    • Interactive lesson comparing anatomy of robots with human body (supported by biology, physics and mechanics teachers). Students know the similarities in functioning (e.g. muscles – servomotors; brain – control unit; fingers, eyes, ears - sensors). After the lesson the group goes to another classroom. 3->1->2.
  • Visit of school (teachers)
  • Teachers’ meeting.
  • Lunch at school.
  • Robotics: building a robot, older students guide younger ones (Discovering, testing, writing programs and building robots to use the “touch sensor”. Students acquire the notion of sensor and understand how to use information from the "touch sensor", information not too different from that one coming from our fingers. The students write software to elaborate this information and make the robot act, not differently from how our brain makes with muscles.)
  • Free evening.
  • Welcome dinner.
