoming a computer programmer? These MOOC sites aren’t exactly kid-friendly, and most of the courses that are hosted there require at least highschool-level knowledege to fully comprehend (plus kids might not be so keen on participating in online class discussions if their classmates are scary grownups).

Scratch-ing the LEGO WeDo

The LEGO® Education WeDo™ robotics kit is normally ear-marked as an elementary school product, and Scratch was developed by MIT for young children to be able to program, but the combination of the two has tapped the interest of my elementary school daughter, my middle school son, and my Computer Science students at the high school level.

That being said, the Arduino Uno must be connected to a breadboard and other elements to complete this tutorial. This JumboBooks tutorial gives the basics of how to program the Arduino in LabVIEW, including all of the information necessary to create each circuit. The tutorial starts off giving the user two basic pieces of code in LabVIEW to play around with, so that the user can familiarize himself or herself with the Block Diagram and how functions run and flow together.

Ο Πανελλήνιος Διαγωνισμός Εκπαιδευτικής Ρομποτικής «WeDo SCRATCHing» είναι μια εκδήλωση για την επιστήμη, την τεχνολογία και την εκπαίδευση που φέρνει σε επαφή μαθητές και καθηγητές από όλη τη χώρα με σκοπό να αναπτύξουν τη δημιουργικότητά τους και τη δεξιότητα επίλυσης προβλημάτων μέσα από τις προκλήσεις του διαγωνισμού.

Μαθητές της πρωτοβάθμιας εκπαίδευσης όλης της χώρας καλούνται να συνεργαστούν και να δημιουργήσουν ομάδες των 2-5 μελών, μέσω του σχολείου τους. Οι οποίοι πρέπει να σχεδιάσουν και να να δημιουργήσουν μια ολοκληρωμένη ρομποτική κατασκευή της οποίας θα χτίσουν και θα κινήσουν μέρη της είτε με παροχή ρεύματος (μπαταρίες) είτε με αυτοματισμούς μέσω του υπολογιστή. Ο διαγωνισμός εκπαιδευτικής Ρομποτικής «WeDo SCRATCHing» αποτελεί ιδανική ευκαιρία για εμπλοκή των παιδιών σε δημιουργική επίλυση προβλήματος με σύγχρονη τεχνολογία. Ο διαγωνισμός θα διεξαχθεί το δεύτερο δεκαπενθήμερο του Μαρτίου 2015. Περισσότερες πληροφορίες θα ανακοινωθούν το επόμενο διάστημα. 15 Best Google Drive Add-Ons for Education. Lego Mindstorms Hacks. Spy Camera Rover. Odin, a robot for odometry. Odin, a robot for odometry Odin is a robot that estimates its own position while it moves using odometry. In order to do that it measures as precisely as possible distances travelled and orientation of displacement.

Its mechanical structure is well suited for that: when travelling it rolls on four parallel wheel so it is able to go very straight. For turning, it raises itself on a central pivot, turns around it and goes down, ready for the next move. Of course odometry has limitations: Odin must roll on flat, smooth ground (preferably a hard one), and it is not cat proof... Even without hitting something, after a round trip Odin will come back at its starting position with some position and bearing offset.

Summer School. The Locomorph summer school was hosted in Denmark from 23-27 August at The University of Southern Denmark. We had 27 participating students from 17 different countries. The majority of the students were Ph.D. students, however, a few MSc students and a Post. Doc also attended. At the summer school students were introduced to current knowledge and techniques in morphology and morphosis of animals and robots.
