Their Arpa Laser project aims to help children learn English through music

After competing against more than a hundred teams, a group of students from a high school of the Autonomous University of the State of Hidalgo (UAEH) will represent Mexico in the Robofest World Championship, which will take place next May in the United States.

The high school students won first place at the Latin American edition of the competition in the Roboarts senior category with the Arpa Laser project, which aims to help children between three and five years of age in learning English through music.

The team called "Visual Music Z" is made up of Alejandro Mendoza Rojas and Alejandro Pacheco Navia, from second semester, as well as Tomás Alejandro Avilés Ortega, Damián Jiménez, and Harold Cruz Ramírez, sixth semester. The team received guidance from some academic members of the institution.

During the competition in Latin America, organized by the UAEH, the young students faced teams from other states of the country, as well as from other nations such as Ecuador and Venezuela.

Arpa Laser features a light sensor that detects the variation of intensity and sends the signal to a hardware, where it is interpreted to emit a sound.

The project uses musical notes and is very similar to a keyboard, but with laser linked by means of Bluetooth to an application that the students themselves designed.

The UAEH reported in a statement that students of their high school 3 will also participate in the Robofest World Cup, having won fourth place in the bottlesumo, in which 22 groups from different countries participated.

The Robofest World Cup will take place from May 15 to 22, in Michigan, United States.
