SEAMEO STEM-ED is partnering with the University of Tsukuba and the Science Centre for Education to host a workshop titled “ArTec Robo Workshop: Programming Activity to Develop Mathematical Thinking at Kindergarten and Primary School Levels” ─ to shape how students learn programming and mathematics in a systematic and creative way with Artec Robo (a programming kit comprised of blocks, sensors, motors, and software to make customizable robots). The workshop will provide teachers, educators, and policymakers insights into how to craft frameworks and design programming activities in the classrooms without teaching programming language.
The workshop will be held on December 17th, 2022 from 8:30 AM to 16:00 PM at the Natural and Environment Building, Science Center for Education, 7th floor. In this workshop, participants will meet an eminent Japanese mathematics professor, Dr. Isoda Masami from the University of Tsukuba.
