Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Robotics needs to be made simple to understand in order to serve as a direct introduction to programming. In this paper, we propose the Edu-Rover (an unmanned vehicle system) for teaching robotics, and other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) related subjects.

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this project is to expose students to the applications of the theoretical knowledge learned in STEM subjects.

METHODS: To determine the applicability of our apparatus, we conducted workshops in schools. These include the collection of questionnaire data from students and teachers to evaluate its pedagogical significance.

RESULTS: Results show that our Edu-Rover is useful for teaching STEM subjects and concepts in schools.

CONCLUSION: Thus, we hope that this would stimulate creativity and cognitive abilities among students, especially in developing countries like Nigeria, in robotics and other STEM related subjects.
