Robotics, Science and Coding Education course for primary and middle schools.

Faire: Rome
Maker: corsi di formazione di robotica educativa, programmazione e STEAM per bambini dai 5 ai 14 anni
Code Academy provides education course for schools of robotics, technology and coding to cultivate the passion of the new generations to study sciences and create robots. We organize various workshop for children 6-8, 9-12 and 12-14 years old lasting 60 min. with our teachers. The kids will build and write codes for interactive robots such as: * electric bicycle with graph of energy consumption on different surfaces (Scratch programming) * earthquake simulator with earthquake solutions * experimentation with electric circuit through percussion on sensors and programming with Micro: bit * innovative energy sources such as wind turbine We exhibit the presentations of the various projects created by our students (age 9-14): * solar panels with light reflection sensors that follow the light source and modulated to follow the sun's shift cycle to produce more energy * robots that collect wave energy with variables coded to calculate the energy produced GRABER-robotic hand: allows you to collect garbage safely.

e-Nable Italia – Experiments

Faire: Rome
Maker: Energy Family Project APS (e-Nable Italia)
Our community is dedicated to developing and providing free assistive devices for children and adults with limb difference problems. All of our projects are either open source derivatives or released by us (when original creations from our community) as open source. After SwimAble (the device for swimming, 2021) and the Bike Adapter (the device for cycling, 2022), this year we present the new ideas developed by our volunteers: the low-cost robotic hand prototypes and the devices that can help children to practice sports and in their free time, including an evolution of the bike adapters to be able to practice archery, a device that allows children with limb difference problems to play the drums and a tool for makers without 3d engineering skills that dynamically generates custom STL models of assistive devices adapted to the physical and anatomical characteristics of the recipients, to broaden accessibility to these devices.

ROVRDUINO is a small rover platform powered by an ATmega328 microcontroller. Much like the Arduino UNO, the ROVRDUINO has a "REV3" style footprint with the same headers capable of using existing Arduino shields and modules. This little robot features a variety of onboard sensors and can be programmed using the Arduino IDE. Because ROVRDUINO is intended to be a DIY kit, it can be easily soldered and assembled in just a single afternoon. While the ROVRDUINO doesn't require any advanced knowledge of electronics or microcontrollers, it can be modded and upgraded with all kinds of innovative ideas.
