Research output: Contribution to Book/Report typesChapter

Abstract

This poster considers the first six months experience of using Mindstorm (LEGO, Denmark) robot kits to teach problem-solving. Robots were used as necessary foundation studies prior to teaching the syntax of a programming language (Java). Results of students’ response to this approach are presented together with suggestions for future developments of this method.
