9th Workshop of Robotics in Education (WRE 2018)

Robotics motivates and inspires people of all ages and education levels.

As so, the use of robotics in education has gained great interest over the last decade. The Workshop of Robotics in Education is a forum for discussing technical, educational, and other aspects about the usage of robotics in classroom.
