“Getting children excited about technical fields is our first goal of the Pilsen innovation ecosystem PINE. That is why the Robotics Center stands at its beginning. Experienced lecturers are able to educate pupils in a fun and playful way and interest even the smallest ones. For that reason too, workshops, clubs or suburban camps at the Robotics Center are still very popular,” said the Pilsen city councilor for the area of ​​Smart Cities and business support Daniel Kos.

How the π Day event wentthe director of the Robotics Center revealed Martina Jedličková: “Each workshop was connected to the number π or to Ludolf as a personality, and they all touched on the natural sciences. Somewhere the children animated Ludolf, elsewhere they went on an adventure to the land of Pi. They always worked with modern technologies – they programmed, for example, Lego buildings or the micro:konev automatic watering system, worked with Ozobot robots, created in Photoshop or learned to animate.”


In addition to the fact that the Pilsen innovation ecosystem PINE aims to interest elementary school students in technology and natural sciences, it has a number of other missions. For example, high school students are taught to work together across disciplines, take up life’s challenges and get a peek into the world of business. He can turn them into startups and innovators. Anyone who really wants to start a business will get background, community inspiration and expert mentoring in Pilsen. The PINE ecosystem can provide financing for innovations in companies and help them expand abroad. The main carriers of knowledge and tools, namely the Robotics Center, SIT Drones, SIT Port and BIC Plzeň, participate in these activities in individual phases.
