FACE ROBOTS is an initiative to bring education on social robotics and electronic innovations to schools, universities, and organizations, so that children and youth are better prepared for the future full of robots.
Our vision is a prosperous world where every person can design, construct, and program a robot that in turn could help him/her bring positive value to society.
Our mission is to teach young generations in schools, universities, and organizations how to build and program social robots and to develop engineer mindset in children and youth through interactive courses 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 game-like way.
The course is connected to the domains of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) and IoT (Internet of Things) that are in high demand nowadays.
The FACE ROBOTS course allows you, as well as your colleagues and students, to
design, construct, and program social robots and electronic innovations, thus
developing engineer mindset and skills in electronics and hardware programming.
The uniqueness of the FACE ROBOTS course lies in the use of the gamification approach.
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 are rewarded with experience points indicating the progress each one has made, progression points visualizing their growth in certain domains, and skill badges demonstrating the specific skills they developed.
At the end of the course the new graduates observe 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 4 years: 2016 - 2019.
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 a quadrocopter.”
