Introducing robotics education to the classroom

Ian Maud

Robotics lends itself to the applied, real-life problems found in project-based tasks. It allows self-directed, challenge-based learning rather than simply absorbing and regurgitating facts. Many traditional topics can be taught by 'stealth' using robotics. There are no winners or losers in this type of learning: all groups have the opportunity to improve their designs and knowledge, and students will come to appreciate there is no single 'right' solution to many problems.
