Poppy Station Trainings and Workshops

Poppy Station members developed activities and training around opensource robots and artificial intelligence for between 1 and 5 days (7 to 35 hours). They are intended for beginners with little or no experience in computer programming, regardless of age, children or adults.

The courses cover the following topics and each include a hands-on activity and a thematic challenge:

  • Visual programming on the Thymio II robot. The challenge: “Autonomous Navigation”
  • Visual programming on the Ergo Jr. robot The challenges: “Poppy makes her chameleon” and “The upheaval-all”
  • Python programming on the Ergo Jr. robot The challenge: “The doll that does yes and no”
  • Artificial intelligence by neural networks with Keras in Python. The challenge: “Can Poppy read the handwriting?”

In order to provide these trainings outside the association, Popy Station has mandated the trainers below to intervene on request.

Do you need practical workshop training? We operate on your premises according to your scheduling constraints, public, and provide the robotic equipment necessary to conduct the training. You can apply via the form at the bottom of the page.
