Location and highlights
Yogyakarta (often "Jogja" for short) is a lively mix between contemporary and traditional Indonesian culture, making it one of the most interesting places in Java to explore. Taman Pintar is located next to the Palace of Yogyakarta, which is still headed by a sultan.
Located right in the centre of the city, making it a convenient place to experience everything downtown Jogja has on offer. Indonesia's most popular temples and archaeological sites such as the UNESCO world heritage site Borodbudur and Parambanan, are both located within a short bus trip from the city.
Students designed and delivered simple robotics training workshops for young Indonesians in the use of Edison robots and in the context of robotics in general.
|Engineering||Students worked collaboratively to deliver engaging educational workshops relating to robotics and programming for Indonesian students aged between 10 and 12 as part of Taman Pintar’s science, engineering and technology promotion activities.|
