"The lectures were held for two groups, for children aged 11-15. Students aged 11-12 showed a special interest in robotics. I received their questions even before the lecture started, and each video was accompanied by a wave of comments and clarifications. Older students came up after the lecture with more specific questions about the design, programming of robots and studying for the master's program “Intelligent robotics” of the Higher Institute of ITIS.
