Thinklab is happy to collaborate with PRIMES Learning Company and came up with an amazing tool that helps introduce highschool students to the wonderful world of robotics. Students will get the best foundation in basic electronics, programming and microcontrollers so later on, they can create their own robotics projects. A basic robotics kit can also be purchased along with the workbook for fun hands on activities and exercises.

Learn, create, invent and innovate. Have an awesome learning experience with Thinklab!

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,200 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

“In behalf of my groupmates , I would Like to say Thank You for helping us ! Masasabi ko po na kayo po ung naging foundation namin sa paggawa ng design project namin. Kung wala po kayo walang mag-guguide samin at magbibigay ng mga ideas na kailangan namin sa paggawa nito. Salamat po kasi naging successful po ang lahat + naging BEST DESIGN PROJECT pa design namin ng dahil sa tulong niyo:) “
