A Heated Battle Between Crappy, But Lovable Robots
13:00- 14.2.2020 ISO OMENA LIBRARY STAGE
Hebocon is a crappy robot tournament for anyone who do not have the actual technical skills to build robots. Or for those who want a challenge. Each robot is fueled by the imagination of their creators as well as their skills to use a glue gun. The tournament challenges mostly non-skilled robot makers to build outrageous machines and compete for the title of the Most Crappy Robot. Hebocon originally started in Japan.
Hebocon robots are nothing you would imagine robots would be. They break, they forfeit and sometimes they don’t even move. But who cares when they are so adorable?
Battle between the Hebocon robots is always full of twists. The robots roam off the ring by themselves, or fall apart even before entering the competition. Hebocon Robots fight for the right to fail!
Who said you have to be an engineer to build a robot? Anyone can make a crappy one! All you need is your own imagination, 30 minutes, little bit of trash, batteries and some glue!

This workshop is part of a European research and innovation project on science learning outside the classroom (SySTEM 2020), and it is organized by researchers from the Learning Environments research group (Aalto University), in collaboration with the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (YCAM).
About System 2020
SySTEM 2020 is a European-wide study into Science Learning Outside the Classroom, which examines how young people learn across Europe. SySTEM 2020 aims to map the diversity of initiatives connected to science education in informal contexts, identify best practices, as well as provide tools to support science learning outside the classroom. An area of special interest in SySTEM 2020 deals with how to support inclusion and equity in science education. To this end, special attention is paid to minority groups in science and STEM education like for instance, young people at risk of social exclusion who might not be involved in education nor employment.
