The TekBots program takes learning beyond theory, allowing students to apply their knowledge of electrical and computer engineering to create their own robot. As they progress through the program students add more functions to their TekBot.
In an introductory class, students build their own TekBots that navigates by sensors to detect obstacles. In a later assembly language class they modify their TekBot to be controlled remotely. Students are inspired by the creative possibilities of the TekBots and have created robots that can walk on four appendages, or balance on two wheels. The TekBot competition in May at the Engineering Expo is additional motivation for students to create something new.
