Robotics Programming in Myanmar

For a week, our students are running workshops on robotics programming at 2 universities in Myanmar.  Dagon University and University of Computer Studies Yangon.  The attending students are mostly undergraduate students, with some masters students and young teachers, in computer-related fields.  

The study of computer science here tend to be more theoretical than practical.  Hence the students, even the more senior ones, find robotics programming challenging.  They have to deal with motors, sensors, control signals, strategies, …  Our students, most of them first time teachers, are doing fine.  They are learning a lot from each other.  It is a great project.  

Towards the end of the week, there will be a competition at each university among the different groups.  It should be fun.  Too bad I cannot be there to see it.  On my way to join the Cambodia team.
