Abstract

In this paper we will discuss the experience of using simple robotics projects to introduce first year students to engineering. The key learning objectives and tools used to implement them and the evaluation results will be detailed. Evaluation results show that robotics projects are effective in engaging the students and an effective active learning tool.
