Looking to add some new ideas to your robotics program? In this session we will share how we use Lego NXT and EV3 robots to combine computer science and art! Using Artbotics, we wish to broaden participation in computing not only by reaching out to women and minorities, but by also reaching out to all students who have never considered trying computer science before. We believe that the use of art as a project medium will garner the interest of students who might be reluctant to try a course that focuses solely on robotics.
