Abstract

This paper introduces a novel STEM-integrated robotics curriculum that aligns with relevant curriculum standards in science and mathematics. Using a scenario-based learning environment, the curriculum engages students in applying the engineering design process, scientific inquiry, mathematical thinking, and computational thinking through robotics. Thus, computer programming is taught in a meaningful context where students must initialize and adapt a program to solve a given problem. This paper presents a theoretical framework for the STEM-integrated robotics curriculum, a process of developing the curriculum, and learning activities organized to promote intended thinking skills.
