Description

Jacob Nielsen, Jørgen Larsen and their team at Teknologiskolen teach kids how to build their first robots. Jacob Nielsen is the President and co-founder of Teknologiskolen, a volunteer union offering technologically oriented spare time activities to kids. He holds a civil-engineering degree in Robot Engineering and a Phd in User-Configurable Modular Robotic Systems. Jørgen Christian Larsen, holding a PhD in Robotics, is the second co-founder of Teknologiskolen. They are both currently working as associate professors at the University of Southern Denmark. Together they instructs kids in how to design, build and code self-driving cars and robotic candy machines. Why should young children learn such high tech subjects? How do they gain entry into such a complicated topic? And what kind of robot would a kid make anyway?
