Abra teachers train on robotics
BANGUED, Abra – Twenty Abrenian public school teachers recently attended a two-day training for trainers on the fundamentals of robotics at the Calaba Elementary School in this town.
Organized by the Department of Science and Technology in cooperation with the Mechatronics and Robotics Society of the Philippines (MRSP), the training aims to teach the teachers with the fundamentals of robotics that will eventually be integrated in the education curriculum for students.
The workshop proper guided the teachers from the theoretical aspect leading to the familiarization of spare parts, operations, and basic assembly of robotics.
“Nakaka-excite itong training dahil bagong-bago lang sa akin ito. It’s a workshop that I have not yet experienced. Hopefully, available ang mga robot kits para masubukan din ng mga students,” said Cherry Taguines, teacher II at Rosalion Eduarte National High School.
This will further enhance the skills and knowledge of students on physics, electronics, and robotics, especially those who are planning to enroll in electronics-related and engineering courses, she added. – Christian Allister Tubadeza
