This programme is a Rai Ragazzi tv production in cooperation with CRITS (Centro Ricerche Innovazione Tecnologica e Sperimentazione RAI),
Aired on RAI GULP (canale 42 - DTT) and on web platform RaiPlay
(watch all first season episodes here: https://www.raiplay.it/programmi/rob-o-cod/)
ROB-O-COD is the first Italian TV game show about coding, which turns coding into a challenge. This second season aims to foster coding and robotics by showing robot running on a field of play, programmed by young pilots - called - ROBOCODER- who come from Italian secondary schools of first grade ( aged 12- 14).
On a four step tournament, our 16 teams, played on themed field whose setting were inspired by fantasy , medieval, sci.fi or horror taste. Only the 4 teams, who scored the best results, took part in the spectacular finals.
Our players/Robocoder will code by using strategic thinking and block coding strings to make the robots overwhelm the field difficulties.
Practical knowledge and experience on coding can be gained through training at home or at school since being a kid.
In our TV studio we have two techno-hosts who take care of our Robocoder: Zero (Matteo Sintucci) and cybernetic Uno (Silvia Lavarini). Their names are a clear reference to the binary system.
If you want to try yourself how it feels to become a ROBOCODER, you can join us at our workshop at MAKER FAIRE
WORKSHOP LABORATORI ROB-O-COD
Boys and girls aged 9-14
Max.16 people allowed per session.
Our workshop includes:
• Introduction to programming: discover how to program robot in brief, and become able to play by you and take the challenge.
• Take the chance of coding: logic, computational thinking, and strategies. Try all you can think of! Make your robot win.
• Finally... go and play! Your team and your robot will deal with your challengers on the field!
So switch on your mind and remember: Rob-o-Cod è tutto un programma! Rob-o-Cod: All is coding.
