Robotics has become a standard K-12 outreach tool and for attracting students to the STEM disciplines. Performing these activities in the class room usually requires substantial time commitment by the teacher and integration into the curriculum requires major effort, which makes spontaneous and short-term engagements difficult. This paper studies using “Cubelets”, a modular robotic construction kit, which requires virtually no setup time and allows substantial engagement and change of… Expand
