This IQP is aimed at constructing a virtual robotic simulator and then testing its effectiveness as a learning tool. After researching other simulators, the team developed a simulator called Lua Visual. To determine if Lua Visual could be used as learning tool, the team tested how both high school and college students reacted to the software. The results suggested that simulators like Lua Visual would be very useful for robotics education. Video of the simulator can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cG5vG_-0UYs
