We are developing a curriculum for the Introduction to Computer Science (CS1) course taught at two and four year colleges and for high school Computer Science courses. These courses will use robots as interactive tools to highlight concepts and motivate students. We have developed a robot platform and Java-based software environment to allow students to quickly and easily start programming robots and are currently testing robots and associated curricular materials at two community colleges.
