Abstract [en]

This report presents a thesis done at the programme Master of Science in Engineering and Education at KTH and SU. This project aims to create a laboratory work trying to inspire students for the technical subjects (mathematics, physics, technology and computer science) and is conducted at the department IfU at RWTH University in Aachen, Germany. It is a part of the project RoboScope, developed in Germany to inspire young people to study more engineering. This laboratory work uses Lego Mindstorms and the students should work with robotics. The laboratory work is based on a theme; the students will build a robot that can complete a specific task, a rescue task in a nuclear power plant. The new parts in the laboratory work “Rescue Work” involve more interactivity, higher degree of freedom, older students and the programming is made in Java. The laboratory work uses the model of Brall. Evaluation of the laboratory work has been done together with colleagues at IfU and a group of school students.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport redovisar ett examensarbete gjort på programmet Civilingenjör och Lärare på KTH och SU. Examensarbetets syfte är att skapa en laboration för att försöka inspirera studenter till de tekniska ämnena (matematik, fysik, teknik och datavetenskap) och är genomfört vid institutionen IfU på universitetet RWTH i Aachen, Tyskland. Den är en del av ett projekt RoboScope, drivet i Tyskland för att inspirera fler elever till att studera till ingenjörer. Denna laboration använder sig av Lego Mindstorms och studenterna arbetar med robotik. Laborationen utgår från ett tema och studenterna ska bygga en robot som kan genomföra den specifika uppgiften de blir tilldelade. Uppgiften är en räddningsaktion i ett kärnkraftverk. De nya delarna i denna laboration involverar mer interaktivitet, högre frihetsgrader, äldre elever och programmeringen genomförs i Java. Laboration använder sig av modellen av Brall. En utvärdering är gjord tillsammans med kollegor på IfU och en grupp av studenter.
