Yesterday we participated in the third Firujiciència Science Fair with our robots, showing a thousand students from Castellón that science can be fun.
Our star was the NAO robot, which danced and moved for the students each 30 minutes.
Not a lot of people when we started.
It changed very quickly.
We continue our science dissemination work, this time with a visit to our lab from CEIP Manel Garcia Grau. Twenty eight seven and eight year old students saw our robots moving around with great success...
And dancing, and fun!
Erasmus Mundus Advanced Robotics Master (EMARO+) has received more than 700 applications for grants from the European Comminssion or the Consortium, superating the previous record.
In the photo we can see some of the second yeat Master students in Castellón, Spain, with two of the coordinator teachers.
Professor Ángel Pasqual del Pobil is one of the organizers of IJCNN 2017 Workshop on 'Developmental Plasticity and Evolutionary Robotics' that will take place in Anchorage, May 19.
We have been one of the sixteen teams selected from all around the world to participate in the Amazon Robotics Challenge 2017 (ARC2017 https://www.amazonrobotics.com/#/pickingchallenge) which will take place in Nagoya, Japan, in conjunction with the RoboCup 2017 (http://www.robocup2017.org/eng/index.html).
During these months, we are collaborating in the program "Pràctica a l'UJI", an iniciative organized by the Jaume I University in which small groups high school students and their teachers come to the university to learn about the university and the different studies we impart.
This year we are giving them a two hours lab on autonomous mobile robots.
As we can see, the teachers were also very interested in the activities.
Robotics' Master: We are approaching the end of the semester and the EMARO+ students at UJI are presenting the results of their works in some subjects.
