School in Sigulda to use ro­bots in learn­ing process

Baltic News Network - - Front Page -

For the im­prove­ment of the learn­ing process at the Sigulda State Gym­na­sium, 15 STEM (sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neer­ing and math­e­mat­ics) ed­u­ca­tional ro­bots have been pur­chased.

A spokesper­son from the Sigulda Town Coun­cil noted that the ro­bots mBot Ranger have been bought with the sup­port of the Town Coun­cil and would add to stim­u­lat­ing stu­dent’s al­go­rith­mic and cre­ative think­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to the spokesper­son, mBot Ranger ro­bots can be con­nected to a smart­phone or a lap­top and to per­form sim­ple ac­tions – move the ro­bot in dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions, switch on its LED lights and oth­ers.

As the school con­tin­ues to mod­ernise the learn­ing process, it plans to in­crease the num­ber of ro­bots and is con­sid­er­ing the pur­chase of sim­i­lar prod­ucts that would al­low mas­ter­ing the ed­u­ca­tional con­tent in a more cre­ative and in­ter­est­ing way.
