Under the auspices of the Ministry of Higher and secondary specialized education of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the US Embassy in Uzbekistan, Curt Schurgers from the University of California visited the Andijan Machine Building Institute as part of the Fulbright program. The main purpose of the visit was to provide special seminars and workshops for the professors and teachers of the Andijan Machine Building Institute by professor Curt Schurgers. This seminar was devoted to the methods of teaching robotics, and included discussion on introducing new technologies in robotics.
In the second part of the visit, a workshop on Robotics and Arduino was held for students of the Andijan Machine Building institute headed by professor Curt Schurgers. At this workshop, students of the institute prepared programs for the Arduino platforms and prepared various projects. The desire for students to learn and the profound experience of professor Curt’s work in the field provided a meaningful demonstration of this workshop.
