This thesis summarizes our contribution to science and technology education by developing a novel robotic toolkit (EmbedIT). Our aim was to enable students to explore in an easy and fun way interdisciplinary topics such as biologically inspired robotics, embodied artificial intelligence, electronics, computer science, neuroscience, psychology, arts etc. The need for a new toolkit emerged based on our experiences in teaching robotics to students with different backgrounds. The current commercially available robotic kits did not fully meet our needs. Therefore, we proposed a new design approach which includes modularity, compatibility with other toolkits, compliance with industrial standards, distributed control, versatility, and open-source licensing. We emphasized a practical approach closely related to the target audience: the secondary school students. We designed a number of example exercises using EmbedIT which train a variety of skills that young people need for a successful professional life. These exercises were conducted in real class environments with a large number of students. We addressed a number of research questions on the conceptual, technical, and practical level in the context of this thesis. Pedagogues, engineers as well as teachers benefit from the insights gained, the tools developed, and the example exercises designed. This work further contributes to educational robotics research and to the dissemination of biologically inspired robotics and embodied artificial intelligence. We are sharing EmbedIT with members of the open-source community who may customize the platform to their own needs and contribute to exploit the toolkit’s full potential.
