Opening of the educational laboratory "Robotics and 3D Printing"
Today, on March 6, 2023, the grand opening of the laboratory "Robotics
and 3D Printing" took place at the Turan-Astana University on the basis of
the Department of Information Technology.
The Rector of the University Professor Dzhaparova Gulzhamal Alkenovna
addressed the audience with a welcoming speech. In her words, she noted
that the university will continue to develop IT - education, in which scientific
and technical problems will be studied in the context of real life,
contributing to the development of competitiveness and competence of
future university graduates. She wished creative success to the staff of the
department and students in their endeavors.
The first Kazakh cosmonaut, doctor of technical sciences, professor T.O.
was specially invited to the opening of such a specific laboratory.
Aubakirov. He also advised the student youth to creative activity not only
within the walls of the laboratory, but also in the future.
Further, the teachers and students of the department demonstrated their
skills in working with Arduino platforms, with the Flashforge Guider 3 Plus
3D printer, with the Shining 3D 3D scanner and the Roqed Smart Panel 65
interactive Flat panel.
A fully equipped laboratory contains all the necessary tools and technical
training aids, such as:
- 3D printer - a device that uses a computer model to create and print a
three-dimensional object. These devices are able to recreate a real model
from a digital three-dimensional model.
- 3D scanner Shining 3D - a device that is used to create an accurate three-
dimensional model of an object in a digital file format. It can be used in
various fields of science, including engineering, medicine, design and
- Arduino KITS - training sets of components and instructions for creating
devices based on the Arduino platform. Arduino is a popular open platform
for creating interactive designs and prototypes through microcontroller
programming. These kits contain all the necessary components such as the
Arduino board, various sensors, LEDs, resistors, buttons and more. They
also include detailed instructions for assembling and programming the
device. The kits are used to build a variety of projects, including robots,
home automation systems, measuring instruments, and more. They are
ideal for building the skills of students who are just starting out in
electronics and programming, as well as for students and professionals who
want to create more complex projects. There are various Arduino kits in the
department, each designed for a specific level of experience and projects.
- The Roqed Smart Panel 65 interactive whiteboard is an electronic device
that allows you to create and interact with digital content using a touch
screen. It works like a regular whiteboard, but has additional features that
allow it to work with a computer, projector, or other devices. It allows
students to write, draw, scroll and change content on the screen using
special markers. The interactive whiteboard can also be used to control
other devices such as projectors, sound systems, or computers, making it
ideal for presentations or group work during class.
