The RoboFISH Advanced Toolkit also called RoboFISH, is an innovative educational tool: a pisciform robot born to introduce marine and submarine robotics experiences with Educational Robotics and STEAM learning purposes.
RoboFISH is integrated into the FISH curriculum with three dedicated advanced topics: Marine Robotics Key Lessons.
The RoboFISH is based on the same technology as the RoboPisces Basic Toolkit. Therefore, approaching this tool’s programming is extremely easy if the first ten topics of the FISH curriculum have already been addressed.
The programming activity can be easily carried out through UIflow, a graphical programming environment (in blocks) and accessible via a browser. The ease and intuitiveness of using the blocks allow teachers and young students to readily embrace the world of programming.
Custom blocks have been developed and made available for accessible development functionalities of fishes.
For the more experienced and those looking for more complex challenges, the RoboFISH is programmable in various other programming languages such as MicroPython, C++ or via the Arduino IDE. All this makes the teaching potential of the kit highly adaptable to multiple age groups.
The Università Politecnica delle Marche developed the kit as an Intellectual Output of the RoboPisces project. It was distributed and validated in the partner schools. The kit is not a purchasable product but has stimulated new developments and implementations.
The complete version of the kit can be requested at the project coordinator (UNIVPM – firstname.lastname@example.org) or purchased through ANcybernetics s.r.l. (www.ancybernetics.it), which is a startup that deals with underwater and educational robotics, born within the framework of the European project RoboPisces.
