AMOR - Autonomuous Mobile Robot is a project (2017-2020) focusing on the students´ teams effective cooperation at home schools throughout the school years and during international short term students´ workshops in the Czech republic, Finland, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland. During the project, students´ teams with VET teachers support from participating VET organisations design and develop a robot. There will be five workshops realized during the project and totally 80 technical VET students´mobilities will be carried out in the workshops. Students are from 2nd and 3rd grade of their studies and project-based collaboration, peer-learning are a great challenge for them. This would enable development of personal professional and intercultural skills within relatively limited length of exchange. Participants will not only discuss and develop their project work connected with robot but they will also meet with real life in individual countries through discussions with other students not directly involved in the project, visits of cultural and sports events and sights. The final common products should be technical drawing, manual and an autonomous mobile robot suitable for movement in difficult terrain with sensors of CO, CO2 and other Gates, with thermocameras and movable arms that could take something, like a soil sample for later analysis and insert the sample into the robot's body. The process in the project is quite a long, but necessary to include all workshops and common work in practice. All partners are integrated on it. During the project totally 20 international technical VET teachers participate on consulting/monitoring/teaching, evaluation and peer-learning during workshop realizations.
As all the participating organizations are VET institutions with similar fields of study, they will stay in contact after the project is completed. They will find opportunities for new projects and cooperation either for students or for teachers because learning from mutual visiting, exchanging experiences and good practice is a good way how to improve knowledge and skills and develop intercultural understanding and gain new perspectives.
