Outcomes based assessment has shown that introducing a platform for learning™ based on a robot referred to as TekBots™ into the first two electrical and computer engineering (ECE) courses enhances students' sense of community, innovation capabilities, and troubleshooting skills. At Oregon State University, Corvallis, ECE students enhance their fundamental understanding of ECE concepts as they construct and build upon their individual robot (TekBots). They experience first-hand the fun associated with engineering while gaining a sense of accomplishment. This platform will eventually extend through the four-year curriculum so that, rather than a single point project, the robot serves as a platform that connects and integrates the content from course to course.
