Objectives

Concrete objectives and Strategy
Sustaining by mutual approaches the cooperation for future professions in new mechanical fields: mecatronics, robotics (field study at employment area )
Investigating the use of robotics in European industry and the social representation/role of robots in modern life
Comparing technical learning, exchanging methodologies, curricula and good practices in partner’s countries
Stimulating  interests in Robotics as a career, encouraging technical education using the attractiveness of robotics
Creating a common practical workshop on ‘How to build your robot’ in cooperation between teachers at European level
Creating and sustaining Robot’s Clubs in every partner’s institution (applying the course&creating robots)
improving technical skills of students, technical competencies in mechanics, mechatronics, robotics; stimulating team working, cooperation, scheduled work program, English learning, non-formal learning
Using VOLL (Vocationally Oriented Language Learning) for making more productive students at VET
Projecting, designing and constructing a robot as a final product.
Main subjects
Robotics as a new science and its importance today.
Developing/Enhancing/Improving professional competencies for teachers and students
Career Growth
Step by step approach :
1. Analyzing and sharing technical educational practices and experiences developed by participating organizations and implemented at different national levels.
2. Forming the team-work of teachers and students and creating the Program for exploring the project’s themes. Additional instruments for creating/measuring social representation/role of robots in daily life will be created.
3. Direct involvement of trainers in drafting the contents of the practical workshops ‘How to build your robot’ (to be discussed by partners). An English version will be jointly defined by partners, each one focusing on a specific aspect. Testing/Translation of the contents into each national language.
4. Creating the Robot’s Clubs in every partner’s institution and implement workshops created in the first year: students building robots with engines or/and robots with sensors added by a certain programming language and individual design (according to the capacity and skills of students and teachers involved). The work can be organized both in National and International teams.
5. Gathering new words at robotics in terms of VOLL (to be published)
6. Robots by partners will be presented in a final festival-competition.
