:: Introduction

Robotics is a growing area in the last decades, changing where it is
applied. It was more present in the industrial environment but is now
expanding itself to many others locations, such as home, offices and
outdoors. Another relevant change is where robotics is introduced in
education. It started as a University and Technical College subject but
it’s now widely adopted in many High-Schools all over the world, some
as an extracurricular activity and others as a support to STE(A)M
Education. With the increase in the robotics education interest, many
competitions started worldwide, as a tool to motivate the students and
teach them while having fun. One of the key examples of that is
RoboCupJunior. With the integration of automatic devices in many aspects
of the daily life, the robotics related jobs are quickly increasing. In
this special Session we intend to focus on the interaction between
teachers, students and public when using Robotics platforms for
education
