Abstract

Robotics is an area with enormous potential for education. It addresses computing, engineering, science and mathematics in exciting concrete ways and allows for genuine collaborative problem-solving experiences for students of all ages. There are a number of proprietary robotics kits available commercially and while these are attractive, they are also generally quite expensive.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
