Abstract

Computer related fields have recently seen a decrease in undergraduate enrollment. Many factors are likely contributing to this trend and may include such topics as student misconceptions, lack of preparatory curriculum, and access to curriculum and necessary associated software/hardware as students progress academically from grades K - 12. The OssaBEST 2011 program sought to develop a multifaceted approach to address these issues simultaneously using educational robots, specifically targeting middle and high school students. The program included the development of a teacher workshop to prepare local area educators to deliver computing concepts to their students and the development of educational modules for the delivery of the material to students. The program provided loan computers and robots to the teachers for student use and also provided continuing technical support.
