Abstract

In Malaysia, interest of public toward robotic teachings has increasing astonishingly in the last few years. In most of technology learning environment in traditional classroom, the ways of learning could be dull and lack of activities that involved the children. In this paper, we present a curriculum development for a robotic class for Malaysian gifted enrichment program. During the program, students explored the potential of using the LEGO® NXT Mindstorms set to instill engineering skills, computer programming, innovation and creativity among them. By using the NXT set which is affordable, motivational and effective teaching material for robotic and programming, the three weeks program provided hands-on experience which gave the students the opportunity for creativity and sense of achievement. It has been proved that during our program, the students had upgraded their sense of creativity by developing various types of robot with the versatility of LEGO® NXT Mindstorms.
