PLOCAN participated with the EDUROVs Marine Robotics Educational Initiative in the Mini Fair of Gran Canaria, which is included in the Science & Innovations Weeks 2019 in the Canary Islands, which are organised by the Canarian Agency for Research, Innovation and Information Society (ACIISI) of the Government of the Canary Islands. The event took place between 13th and 15th November in the Parque Santa Catalina (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria). The educational centres and associations that attended to the Mini Fair were able to participate in the Marine Robotics Workshops of PLOCAN.

The EDUROVs Marine Robotics Educational Initiative, led by the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN) proposes the construction of programmable marine robots in several areas for educational purposes, from low cost tools, with free hardware and software, with the aim of stimulating young people’s vocations towards technical disciplines in order to awaken motivation and interest in science and technology and in the knowledge of the ocean.
