Description of Hands on

The principle of the hands on is:

  • The organizers will propose a simple task to be realized in a
    “robotized” way at the very beginning of the school
  • They will select the students to form groups (between 7 and 10) whose nickname will be chosen by the groups
  • They will provide a robotics kit for each student groups and a set of basic tools. Only the elements of the kit and basic material such as plastic sheet, wood, paper, nails may be used
  • Each group will work independently and without any external help for designing and implementing their solution for performing the proposed task
  • All groups will present their system performance on Friday afternoon during a public seance.

This is not a competition, there will be no winner and the purpose is
too be imaginative, original, collaborative and to
think “out of the box”. And for sure to have fun !

There is no prerequisite for the hands on but some basic knowledge of
Arduino programming may help (although not using a computer is not against the rule !).
