Open and Portable Education uNits as TEAching and LEArning Factories

About the project

We design and deploy open-source and portable teaching and learning kits to empower pupils and teachers to engage in education about manufacturing and technology.

Purpose of the project

Early-stage easy access to advanced technology with high-quality learning materials helps give pupils continued interest in pursuing careers in manufacturing.

Societal impact

We enable access to high-quality robotics education for pupils and teachers, to impact Europe’s next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs.

Main results & insights

  • Open Source and Portable Teaching and Learning Factories for supporting robotics education on all levels.
  • Creation of an international community for open-source educational technologies.

Quote from the Activity Leader

We seek to inspire the next generation of innovation leaders in Europe by creating accessible open-source educational technology and demystifying topics generally considered ‘hard’.
