May 2005

A global vision of the event


  • reflect on the experiencesthat have taken place;

General objectives
General objectives

  • discuss how inter-relational and cooperation skills have been established by means of the project portal (forum, video-streaming, video-conference, chat);

  • illustrate

    • how the students and the teachers have analysed problems concerning the construction of the robot and how they have experimented with “innovative” solutions;

    • how they have used basic or re-cycled materials;

    • how they have created a common robotic platformand have carried out hardware and software personalisations;

    • how they have improved their ‘know-how’;

    • how they have checked that the final product (the robot) is the result of group research and cooperation.

Objectives for young people
Objectives for young people

  • the realization that they have taken part in an important transnational experience, which has allowed them

    • to share the same objectives and values, spirit of initiative and creativity,

    • cooperating in the creation of a common project,

    • creating a network of schools

    • and using online communication tools (forum, chat etc,);

  • experimenting in the field using a common language (English), developing a robot for the competition, “challenging” other competitors.

Common elements
Common elements

  • weekend (Thursday Friday, Saturday, Sunday) or including a Sunday (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday): in order to allow the participants to use discounts offered by airlines;

  • ½ day to experiment the route and read the competition rules: during this time the participants can exchange information, see the work carried out by their colleagues, exchange tactics and prepare their robot…

Common elements1
