Recently we have been working with David Li at XieCheJian, The first hackerspace in China. Li has been in internet and software industries for 15 years and has actively participated in opensource software development and movement for 20 years. He worked on interactive multimedia projects led by Steven Spielberg, virtual world project in Disney, enterprise IT in project in Japan and social applications in facebook. Last year, he started to look into opensource hardware ansd shanzai industry which led to the establishment of the first hackerspace in China that provides a fun space to explore the relationships among open source hardware, physical computing, and Internet of Things.
We got involved with David during the devlopment of Ardublocks, which is a visual programming enviroment for the Arduino microcontroller that helps to make is easier and more fun to get started developing physical computing application. We are happy to be working with him to help our students learn how Ardublocks work and apply it to Robotics.
Winner of the Wyolum Innovation grant recently and known for her interest in Social Robotics, Erin RobotGrrl has continued to act as a mentor for our Eaglesnest Robotics Students. Weekly, she is host to many Roboticist on her show RobotParty where different elements of Robotics are discussed at different levels. We are glad to have her as one of our friends. We have adopted her latest RoboBrrd activity into our curriculum to help our students understand how microcontrollers work in Animatronics. The RobotBrrd is has evolved into what is now an activity that wil help early robotics students learn how to Learn, Explore, and Originate by building and programming their own RobotBrrd. Thank you Erin for creating this wonderful activity for our Robotics Academy.
We would like to feature our friends in Madrid, Spain at Complubot. Led by Eduardo Gallego, Complubot Educational Robotics Association has been awarded several times in the Robocup and several other Robotic Competitions in Europe and other places. Complubot is a non-profit educational organization featuring three levels of students. Having a track record of not only holding their own competitions but attending back to back competitions around the world reflects in their students. Complubot teaches their students all the essential aspects of robotics to help them become a marketable Roboticist in the Robotics community. Recent efforts with the Arduino microcontroller was implemented in their new educational robot called LOTTIE LEMON, was featured at the World Maker Faire in New York City. In this video, the Complubot students display their expertise in thier product and thrive to help educate others interested in the Robotics community.
We would like to commend the efforts of Complubot in not only what they have done with the ARDUINO Microcontroller, but in taking their students through the trials and errors of learning robotics. It is in the midsts of these trials and errors that learning, exploring, and origination(L.E.O) happen. Hitting upon these key factors will not only create an end result that will flourish upon your organization, but the robotics educational community as a whole. We at Eaglesnest Robotics will follow your lead on this endeavor with our students. Thank you again Complubot, for paving our way in robotics education. Please take time to review what Complubot has done and see how their LOTTIE LEMON can help teach Robotics in your class room.Sean Lewis
