Watch as he shares his passion for robots, particularly the ones that are easy to control. (in English) More to see: http://www.ez-robot.com/default.aspx

Robots: A Step in the Evolution of "Design with Purpose"
BY MICHAEL WIENEN
@ VOL 4
ON SEP 29, 2015
Michael Wienen states that, as an adjective, robotic has come to describe mundane repetition of actions completely void of creative thought. It's ironic that robots, actual robots, have inspired thousands of local youth to dive into the waters of creativity...swimming deeply and coming back for more. High-tech robotics programs have proven themselves locally as an effective educational lure. We'll see how "high technology" accounts for less of the lure than we thought and how applied creativity is the real reward these students are drawn to. This hypothesis is spawning a new generation of local educational programming.
