DIY workshop 2020

Under the prevailing hygiene rules, from 5 to 9 October, the fourth RoboCup self-build workshop took place. Very shortly before. Two weeks later, it should have taken place online.

So it was a mixed workshop: Instead of sawing-drilling-screwing-soldering-tinkering, there was a kit that could have been assembled at home. In addition, a first video was shown, so that the lecturer, Andreas Scheel, could first turn to the old hands, while the front rows were busy assembling. The students had access via their PCs to the instructional video, which had been filmed especially for this purpose. All of them, equipped with headsets, were able to assemble their vehicles at their own pace.

Some of the students explicitly mentioned the independent work as a very positive aspect of the workshop. The video can therefore not only be used at home, online, but is also very suitable for teaching.

The theory units were introduced by watching a video of the whole tutorial. This should introduce the topic and also show complex contexts. Here, too, it was possible to work autonomously: pause the video to view the graphics in more detail, repeat parts to make sure I understood everything.

Afterwards, upcoming questions were discussed with the students and the material was deepened.
