Who switched off the lights?

A week ago, on October 20, 2016, the main electrical panel at Orsova Subsidiary of Palatul Copiilor Drobeta Turnu Severin totally burned. I initially understood that the teachers felt the smoke, announced the authorities and the fire was extinguished. Actually, on that day the teachers just observed an electricity blackout. On the second day they saw that the electrical meter exploded. Fortunately, the fire did not spread.

I am a child just like you

On the 1st June 2016, a team formed by two members of Conexiuni club (Andrei Vasilcan and Claudiu Savu) and two teachers from Palatul Copiilor Drobeta Turnu Severin (Maria Agape and Mihai Agape) visited the school Centrul Scolar pentru Educatie Incluziva (School Center for Inclusive Education) "Constantin Pufan” Drobeta Turnu Severin.

We have organized, for the special kids in the host institution, different demonstrative and hands on STEM activities related to 3D printing, Robotics (line follower, line and wall maze solver) and Scratch programming.


GREPIT Next Conference

The GREPIT Next STEM conference has been held, yesterday, April 16, 2016, at Cora Drobeta Turnu Severin. There were presentations and workshops related to virtual reality, augmented reality, gadgets for STEM education, IoT, programming and robotics.

I presented the international competitions organized by Filiala Orsova of Palatul Copiilor Drobeta Turnu Severin (ROBOTOR and SCRIPT), the previous European projects we were involved (RECAP and KAREL), and some free resources related to Scratch programming (Robo Scratch course on the Moodle platform of #Scientix project, and the e-book Scratch Companion) and robotics (Karel User's Manual).

I made a demonstration with Karel robotic platform configured as a line follower robot. I also conducted a Scratch programming workshop using Robo Scratch course.
