Learning activity details

Firstly, we set a plan for our work and focused on Safety in lab for science and Mathematical physics; measurements and calculations in Math Secondly, we learned basic concepts of a Robot, its main moves and how to manage its control Then, we moved to a further step which was teaching some of excelled and liable students so as they would be Young Teachers and a guide for other students Furthermore, we carried out our experiments with small groups to focus; improve and develop Finally, we moved to bigger groups of our students and then whole class after minimizing the most common defects and gaining more experience
And of course, part of work was documenting our work starting from our first meeting to the last successful show passing through our own mistakes
