Robotics Course from Inspiring Science Education (ISE), Universidad Internacional de La Rioja (UNIR)

Become a robonaut expert!!

From October to June 2015-2016 (36 hours)




In this course you will learn a lot of things about electronics, programming, 3D design and all of this while we are playing and building our own electronics projects.

  • Learn to programm a control plate and a robot brain, and prepare yourself to pass our programming challenge.
  • Learn how to use the 3D modelling in a computer living a magic adventure.
  • Materialize your dreams and start it up building your own competition robot. Once, the course is ended, you will participate in a robotics competition among your colleagues.

This course is organized in the framework of the UE fund project ISE, by UNIR and the company BQ.

Video: Robo Workshop from Inspiring Science Education, Spain

We have visited the La Salle San Rafael School, in Madrid, Spain to live a Robo Workshop. The european fund project, Inspiring Science Education, has a main objective: to provide digital resources and opportunities for teachers to help them make science education more attractive and relevant to students’ lives. Through the Inspiring Science Education website and the activities organised by the partners, teachers can help students make their own scientific discoveries, witness and understand natural and scientific phenomena and access the latest, interactive tools and digital resources from within their classrooms.


Óscar Caballero, educational robotics lecturer, tell us about his experience with pupils from ISE project. We talk with him about motivation, the variety of subjects that have an influence in robotics and the values transmitted by this discipline.

Lía García, CEO of Logix 5, partner company in the Inspiring Science Education project, gives us her vision on the multiple aspects that Robotics may enhance in the pupils´ curricula. Among them, we can find: the logic thinking development, problem solving, language precision… Furthermore, she adds “robotics has a fundamental ethic component. Scientist around the worlds are wondering about what kinds of robots we can build in the future”.

Javier and Juan have built up a car able to detect obstacles, stop in front of them, and wait to the obstacle removal to move forward. They have made it in the ISE project framework and they have told us in detail how they have conceived, and built this car, with its difficulties and the solutions that they have found to solve it.
