My robots in Modena. Yes. Even there!
Too often we hear the young people of the high schools are lazy, that they want to spend the whole summer to do nothing, in front of the TV or the play station and many other things.
As you know well, I am not included in this category and I am always full of energy and I want to do and try everything, but I found out I am not the only one!
After the experience throughout Piedmont, my robots arrived to Modena: I met 60 girls of the third and fourth year of the high schools – coming from any line of study – who were learning coding and creating videogame over 4 weeks.
They were all very willing girls, with really a lot of will to do.
They were really happy that – for the first time since they had begun the summer camp – someone as old as they and above all a girl had come to tell about oneself. It can never be taken for granted in this field!
Everything took place inside the University in Modena, old style classrooms and buildings, where innovation was really necessary. Isn’t this the perfect way to bring it, is it?
Just arrived I started to prepare all my robots and the several instruments. I was finishing when the girls arrived.
All super curious to learn everything about the several “gadgets” by which I had filled the university desk.
According to me, they had never seen so much technology all together. It’s never too late to make them see it!
When I began to tell about and make see the several robots they were all thrilled. They asked me really many questions, all sorts of questions and what astonished them most was the fact I was able to do so many activities, completely unlike each other and everything within the 24h.
My answer was easy: it’s enough to be determined and fond of what you are doing.
My robots in Modena – and I with them – met 60 girls as old as I who are adventuring into the STEM world. I am sure there are really many other ones all over Italy to whom maybe only a small input lacks!My #robots at University in Modena among girls and #STEM Click To Tweet
On the contrary, if you are reading me and you don’t know what your passions are, yet…go and have a look at YouTube, look for tutorial videos of any subject and certainly – sooner or later – you’ll find your passion!
Through curiosity and determination. And above all never make you stop by anyone when they will tell you that’s impossible!
