In 2018, RTW began developing its work plan for the next years to increase girls and women in STEM education and employment in its target countries through technology capacity building. As a first step, RTW started to work with partners locally to give workshops on robotics, programing and human rights. In 2018, RTW co-organized workshops, helping to recruit and train female coaches in the Geneva area. In 2018, RTW officially joined the PoppyStation educational robotics network, which emerged from INRIA labs and is based in France.
