Workshop 5 : Visual programming with robots and environmental storytelling
Time: October 13th, 13:30-17:30
Content: In this workshop, participants will learn the basis of robot programming according to STEAM education. The workshop will educate attendees the basis of STEAM and will cover programming skills. Mini robot is equipped with colour sensors. With colour coding of the track, the robot can be programmed to perform different tasks. While the robotis performing variety of actions, participants need to tell an environmental story. The idea is to popularise programming, STEAM education and creative storytelling. The workshop has been performed previously in Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong and Shenzhen.
