Mechanical moving toys (Automata) also offer education, ways to explore arts and game based activities around the construction and understanding of Automata.
CLOHE will motivate primary children to use multidimensional, cognitive resources to achieve learning outcomes.
The CLOHE project outcomes will allow teachers and students to build their own Automata. The resources the project will produce will include everything that will allow a teacher to make automata with their students.
An online virtual museum will be created were students will be able to show their results to their peers.
Examples of the 100 videos showing how Automata work:
