Exhibitors 2017



RoboKoding enables children to learn electronics, robotics and programming in a fun, interactive and collaborative way. Using different open-source electronics kits, during workshops and courses, children and teenagers are learning trough hands-on experience. For this year's Rome Maker Faire we will showcase our SumoRobot tool which allows two robots to compete on a SumoField, in a similar fashion to the sport of sumo. We will bring 5 robots which can be individually programmed even over a smartphone's browser. No prior knowledge is required.


Silver Kuusik, Ivana Atanasova

After completing his master’s degree in Computer Science, Silver Kuusik has pursued a career as a passionate maker and freelancer. While being a member of the Robotics Club of the Estonian IT College, together with Lauri Võsandi he developed the SumoRobot tool and the format of the workshop. He conducted a number of workshops for children, teaching them the basics of programming and robotics. Realizing the positive impact, as well as the need for a more creative approach for STEM education (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) to be introduced to children, he founded RoboKoding; a start-up with a mission of developing tools for teaching children programming, robotics and electronics in a fun, interactive and collaborative way.
