This brown bag session at the 2005 Microsoft Research Faculty Summit introduces our thoughts on the use of robotics technology for instruction—particularly in the general computer science curriculum at university level. We share some views of our own, some experiences of others that we have come across, present evidence of interest towards greater utilization of robotics in this context, identify some of the open questions and challenges, and highlight our hopes and expectations for this exciting spin on computer science instruction. This informal, provocative, discussion-based session, encouraged participation contribution and lively debate.
