AbstractThe HumanoidLab is a more than 5 year old activity aimed to use educational robots to approach students to our Research Centre. Different commercial educative humanoid platforms have been used to introduce students to different aspects of robotics using projects and offering guidance and assistance. About 40 students have performed small mechanics, electronics or programming projects that are used to improve the robots by adding features. Robotics competitions are used as a motivation tool. A two weeks course was started that has received 80 undergraduate students, and more than 100 secondary school students in a short version. The experience has been very positive for students and for the institution: some of these students have performed their scholar projects and research in robotics and continue enrolled in the robotics field, and some of them are currently in research groups at IRI.
