Once again, the MAPIR group has contributed to the summer school held at the University of Malaga during July 2016 (official page in Spanish). The courses were intended to teach the basics of robotics to the most qualified high school students from all around Spain. After an intense week of lectures, practices, and two final projects in which all the students had to design and implement reactive behaviors in C-style programming language in the Lego Mindstrorms robots, the students visited our laboratory to see real mobile robots, how they work, and what sensors, actuators, and algorithms do they use to solve some real tasks.
We enjoyed the visit and hope that, in a few years, some of these enthusiastic students join the lab to help us bringing robots to a new level.
