On May 17-18, 2024, ABS-CBN Foundation’s educational arm, Programa Genio held Romblon’s first-ever robotics workshop for the 150 teachers in Odiongan, Romblon. The workshop, officially titled, “R.O.B.O.T.E.A.C.H. – Robotics Basics and Operations Training: Education and Advancement for Classroom Heroes” was conducted in partnership with the Schools Division of Romblon. 

The workshop aimed to equip teachers with the knowledge, values, and skills needed to become responsible and compassionate individuals. Teachers expressed excitement and gratitude for the innovative training, clamoring for a second wave of similar workshops. 

Participants were also introduced to Artificial Intelligence, exploring various AI tools that can be used in their teaching tasks. The teachers emphasized the importance of having robotics kits and materials for effective implementation in their respective schools. Hope is among them that future training sessions will provide these kits to ensure sustainability through continued collaboration and partnerships.
