Abstract or Description

We present CSbots, an ongoing project to use robots as educational tools in the Introduction to Computer Science (CS1) course. Enrollments in Computer Science have dropped significantly, and part of the blame rests on an introductory course that has not kept pace with the progress of computational technology. We aim to use robotics to motivate students, provide a sense of relevance to the course work, and improve learning.
