ENXENO: LEGO© Robots from University Lab to K-12 Classroom
AbstractAt this moment, the importance of technology in all the areas of knowledge is undeniable. Students must acquire competencies in technology during their primary and secondary studies. In this chapter we present the ENXEÑO workshop developed by the University of Vigo and oriented to K-12 students from schools in the surrounding area. The experience pursued a two-fold target of providing an introductory scope of the Electrical and Computer Engineering degree as well as approaching technological knowledge by means of a through play experience. Pros and cons of this innovative learning methodology are analyzed in this chapter. The experiments done during the workshop are described in detail both in contents and organization.
