CMST OZOtown25 oct. 2021
Pupils from Sliač once again made their school and city a good name in Europe. Our school has received an award from the European Commission for our activities during the International Programming Week - CODE WEEK 2021. Pupils of 2.B with the help of 3rd and 5th graders under the guidance of IT teachers have invented a unique waste sorting system in a model town. They programmed the robots (ozobot bit) into intelligent rubbish bins. When the bins are full, they go to a particular landfills – e.g. plastic, metal, biowaste, paper. When the separated waste is handed over there, they return home completely empty.
The unique thing is that the subject of the project came from the students themselves. They were worried that the waste often ended up in incinerators due to imperfect sorting. Another great moment of the project was the cooperation of different age students – peer learning. 2nd, 3rd, 5th grade students created the first part of the code "waste robots" during the science and IT lessons and their cooperation ultimately works very compactly. In addition to coding, we also used cross-curricular activity – the artistic design of the town (from waste materials, of course :) and the pride of our school - 3D printing – thanks to it our ozobots turned into colorful "dumps of the future".
This project was praised by the European Commission not only for its imaginative code solution or strong environmental potential, but also for its cooperation with schools abroad - our Erasmus + partner schools. We decided to use Codeweek 2021 technology to help the environment.
