Project —

My stay at Faber will give me the opportunity to meet microBlocks developers and other professionals allowing me to continue working in the design of activities.

Taking advantage of the Faber meeting, I will take the opportunity to develop and test new activities for the new model of Citilab’s robot. This robot is programmed with microBlocks, a new visual coding language and it is created using 3d printing technologies.

I hope this different tests of use with Faber community will allow us to improve the innovation in teaching and learning processes.
