Robotics Olympiads: A New Means to Facilitate Conceptualization of Knowledge Acquired in Robot Projects

Igor M. Verner, David Ahlgren, David Miller

This paper proposes theoretical robotics competitions, offered in conjunction with robot contests, as the framework to foster deep learning of concepts which underlie the practical projects and to facilitate the development of engineering aptitude. We present our experiences with integrating theoretical tests in the Trinity College Fire-Fighting Home Robot Contest and National Botball Tournament.
