The Workshop

Children are organised as is shown in the picture. They will sit at a table with a laptop to program the LEGO robot and a complete LEGO MINDSTORM EV3 set (The LEGO Robot). Children will work in groups of 2 selected at random, and they will keep the same group for all sessions. A Robot Companion (NAO Robot, AISOY Robot, or C2R4A Robot) will be on the table as a helper, social mediator, and will remember the time schedule.

There will be a private room ready for children that don’t feel comfortable in the classroom. In that room they will have LEGO to play with and an adult to play with them.
