Track 3. A robot in the classroom


Robotics in Education tries to strengthen different skills for future engineers/scientists by the means of the design, construction and programming of robots. These skills are related to various fields like science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Also, and equally important, the introduction of the robot in the classroom, both at school and college and even as extracurricular activity, promotes a host of outcomes such as technological fluency, creativity, participation, support, collaboration and cooperation.

The purpose of this track is to bring together researchers, teachers and practitioners interested in the Robotics in Education. This track intends to emphasize the exchange of experiences, methodologies and materials to motivate students about science and technology.
