Virtual course on Educational Robotics taught at the Computing Youth Clubs

The course on Educational Robotics is being taught in a virtual way as part of the country's efforts to promote this discipline and as a response to the computerization program of the Cuban society; which concluded with a good acceptance among its participants.

This virtual course on educational robotics had over 1,700 participants in Cuba, being developed for two days from the capital, and which ended with a good acceptance among its participants.

This was reported by Daylin Perez de la Rosa, main specialist at the Institutional Communication group at the Computing Youth Clubs, an entity that promotes the joint initiative with the Technological University of Havana (better known as CUJAE).

She also specified that the workshop, which was broadcast since last Tuesday on the entity's Picta and YouTube channels, allowed the participants increasing their culture and learning, while the instructors at the Computing Youth Clubs were also able to gain a specialization on the subject.

Learning to program, becoming familiar with this technology, developing other skills while also encouraging the teamwork and the creativity, were some of the benefits that the users highlighted in the course, according to Perez de la Rosa.

This meeting also aimed at training various state entities in the use of this system, which contributes to the teaching of reading and computer programs such as software, said Maria Regla Silva, municipal director of the Computing Youth Clubs in Central Havana.

The educational robotics is a sub-discipline applied to the school environment, which in recent years has gained importance due to its proven effectiveness in promoting creativity in children and young people.
