Since 2007 I work at Citilab - Cornellà, near of Barcelona, where I had the chance to participate in the beginnings of the application of block visual programming, like Scratch and Snap!, in the educational world. I have participated in the creation of S4A (Scratch for Arduino) within the Edutec project, and collaborate in to the development of Snap4Arduino and MicroBlocks.

Now I coordinate the education area at Citilab and the Edulab project, which promotes the teaching of programming and robotics as a transversal language to understand and relate to technology and to develop critical thinking and creativity in schools. For this project also we designed a microcontroller board Citilab ED1 and a robotics Kit for education

No materials for the event yet, sorry!

At this talk we will share the experience with our workshop Farmlands, plagues and robots that we designed last summer and which we have been teaching since then, both with schools and families.

In this workshop we introduce the children to the concept of Agriculture 4.0, specifically how robots and AI can be useful to farmers and other workers for the land in order to improve the production of food and also to attract new workers to this sector.

For this purpose we use our Citilab ED1 Robot, already programmed with MicroBlocks, with a Huskylens AI camera attached to recognize several kinds of plagues and prepared to be controlled with Snap! through a Websockets connection.
