Kokori - A videogame on Molecular Biology
Kokori es un videojuego 3D de estrategia en tiempo real sobre biología molecular, desarrollado por un grupo de académicos de la Universidad Santo Tomás en Chile. Su objetivo es resolver problemas o daños que se presenten en una célula animal. Para esto contarás con pequeñísimos robots, más conocidos como nanobots, los cuales han sido diseñados y construidos para poder navegar al interior de una célula y realizar distintas funciones de reconstrucción, transporte, reparación y rescate. El jugador dispondrá de siete misiones, en la primera aprenderá a reconocer el nuevo entorno y comandar uno de nuestros nanobots, y en las siguientes misiones se enfrentará a más dificultades, pero algunos científicos irán guiandole y entregando las herramientas necesarias para que logre todos sus objetivos y salvar las células.

The main objective of the EU project E-Motion is to improve learning of pupils by introducing a course at school of the latest musical technologies (computer - music), to improve, as a consequence, their scientific and general knowledge and, as a result, to reduce school drop out.
The creation of a social network of digital music let the students be in touch and express their ideas about what they are learning and musical tracks they are composing.
The innovative use of ICTs in music make the youngsters cope also with maths, physics and informatics, which are of diverse complexity. The participation in the E-Motion approach require they learn other subjects i.e. history and geography, face social and political issues of other Countries and meet diverse cultures.
Robot@School was a project funded by the Italian Ministry of Education for the years 2005/2006 with the aim of building a national network of schools involved in educational robotics. It was managed by the School of Robotics which has continued to support the project. The project now involves almost 100 Italian schools which all are connected through the Robot@School platform.
The project team argue that learning about robotics is important not only for those students who want to become robotics engineers and scientists, but for every student, because it provides a strong method of reasoning and a powerful tool for grappling with the world.
Images and videos of the robots created by pupils are available on the project blog: http://blog.edidablog.it/blogs/index.php?blog=275.
Robot@Scuola era un progetto finanziato dal Ministero italiano della Pubblica Istruzione per gli anni 2005/2006 con l'obiettivo di costruire una rete nazionale di scuole coinvolte nella robotica educativa. È stato gestito dalla Scuola di Robotica, che ha continuato a sostenere il progetto. Il progetto coinvolge ormai quasi 100 scuole italiane, che sono tutte collegate attraverso la piattaforma Robot@Scuola.
Il team del progetto sostiene che conoscere la robotica è importante non solo per gli studenti che vogliano diventare ingegneri robotica e scienziati, ma per tutti gli studenti, in quanto fornisce un metodo di ragionamento forte e un potente strumento per affrontare il mondo.
Immagini e video dei robot creati dagli alunni sono disponibili sul blog del progetto: http://blog.edidablog.it/blogs/index.php?blog=275.
