Robotics is a fast-growing field of IT, and teaching it is a major challenge for public education. This is also the case in Hungary, where more and more schools have robotics kits, but teachers often lack the time and expertise to use them. However, dedicated experts are now organising more workshops and competitions, joining international communities such as RoboCup and WRO . The John von Neumann Society’s (NJSzT) Robotics Division special interest group is the organiser of the Hungarian qualifying round of RoboCupJunior, the 15th annual Hungarian Youth Robot Cup and the organiser of the regional competition of RoboCup.
During the online forum “Robots in Competition!” in September, which was followed live by many interested people, mostly teachers – activists of “the teaching with robot” presented methodological advice and showed concrete examples as well as shared the calendar of a huge number of events of different Hungarian robotics competitions. NJSzT is also keen to contribute to the exchange of best practices in robotics education in various European countries represented by CEPIS.
