Since 2000, Scuola di Robotica (School of Robotics) is a non-profit cultural association whose aim is to promote the knowledge of the science of Robotics among students, teachers and the general public. It provides for the widest practicable and appropriate dissemination of information concerning the results of the R&D in the field of Robotics and of the complementary disciplines, namely Artificial Intelligence, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Psychology. The mission of “Scuola di Robotica” is to develop a chain of transmission between research laboratories, education, industry and society at large, because without an effective translation between the language of science and those of other disciplines, communication of science is incomplete. School of Robotics is part of dozens of projects, it is actively involved in the CodeWeek and it is a prestigious partner from Italy with high impact in terms of educational outcomes among schools.
