eCraft2Learn project

DEI Univ. of Padua (Italy) and EDUMOTIVA (Greece) present the European Project eCraft2Learn https://project.ecraft2learn.eu and the development of an innovative learning ecosystem aimed to develop the 21st century skills in schools and out of schools combining Tinkerboards, RaspberryPi, Arduino, DIY electronics, 3D printing and simple crafting with everyday life recycled materials. The research team of the project will present the eCraft2Learn ecosystem through indicative robotic artifacts made by children in Athens. Teachers, parents, children, researchers will be invited to interact with the robotic artifacts, tinker their construction and explore the code behind their behaviour.
