Modelled on Artists in Residence and Poets in Residence, Roboteers in Residence was a National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA) funded pilot project in which Expert Roboteers planned 30 one-day workshops in further education colleges across the UK. The aim of the project was to:

*Initiate a deeper interest and involvement in robotics among design and technology and
engineering students in the 14-18 age group
*Deliver a high-quality face to face learning opportunity for Techno Games robot builders

The evaluation was conducted by Professor Richard Kimbell of the Technology Education Research Unit (TERU) at Goldsmith College, University of London. It considers the issues that emerged in setting up the project, the impact on and attitudes of participating students and factors that helped or hindered the project.
