Final Report - ROBERTA-EU (Roberta goes EU)

Project ID: 20778
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY


This is the final report of the ROBERTA-EU project, which aimed to address the lack of female engineers by raising girls' interest for technical professions. The Roberta course concept was especially tailored towards gender related issues, i.e. the didactic approach selects topics and experiments that are more interesting for girls.

The document briefly mentions the motivation behind the project, explains the methods used by Roberta in order to improve the girls' confidence in their technology skills and the effectiveness of their education process. It later describes how the project was organised (teacher selection and education, founding of research centres etc) and finally concludes with results and findings.

On the whole, the project course is reflected positively. The establishment of regional centres in the participating European countries and the Roberta courses conducted so far can be deemed a success. The Roberta teaching material has generally been judged positively.
