  • •The E.Do Learning Center is an educational environment for students and teachers that uses the E.Do robot to explore STEM subjects, coding, robotics, and to spread a new working culture
  • •By bringing robotics beyond industry and into a didactical setting, Comau’s hands-on E.Do platform makes learning fun and engaging
  • •Primary, secondary and technical schools can freely access the experience at IIS “Fermo Corni” of Modena, an Institute of Higher Education and a Secondary School

 

Comau has developed the advanced technologies and training solutions for the educational project “E.Do Learning Center”, promoted by Ferrari consistently with its ongoing support of the local territory. The Center opens recently in the Istituto Istruzione Superiore (IIS) “Fermo Corni” of Modena (Italy), an Institute of Higher Education and a Secondary School. The initiative, which highlights the increasing importance of bringing robotics from the factory to an increasing number of new sectors, provides students with a unique learning environment that is both fun and engaging. It is also an important tool to teach skills that can be used for future jobs.

The inaugural event was attended by Benedetto Vigna, CEO of Ferrari, along with Stefano Bonaccini, President of the Emilia-Romagna Region, Gian Domenico Tomei, President of the Province and Gian Carlo Muzzarelli, Mayor of Modena. The corporate, institutional and academic representatives were able to experience the potential of the E.Do Learning Center firsthand during a demonstration led by Comau trainers.

Part of Comau Academy’s innovative educational platform – known as E.Do Experience – the E.Do Learning Center is a novel and hands-on concept that provides teaching materials and tools to help 8 to 19-year-olds explore robotics, coding, STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) with the support of Comau’s E.Do robot. Soft skills and work culture are also taught as part of the rich educational path.

The initiative aims to create an innovative environment for young people with an educational background focused on new technologies and innovative solutions. It is designed to inspire a culture of technology in schools throughout the Province of Modena, stimulate curiosity and interest, and help students develop the skills they need to enter the labor market in a new and highly effective way.

The E.Do Learning Center is an innovative educational platform consisting of 5 E.Do, 6- axis robots complete with all the necessary materials and accessories, thus allowing school students to enhance their knowledge of STEM subjects through the use of robotics. A full set of teaching materials is also included, with each Training Package revolving around the concept of teamwork. Students, divided in groups, program their e.DO robot to solve challenging tasks related to working scenarios. Indeed, the exercises are simulations of real cases and immersed in work metaphors, such as a construction site or start-up venture.

“This important initiative, which has been carried out with such a prestigious Company as Ferrari, is proof of Comau’s dedication to creating social value for the local territory and designing advanced robotics solutions for new sectors,” explained Pietro Gorlier, Comau CEO. “The E.Do Learning Center is the ideal tool to engage and stimulate new generations to develop innovative skills, both technical and personal, which are increasingly necessary within today’s study paths and the ever-changing world of work. Commitment to developing cutting-edge technologies is one of the foundations of this educational project, and a fundamental part of Comau’s DNA.”

According to Ezio Fregnan, Comau Academy and Business Education Director, the interactive approach is proving to be highly successful. “The E.Do Learning Center is a key part of giving students the opportunity to experience hands-on learning from a 6-axis robot with the help of an expert trainer, and in doing so, allow them to build a solid foundation in STEM and entry-level robotics. It reflects Comau Academy’s commitment to anticipating future training needs and developing innovative and stimulating educational projects for the future generation of young talents.”
