Summer is coming and I get through the summer camps in Piedmont with my robots!
My will to transmit robotics to children hasn’t stopped even in Summer.
What am I doing now? Easy! I’ve brought my fruit playing, through the Makey Makey card, to even two summer camps.
In Asti there were over 80 children of all age groups, very enthusiastic and curious. And then in San Michele, Alessandria, where I wanted to give the children of the hamlet where I live the chance to adventure into this robotic and electronic world.
It’s always an emotion beyond description to see children get astonished when they experiment with and see fruit playing, a balloon drawing on a screen or even more when they see a robot moving alone or dancing.
Every time that I show a robot to children, before activating it, I ask them what they think it does: there are all sorts of answers, from the simple movement as far as talking or throw objects.
They are always thrilled by DanceBot, the Zurich ETH robot which dances and turns on the led in time with the music.
But above all they are disbelieving when I say to them that also children can build it and in September I’ll start these courses, too.
Every time children are able to astonish me with their simplicity and above all with their ability – and I hope they’ll never loose it – to not follow adults’ schemes, often so dull and too similar.
If you are children, too, or have kids 6-14 years old and want to experiment with the robotic and electronic world, you cannot miss my summer camp!
Besides doing robotics we play also really many games, we do the hunt treasure and we sleep in a tent to enjoy at the best a really cool week, in July. I wait for you!
