Robots in the classroom is a proposal of artistic-educational intervention. Through a scenic piece based on the technique of theater-forum, it seeks to carry out a work of dissemination of scientific thinking by introducing basic elements of robotics and technology. Its main objective is to bring robotics to children and adolescents with low or no accessibility to this discipline through the crossing between science and art. This will be achieved by conducting an interdepartmental tour of public education centers that are part of UNESCO's Associated Schools Plan Network (RedPEA) in Uruguay.
