Sagrado Corazón High School Teaches Basics of Robotics and Automation Using DOBOT Robots

Overview

Results

Colegio Sagrado Corazón (Sacred Heart School) in Logroño, La Rioja, Spain has been providing robotics and automation classes since Sep. 2020. 65 students age 15-18 which are 10th, 11th and 12th graders have been taking 4 classes per week to learn about principles or robotics and elements of automation.

 

Course Content:

1. Principles of Robotic

2. Elements of Automation

2.1 Robotic simulation and physical testing

2.2 Online programming.

2.3 Offline programming.

2.4 Computer vision and Voice recognition

2.4 Sensors and actuators.

2.5 PLCs and Robots.

 

Course Objective:

1. Students will employ engineering and scientific concepts in the solution of engineering design problems.

2. Students will develop problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge of research and design to create solutions to various challenges.

3. Students will also learn how to document their work and communicate their solutions to their peers and members of the professional community

4. Students will develop the skill of teamwork and collaborative robotics.

 

For the 4th consecutive year, the Call for Dualiza Grants from Fundación Bankia and FPEmpresa has selected one of their Professional Training projects: “Autonomous Vehicles and Collaborative Robotics in the Smart Warehouse” as one of the most innovative in the country.

 

This collaborative project between the Center and companies in the electricity sector is aimed at improving the motivation, training and employability of our Basic and Middle-Grade VET students from the Electricity and Electronics family. At the same time, it responds to the urgent need of Riojan companies to train electricians for the digital age. This training completes the curriculum, introducing the student to autonomous vehicles and collaborative robotics in a simulated family environment in La Rioja: a winery.

 

What teachers said about the class:

"Our students have been very motivated by this collaborative learning with robots. They have worked on the principles of robotics and programming with a practical and fun methodology. The electrician of the future (and of the present) needs basic training in programming languages ​​to be able to configure the installations of Industry 4.0 and smart cities. 

This year we have started the project with these three levels of the Electricity and Electronics specialty. We will also carry out demonstrations for eighth and ninth graders with the aim of starting professional training.

We have also participated in two educational innovation projects that have helped us set up the robotics lab: “Robotics 5.0 at the service of the community “(collaboration with Loyolanet) and “Autonomous vehicles and collaborative robotics in the smart winery “(collaboration with Dualiza Bankia and FPempresa)"
