Abstract

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education is essential to the development of Sub-Saharan Africa. Robotics in the High School education system is one of the best ways to get students interested in pursuing future education in a STEM field. This project involved developing an open and free robotics course that incorporates videos, sample problems, surveys, labs, and quizzes to help developing countries teach robotics. During the IQP our current modules were tested with both Sub-Saharan African teachers and United States High School students. In addition to the course, a low cost robotics kit was designed and built.
