The project "Roberta - girls discover robots" uses the fascination of robots and their development to convey knowledge about engineering and computer science in an exciting way to pupils, in particular to female pupils.Before holding Roberta robot courses tutors are trained. Teaching materials were developed to support tutors. To assure attractiveness and quality of courses and materials both are evaluated by the University of Bremen. A national network of regional Roberta centres - one centre here in Magdeburg - is being established to support tutors locally, to ensure nation-wide exchange of experience, and to disseminate the results of the project.
