Junior University Workshops for children
MetadataShow full item record
Culture and education should be for all, and this is even more felt in a period of crisis where private resources diminish. In particular, involving children in academia is a way of raising awareness of children, their families and schools about academia and the facilities it can offer them. This paper is a modest contribution to this idea. It reports on a series of workshops launched at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, for children and their families. Workshops were organized under the new brand of Junior Uni. The paper reports in more details the experience of the workshops with robots organized at the Faculty of Computer Science by the authors of the paper. It concludes assessing the pro and contra of the initiative, and explains the planned new initiatives.
