2016 International Conference on Computer Applications inIndustry and Engineering

ABSTRACT


To retain students in the STEM fields, many universities have developed apprenticeship training programs using robotics. The inherent design challenges in building robots provide a context whereby the applied science and the knowledge from relevant courses is seamlessly integrated to solve the problem at hand while gaining interpersonal and critical thinking skills that can be transferred to professional activities following graduation. The Undergraduate Research and Experiments in Robotics-based Accomplishments for STEM education (URERAS) project has developed and implemented. The goal of this project has been accomplished through four specific objectives; (1) foster undergraduate research in robotics; (2) promote peer-to-peer learning in team-based, handson experiments; (3) develop and implement a new robotics curriculum; and (4) apply the principles of robotics design as a means of increasing the awareness of STEM careers.
