The partnership with ISTC-CNR The Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the National Research Council foresees research and experimentation projects based on a five-year agreement.
The collaboration will see, among other activities, a project on swarm theory through the execution of a university panel that provides, through the Thymio Collective Decision Challenge (TCDC), the implementation of an educational game that allows a group of children to deal with a thorny question: to make a collective decision, trying to accommodate one’s own preferences to those of others and minimizing the time available.
Through the TCDC we offer an educational experience that allows children to understand, through the game, the complex dynamics that are behind a collective decision, and that allows to demonstrate how relatively simple beings like bees can have complex decision-making behaviors.
