      Students were very interested in all examples and demonstrations. They participated in some of them.

      I tried to explain all the mentioned concepts, and in spite of the complexity they understood pretty well

      And I also introduced other robots like the one is in the photo with 4 ultra sound sensors, or an robotic arm with 6 movements.
