FACE ROBOTS is an educational initiative to bring social robotics and innovations to organizations and companies for them to be prepared for the future full of robots.
Our vision is a prosperous world where every organization and company has its own robot that helps it better interact with the world and bring positive value to society.
Our mission is to teach young generations in the organizations and companies how to build and program social robots and develop engineer mindset in them through interactive and fun courses and workshops enhanced with elements of gamification.
The FACE ROBOTS course is an interactive and practical learning programme on social robotics, electronics, and hardware programming delivered in a gamified way.
The course is connected to the domains of IoT (Internet of Things) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) that are in high demand nowadays.
The FACE ROBOTS course allows you, as well as your colleagues, employees, and their children, to construct and program social robots and innovations, thus developing
engineer mindset and skills in electronics and hardware programming.
Nurture your skills in social robotics:
Learn the basics of sensors, actuators, and logic of programming by playing with LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and building and programming your first robot.
Develop your engineer mindset:
Learn to assemble electronic circuits and program Arduino microcontrollers by using the Arduino Starter Kit and C/C++ language to create your social robot.
Advance your engineering experience:
Learn to design and create complex IoT systems and program Raspberry Pi microcontrollers by using the Raspberry Pi Starter Kit and Python language.
The uniqueness of the FACE ROBOTS course lies in the use of elements of gamification.
Our students benefit not only from interactive workshops and prototyping experiments. They also get access to an on-line platform, where they receive additional e-learning materials, practical tasks to accomplish, and challenges to test their knowledge & skills.
For completing the tasks and challenges students receive experience points indicating the progress each one has made, progression points visualizing their growth in certain domains of impact, and skill badges demonstrating the specific skills they developed.
At the end of the course the new graduates see how they have grown throughout the course and how their progress compares to the one of other students in the Leaderboard.
Delivered in Moldova and Ukraine
during 3 years: 2016 - 2018.
Educated in social robotics through
the course and workshops.
(That we know of) created by the
graduates of the course.
“I study applied Informatics, and I want to apply the skills gained in my future business related to electronics and 3D printing.”
“The world of programming is very interesting for me: you can implement whatever comes to mind. I like mostly the fact that it is possible to see the result of programming. For a long time already I want to build quadrocopter.”
