The ReSTELA project starting

Today we took part of the Zoom kick-off meeting of the ReSTELA (Remote STEM Labs) ERASMUS+ project which aims to develop a new ecosystem for (especially rural) teachers for teaching robotics. The three-year project brings together ECECT (lead partner, Cyprus), Scuola di Robotica (Italy) and Tallinn University of Technology.

Janika and Kaido introduced our university and lab as well as discussed several matters regarding the project with other partners.

PYNT community kick-off meeting

We hosted the PYNT (Present Yet Not There) community kick-off meeting on June 16. PYNT is an emerging community of practice involving researchers and educators interested in various applications of telepresence robotics in education (e.g. allowing greater participation for students who cannot attend due to health or other issues).
