Il codice da vinci
A project presented on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci the first maker of history.
We have created a kit consisting of constructions, an electronic board, some motors and cardboard components that are applied to the buildings through connectors.
The kit also contains a short manual that teaches how to understand the machines and physics of Leonardo's inventions by applying the principles of operation on a prototype built with similar lego technic bricks.
The goal is to create a simulation, ie the model will have to move, for this purpose motors and gears will be applied, controlled by a programmable microcontroller.
So the technology in this context will be used to animate, simulate Leonardo's invention.
Children will have to build programming through coding and start simulations. The schedule will be sent to the robot via an app on the tablet.
The educational curricula proposed in the kit are:
The paddle boat
The kit was designed to be used in the family and primary school.
Project in collaboration with the Rome museum Leonardo da Vinci Experience and the NOBILE institute in Rome
Emiliano gatti, Gianluca Meola
In 2013 he decides to devote himself to the educational sector holding the position of professor of computer science and robotics in various primary and secondary schools, including ultra-specialist structures in Rome, such as the Middle School of the Air Force NOBILE and the Scientific High School of Applied Sciences with biomedical address, Pio IX and Aviation College Nobile. His first objective is still to spread digital skills to the youngest through the project of the Italmaker association, of which he is today President, as well as creator. Motivated by the awareness of the gap in technological knowledge, developed during the various projects in which he was involved, he decided to promote skills in children to create a new digital generation.
Now recognized by the Ministry of the Economy as a patented Inventor with inventions already deposited, it has been participating in the Maker Faire Rome for years, bringing innovations and solutions for innovative teaching. Now promoter of educational courses recognized by international companies.
