Costa Rica News – School children in Cartago created a technology capable of connecting to the Internet.
The 65 kids began a program on educational robotics and the Internet of Things in March and have already graduated.
They started with an alarm system, projects that automate functions in the home, and a car model that collects garbage. They even made a car that runs on solar energy and seawater.
The program takes place at Nuestra Señora de Fátima School. The initiative is financed by the Fun for Educational Projects of Garnier & Garnier and Zona Franca La Lima.
It’s for fourth, fifth and sixth grade students.
The children exercise a lot of skills and learn about technology, while playing and having fun.
This school won a contest for the financing based on its robotics proposal which included ideas from students wanting to change the world.
