In the rural area of Ipotesti, children dream of learning more about programming and robots. They won national and international competitions, and a grand prize has even brought them 14 LEGO WE Do kits. These kits allow them to explore their creativity by building robots and making coding a reality for elementary kids.
However, the Robotics class has a single, old laptop that the children use by taking turns and just three tablets on which they can program the things they build. The children wait their turn because they can’t imagine how things could be different. But their teacher knows and wants to offer them more.
Can a teacher change lives?
Professor Daniela Lungoci is more than the various titles and awards she has received. In 2020, she was named Education Creator in the homonymous Ministry of Education program. In 2021, she became a Certified Member of the STEM Career Adviser Network – STE(A)M IT.
But most importantly, she managed to pass on her love for learning, science, and technology to the middle schoolers who now are excited about subjects such as robotics and software development. The clear, curious eyes who follow her every move during class stand testament to her significant impact.
