2nd Trainning Activity

From 24 to 28 May we held our second training activity. Due to the global pandemic situation, both face-to-face and online activities were carried out. On-site we were working (and also enjoying Ferrol) with the partners of:

Telematically, using Microsoft Teams, we were all connected, learning how to use Robobo and the students also gave a presentation on “Myths and Realities of Artificial Intelligence”.

In person, the students learned how to program in Scratch and how the “RoboboSim” simulator works. After making the program in the simulator, they bought its use in the real one, quite an adventure!

And as it wasn’t all about work, they also carried out activities to get to know each other better and also to get to know Ferrol:

Galician Curriculum Programme in AI

The regional government (Xunta de Galicia) has decided to create a group of experts that will define a curricular programme in artificial intelligence. The aim is to develop a programme to be implemented at all levels of education from kindergarten to university.
Within this group of experts is Fran Bellas, the AI+ project coordinator. With his experience as a professor at the University of A Coruña and his research in autonomous robotics and applied Artificial Intelligence, he will help to design curricular proposals that integrate the contents and competences linked to AI. On the other hand, José Viñas, teacher at IES David Buján and partner of our project, is also in this group of experts as a teaching representative.
Great initiative and very proud that two members of our project are part of this committee.
