Tvornica cementa Kakanj, a member of HeidelbergCement Group, will donate 40 mBots, 6 laptops and 5 tablets to 6 public primary schools in Kakanj, Bosnia and Herzegovina, to be used during regular curriculum of informatics. It is therefore necessary to introduce this new technology to the teachers of informatics, and provide them with the training as to how to assemble and program the robots. During this training session teachers will learn about hardware and software, benefits of use in the classroom, possibilities to integrating robots in curriculum. Using the coding exercise, they will learn to program an mBot to perform real-life robotic applications.

Educator Resources

The ultimate goal of the donation and training is to provide children in the local community with knowledge and equipment about robotics and its possibilities. The training will help teachers accept new technologies in their everyday work. After the training, the teachers will know how to use all the benefits of teaching with mBots and thus promote robotics in the classroom. Children will have new technology in their own schools. Teachers will been using mBot as an STEM educational kit for teaching electronics, programming and robotic concepts of varying complexity levels. mBot can be programmed using graphical (Scratch based) and coding (like Arduino). This will offer students to learn the basic concepts easily and then move to solve problems of higher complexity levels.
