Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The objective of this Project is for the students to take advantage of their technology skills and creativity in order to solve real life problems such as environmental issues and economic threats to education leading to inequality and finally share this artifacts to the rest of the educational community in a fun, practical and worldwide way.
The audience will be sensitized to the importance of recycling but certainly this project does not end there but it also will show the audience an easy, economical, creative and fun way to bring basic robots to all social classes for educational purposes.


Through documented research and student´s design, students are going to conduct a recycling school campaign to reuse these materials for the development of robots. All process and interactions will be uploaded to a web site as well as some videos showing their process and activities. The web page also intends to start blogs for global communication and share and interchange some other solutions or projects around the world through social media, such as Facebook and Instagram. At the end of each presentation, through the App Kahoot students will carry out a session of interaction with the audience's questions and answers.
