Genoa, 24 July 2024: free robotics workshops with the Erasmus + ReSTELA project

Free workshop

24 July 2024 – h. 9-13

School of Robotics

Genoa, via Balbi 1a


ReSTELA is an Erasmus+ co-funded project whose aim is to provide online access to various STEM labs to teachers and students, especially those living in remote areas. The coordinator of ReSTELA is the European Centre for Emerging Competencies and Technologies in Cyprus. School of Robotics is a partner in the consortium, with the TalTech IT College of the Faculty of Informatics at Tallinn University of Technology in Estonia.

Participants in the 24 July seminar in Genoa will have the opportunity to learn about and experience the innovative methodologies developed by the ReSTELA project. Here are the digital and robotic technologies on which you will be able to experiment:

BBC micro:bit, Arduino, robotic arms and humanoid robots.

BBC micro:bit: is a small, versatile and easy-to-use development board for educational activities, from grade 1 to grade 2 – it can even be used in primary school! It can be used to teach the rudiments of programming: students can try their hand at writing simple lines of code, learning to understand the logic behind the operation of the electronic devices they interact with every day. With micro:bit, it is possible to acquire real-time data on physical phenomena, the construction of wearable computers or robots, and above all, to learn programming right from primary school!

NAO, humanoid robot: it is among the most complete humanoid robots on the market in terms of functional and technical capabilities. High-performance, multitasking and interactive, it can be programmed using several programming languages (Chorégraphe, Python, C++).

Arduino: is a hardware platform consisting of a series of electronic boards equipped with a microcontroller. With Arduino, small devices such as light controllers, speed controllers for motors, light sensors, temperature and humidity control automatisms and many other projects using sensors, actuators and communication with other devices can be realised relatively quickly and easily. Participants will practice with Arduino outputs: LEDs, buzzers, OLED displays (emitted light created through the interaction of live, carbon-based organic molecules deposited on a thin film to which the necessary electrodes are attached).

DexArm: a multifunctional robotic arm that can be used for a wide range of applications: 3D printing, laser engraving, etc. Participants will try their hand at designing the robotic arm.
