Course methodology
- Brief introduction to each of the topics.
- Participants are involved in practical tasks including robot hardware assembly, adjustment and configuration, programming and debugging;
- Participants solve suggested tasks and challenges using EV3 software and hardware. Each one or two participants (depending on the number of course participants) will have one computer and one EV3 robot to practice and solve the suggested challenges;
- Participants share experiences and best solutions in group and plenary sessions;
- Individually or in groups, participants reflect and debate on robotics class management and robotics introduction in the school curriculum.

Course fee
The course fee is 420€.
Cultural visits and meals are paid separately;
Algarve cultural visit has the cost of 50€. Participants not willing to join the cultural visit must notify ACJI 15 days before course starts.
