This project advanced the robotics club at the Harry Fultz Institute in Tirana, Albania by applying various teaching methods, including self-directed learning and group work. We worked alongside Professor Enxhi Jaupi and 6 teams of 5 high school students to understand, design, and construct robots to complete complex tasks. During this time, students were taught fundamental concepts of robotics, such as DC motors, computer-aided design (CAD), and programming. The biggest obstacle to project completion remained the long shipping time for parts. Two solutions proposed to address the long delay in part arrival are pre-selecting student projects or structuring the club around a final competition. The main future goal is to establish the school as the center of robotics in Albania.
