Němec R., Voborník P.Using Robotic Kits and 3D printers at Primary (Lower Secondary) Schools in the Czech Republic. International Journal of Education and Information Technologies, Volume 11, 2017, pp. 68-73. ISSN 2074-1316.


This article describes the results of the phone interviews across the Czech Republic at primary (lower secondary) schools focused on mapping the using robotic kits and 3D printers. The article contains the second part. The design and development of robotic hand. The robot hand will be first designed by means of the CAD system and then printed out by a 3D printer. Arduino and 3D printers will be used on the construction. The Arduino platform, which will control small electronics (servo motors) and mechanics parts (printed by the 3D printer). The article presents a robotic hand design using the Adobe Inventor CAD system. The results of the phone interview present that schools possess minimum robotic construction kits and 3D printers. However, if school have 3D printer they used to create their own robots or replacing parts for robotics.
