Robotics Education in Primary Schools: a Tasmanian Case Robotics Education in Primary Schools: a Tasmanian Case HOT

This paper presents a Tasmanian case of robotics program in primary schools. We try to address 3 fundamental issues in relation to running a successful robotics program. The first is the financial constraint of public schools which restrict them from accessing the robotics hardware and software. The second is the engineering skills of classroom teachers which contribute to the lack of confidence in running a robotics program in their teaching plan. The third is the cognitive ability of targeted students which require a more considered approach towards the delivery of the engineering concepts via robotics. Consequently, the research question we addressed was how to strategically roll out a robotics program so that it can engage more schools, teachers, parents and students with the ever evident problem of limited resources in our public schools.
