Combo is a project for innovative didactics, designed for students and teachers.
Combo is a project for innovative didactics, initially designed for students and teachers in Turin and Piedmont (but now open to schools all over Italy), carried out with various partners and in collaboration with the Piedmont Regional Education Office.
Every year, Combo welcomed approximately 180 classes from primary, junior secondary and secondary schools (approx. 3,000 students and 300 teachers). In October 2019, Combo was also visited by ErasmusPlus students from 5 European countries.
For the 2019-2020 school year, Combo offered 3 didactics workshops focussed on maths using robotics, in collaboration with industrial automation multinational Comau and its e.Do educational robots.
The 3 workshops were designed to highlight topics that specifically tie in with the study curricula of primary, junior secondary and secondary schools.
After the experience of the Combo laboratories at the headquarters of Agnelli Foundation, moved by the desire to involve schools throughout the country, it was decided to design an online module to use virtual robots and learn mathematics.
RoboSpazio – online robotics workshop
Combo RoboSpazio is an activity lasting 4 hours, during which students, accompanied by their teachers in the tech lab and remotely followed by a tutor, will use virtual robots to overcome, in groups, math and robotics challenges .
Activity aims to improve understanding of space and Cartesian reference systems, coming to understand operating bases of global positioning systems, such as GPS.
RoboSpazio is aimed at all upper secondary school classes, of every path and address.
Online course allows elimination of geographical constraints: it will be able to participate at the experience for classes from all over Italy.
The workshop is developed by Agnelli Foundation in partnership with Comau.
In 2021/2022 we involved more than 1,100 students in 27 schools throughout Italy.
In 2022/2023 we involved more than 900 students in 37 schools throughout Italy.
