Robotics center inaugurated in Unexca de Chacao

They will serve students from the metropolitan axis of Miranda

The Bolivarian Government inaugurated the Mega Nucleus of Educational Robotics at the headquarters of the Experimental University of Greater Caracas (Unexca), located in Altamira, Miranda state.

The sectorial vice president of Science, Technology, Education and Health, Gabriela Jiménez Ramírez, participated in the activity, accompanied by the governor of the state of Miranda, Héctor Rodríguez; the vice minister of Research and Generation of Scientific Knowledge, Carmen Virginia Liendo; the president of the Infocentro Foundation, Luis La Rosa and academic authorities, reports a press release from the Mppcyt.

During her intervention, the Minister for Science and Technology also highlighted the importance of the exchange of knowledge between 11 and 12 year old boys and girls with university students.

“There is no greater intelligence than human intelligence worked from complementarity, from the community of knowledge and learning,” he stated.

The mega nucleus of Educational Robotics – which has areas of robot construction, practices, programming and electronics – served as a stage for the students of the Santo Tomás de Aquino school and Computer Engineering at Unexca to present their innovation projects and show to the authorities the process of programming and operation of various robot models.

“To the extent that we use other programming languages ​​in open standards, we have the opportunity to create open science. This first university nucleus marks a benchmark for the integration of the country's research centers with the IT PNF,” emphasized Minister Gabriela Jiménez Ramírez.

Science as a space for well-being

During the activity, Minister Gabriela Jiménez Ramírez stated that it was Commander Hugo Chávez and President Nicolás Maduro who were responsible for instilling in Venezuelans the conception that “science and technology are not only developed by scientists, not only by technicians such as "We, but also any fundamental actor in society, social movements, communes, fishermen's councils (...) in that space we have the opportunity to generate well-being."

He stated that “when we understand that science is a space for well-being, that science is the opportunity to recreate thought, we are then on the right path; Today this is a victory for President Nicolás Maduro over those who want to privatize education and over those who do not believe we are capable of creating science, of creating solutions.”

For his part, the governor of the state of Miranda, Héctor Rodríguez, pointed out that this Mega Robotics Nucleus is one of the six that are planned to be inaugurated in the state.

“The Los Teques Laboratory has already been inaugurated, which will serve the Altos Mirandinos and this nucleus that will serve the metropolitan area. It is a considerable investment that the National Government is making so that boys and girls, when they are developing and programming their robots, also feel that they are working for the next 100 years. Here there is hope, there is a future, here there is a desire to dream,” she pointed out.

Educational Robotics offers children and young people a fun way to learn and experiment with technology, stimulating their interest in these areas for their academic and practical growth.

The objective of these spaces is to awaken the study's interest in technology, programming, electronics, mechanics, design and construction, in order to guarantee the generation of change in the areas of science and technology.

The inauguration of this new Mega Robotics Center is part of the vertices of the Great Mission of Science, Technology and Innovation Dr. Humberto Fernández-Morán, which establishes the seeding and preservation of national scientific talent and the strengthening of spaces for research and the development.

Boys and girls from Miranda learn about the world of 3D printing and robotics

A total of 131 second and third grade boys and girls from the UEP “Colegio San José”, located in the Guaicapuro municipality, Miranda state, entered the world of 3D printing and robotics, through an interactive talk developed by the state Foundation for the Development of Science and Technology (Fundacite), an entity attached to the Ministry of Science and Technology (Mincyt).

In the talk titled “Robotics and 3D Printing”, the students explored the applications and potential of these branches of science.

With a presentation, the boys and girls learned about the three dimensions, the materials used and the variety of objects that can be created with these tools.

During the day, the children discovered how 3D printing is used to print everything from toys and masks to packaging, pots, furniture, prostheses and even car and home parts.

In addition, they learned about innovative projects such as printing houses.

The activity is part of the National Program “Scientific Seedbeds” of vertex one of the Great Mission of Science, Technology and Innovation “Doctor Humberto Fernández Morán”, which aims to awaken the interest of new generations in scientific and technological areas, promoting their creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills.
