Robotics for Kids

We teach kids how to design and program robots, using Arduino, Mindstorm and Edison. This will help them start a self discovery journey and start learning many other things, slowly moving from consumers to creators of new technolgoies.  We teach in English. The kids will learn from the best – our mentors are teenagers from Liceul de Informatica which built a robot by themselves and gain various prizes in national and internatinal competitions. Do not miss your chance to learn fro the best! Classes at Colegiul “Costache Negruzzi” , every weekday between 16:30– 18:30. Courses start on January 14th 2020. To register, call us at 0775505101 or email us at contact@agileroo.com.

Mihai Melnic

Mihai Melnic are 17 ani și este elev in clasa a X-a la Liceul Teoretic de Informatică ,,Grigore Moisil” din Iași. Este initiatorul proiectului Maria Robot , primul robot umanoid construit in intregime de elevii din Iasi. Mihai construieste roboti din clasa a doua, iar pe masura ce timpul a trecut, pasiunea lui a crescut din ce in ce mai mul. A reusit sa gaseasca alti elevi pasionati de robotica si de programare si aun inceput sa lucreze la proiectul lor frumos  – robtoul Maria, care a fost prezentat tuturor elevilor de la agileroo. A descoperit lumea inteligentei arificiale pe masura ce au lucrat impreuna la proiect,da nu numai atat. Mihai a invatat din mers despre marketing si sales si despre cum sa colaborezi intr-o echipa. Deci Mihai va fi un exemplu si in zona competenteleor de catifea, pe care se pune mare accent la scoala noastra. Echipa Agileroo este onorata sa il aiba printre mebrii sai pe Mihai.
