Ushering K12 in engineering education is of little importance and rarely put into practice in Taiwan. The research intended to emphasize robotics is an excellent tool for teaching science and engineering, and it is a compelling topic for students of all ages. This study applied PBL Activities to guide students to learn Robotics Course through Hands-on activities, and took one step ahead to examine the perception of engineering education from the perspectives of female students.
The design of questionnaire will directly affect students’ learning outcomes of Problem-based Learning (PBL). Therefore, how to set up the questionnaire is a key factor in Problem-based Learning (PBL). This study applied LEGO Mindstorms as the teaching tool of Robotics Course. Students were divided into several groups and solved the problems by Hands-on. Hopefully, this course would equip students with problem-solving ability, Hands-on ability, and the literacy of technology science level.
This study was the second stage of the three-year research project supported by National Science Council of Taiwan. After twelve-week experiment classes, we interviewed students in depth and collected their evaluation and questionnaires. Through data analysis, we found that: (1) 81.35% students agreed” through this experiment classes she can have better understanding of Robot engineering.” (2)95.65% students were satisfied with this Robotics Course. (3) Students performed better in problem-solving, hands-on, and they learned more about technology as well. Thus, the course is proved to be feasible in senior high school.
