To Mr Hariton Polatoglou, Mr Iraklis Varlamis, Mr Theodoros Karounos I would like to express my interest in the GSoC project “Development of a DIY robot kit for educators”. My name is Ioannis Manousaridis and I am a student at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I am currently doing my thesis and my main studies focus on the area of data science and machine learning. Despite the topic of my main studies though, there many reasons why I found this project appropriate for me. I have always been interested in robotics. I have used microcontrollers and microcomputers a lot in the past (raspberry pi B+ and zero, Arduino Uno, nano, Avr) and different technologies on them (Python, C, RIOT OS, FreeRTOS). My experience in this area has been built by different courses in the university, personal work and my volunteering work in a robotics team for one year. Also, I have helped in the organization of some robotics seminars for kids with the Mindstorms Lego Ev3 in the past, so I have a basic understanding of what students need in their first steps and more advanced steps in robotics. Furthermore, what excites me more is the 3D printing part. Recently, I bought my 3D printer (3 Ender Pro) and I work on it almost daily. I have already learnt basic stuff in some software for printing and designing (Cura, TinkerCad) and I find this project as an opportunity to learn more stuff. I have prepared a draft of my proposal which I will submit on Monday and I will be looking forward to your feedback. However, I would like to ask for some guidance about the project in advance. Is there a specific kind of robot that you are looking forward to? And also, what student ages will be the project targeting? Thanks in advance for your time and assistance. Kind regards, Ioannis Manousaridis
