INBOTS Workshop with Teachers in Athens: the Uptake of Robotics in Education

In the frame of the INBOTS project and the European Robotics Week 2018, a workshop on the uptake of Robotics in education was organized by EDUMOTIVA. The workshop took place on December 1, 2018 at EDUMOTIVA premises in Athens, where teachers engaged in educational robotics were invited to present and discuss their experiences. Read a summary report

INBOTS project – Survey on Robotics in education

Learning robotics is nowadays no more limited to engineering and technical studies.

Robots are spreading outside factories, in everyday life, and this requires that a much wider part of the society becomes aware of how robots are made and can be controlled. In this respect, education plays a fundamental role and INBOTS is compromised with it with a team working on the promotion of highly-accesible and multidisciplinary education programs related to Interactive Robotics.

To ensure that all the remarkable issues are attached, INBOTS presents three surveys to identify what are the available educational initiatives for teaching robotics to people with different backgrounds, from school and University students to teachers, workers, and experts in non-engineering fields.

The results of the questionnaires will help to develop adequate strategies and teaching material to fulfill possible gaps and to allow the spread of the knowledge of robotics at different levels in the society.

European Robotics Week 2018: invitation for teachers-workshop on the uptake of robotics in education

European Robotics Week 2018

Celebrating the European robotic week 2018, EDUMOTIVA invites teachers experineced or interested in educational robotics to participate in a workshop/discussion on “the uptake of robotics in education: drivers and barriers” . During this workshop, EDUMOTIVA team and teachers will present their own experiences about the introduction of robotics in education and in school curriculum and will identify drivers and barriers for the uptake of robotics in education.

Euroepan Robotics Week 2018: robotics labs for school kids

European Robotics Week 2018

EDUMOTIVA in cooperation with the Industrial Gas Museum/Technopolis City of Athens will provide two workshops  (of one hour each) for 50 students from local secondary schools in Athens. The students in small groups will play and interact with several educational robots appropriate for their age and using tangible programming.

The workshops are included in the celebrations of the European Robotics Week 2018.

when: November 21 & 30, 2018, 9.30-11.30 am

where: Technopolis City of Athens

Kick off meeting of INBOTS CSA project

On January 8th and 9th the Kick Off Meeting of INBOTS CSA project was held in Brussels. A consortium of more than 25 companies from 13 European countries, and headered by the Spanish CSIC, brings together the main stakeholders involved in interactive robotics among the member states to deliver future guidelines for the introduction and barrier overcoming in everyday life of European citizens focused on three main domains: healthcare, manufacturing and consumers. The project was funded by the European Commission under the ICT-28-2017 call and has a global budget close to 3 million euros for the next 3 coming years.

The project aims to overcoming the lack of a clear understanding and communication between the relevant actors, creating a Community Hub on interactive robotics. The members of this consortium, in collaboration with experts from several areas, will ensure the widest outreach of scientific application, training, standardisation, regulation, and dissemination activities concerning interactive robotics for the next three years.

During this meeting, Anne Bajart, head of Unit of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence at the European Commission, shared with the consortium the importance of Coordination and Support Actions for the European Commission in a way that strengthens the industry and boosts the economy. She also brought to the project consortium the role and responsibility of continuing the labour undertaken by previous projects such as euRobotics, ROCKEU2, RoboLaw or Wereable Robots.
