Our Next Generation of Robotics Researchers? Teaching Robotics at Primary School Level.

  • In this paper, we present our experience in designing and teaching of our first robotics course for students at primary school level. The course was carried out over a comparatively short period of time, namely 6 weeks, 2 hours per week. In contrast to many other projects, we use robots that researchers used to conduct their research and discuss problems faced by these researchers. Thus, this is not a behavioural study but a hands-on learning experience for the students. The aim is to highlight the development of autonomous robots and artificial intelligence as well as to promote science and robotics in schools.
