We are extremely pleased and grateful that Christiaan Huygens College Rachmaninowlaan in Eindhoven has agreed to cooperate with us in the ROILA project. Children from third grade (14-15 years old) will be learning ROILA and using it to play games with LEGO robots.  This activity will be part of their Science Class and we expect the ROILA learning to last for 3-4 weeks with a final one week used for the evaluation and game play. As a token of appreciation we will be donating LEGO Mindstorms NXT kits to the school.

We are extremely pleased to welcome two additional members to our team who will be helping us in this project. Hanneke Hooft van Huysduynen (Final Year Bachelor Student at Industrial Design, Eindhoven University of Technology) will be helping with the design of the game(s) and the execution of the study. Jerry Muelver (President of North American Ido Society, Inc) is assisting us by designing the ROILA lessons and lectures. We welcome his expertise with artificial languages and conlangs.

We will post updates and details as soon as they become available.

We are looking for potential participants for our upcoming evaluation of ROILA using LEGO NXT robots. Our user group is primarily children ranging from the ages of 12 and above up till roughly 15. They must be fluent in Dutch and/or English. Their involvement will comprise of two phases: a learning phase and the actual evaluation session. In the learning phase children would be expected to devote 20 hours to ROILA education and once they would be completely skilled they would bring the language in practice in an evaluation session with a LEGO robot somewhere in the summers, we hope to finalize a date soon. We aim to reward all our participants with a significant token of appreciation.

Feel free to contact us if you might know a school or anyone else that would be interested or even if you just want to try out ROILA.
