Project: 

A training program for teachers and students of 50 Secondary Education centers in the Community of Madrid (12-16 years), consisting of technological entrepreneurship, reinforcing knowledge in creative technology through programming and robotics.

The participants work on a project aimed at solving the needs of the school environment from a technological and human point of view by involving the center itself and its students. To this end, Endesa Foundation equips the educational centers with 10 robotic kits based on Arduino (ZUM kit), a 3D Witbox 2 printer and a PLA coil.

This project will be presented to the Reto Tech Endesa Foundation Festival, where several prizes will be awarded to the teams that present the best projects.
