项目负责人: Dr. Vincent Lau (计算机科学系)
电话: 2857-8460

Project Objectives:

arise the interest of HK primary and secondary school students in software development and robotics technologies


Project Description

The project is extension of KE projects in 2010, which received positive feedback and already acquired the necessary equipments (netbooks and robot kits). We will arrange seminars and workshop for 100 primary and secondary school students, mostly with no software programming experience, to learn some introductory knowledge on engineering, software and robotics.

Participants will learn about programming through a visual programming tool – Scratch, which was developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). At the workshop, they will learn how to program the robot's facial expression and dance movement. A control panel is also created to tele-control the robot with remote video, and students will have exciting competitions. Some photos of last events:


Target Deliverables in 2010/11:

- Seminars and workshops for around 100 secondary and primary students



- Broadlearning Education Limited
- Hong Kong New Generation Cultural Association Science Innovation Centre
- The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups
