International Robotics Academy Workshop - Amman, Jordan

One of the organisations I work very closely with is the International Robotics Academy based in Amman, Jordan.  Over the last year I've been advising them on their workshop content and different ways to structure their lessons.  At the end of November / start of December I travelled to Amman to run some workshops with both their trainers and lead teachers from the schools they work with.  Along with a few in-school visits, we did an advanced NXT workshop as well as a 3 day EV3 workshop that went from absolute basics through to some quite advanced concepts.  All these workshops had an educational focus, as we are keen to see more and more robotics being adopted by the schools as part of their curriculum.

This is a quick video I put together that shows off some of the final day challenges the teachers were working on.
