Viola Székely - Lego Mindstorms workshop

"I have a great passion for engineering and modern technology. What most energizes me is fostering creative ideas to boost youngsters to find their path, which moves them towards engineering careers. Being an engineer, I discovered that amazing results could be achieved when a project-based mindset is applied from an early age."


Viola Székely is talking about Lego Mindstorms and its possibilities: how children can be involved by the coding tool itself. Viola shares some personal stories about Lego, Robotica how it influenced her. Then she shows a simulation and gives us a short inspection of how it is possible to code the movements and voices of a robot. In the final part, she invites the participants to cooperate with her on an online challenge that can be adapted in the pedagogical practices, too.
