This report contains materials to assist teachers and others in designing curricula in robotics. The first section includes the results of a survey of technicians and supervisors in nine companies involved with robots that was designed to gather information concerning the education and training needed to prepare for a career in robotics. The second section suggests broad guidelines for the design of courses dealing with robotics. Next, existing British curricula in robotics are reviewed. The fourth section consists of a brief discussion of the problem of identifying appropriate support for courses in robotics. Appendixes comprising approximately three-fourths of the booklet include instructional text on the robot as a device, robot stations, and robot applications; a list of curriculum objectives for robotics, a list of selected references, and a glossary.
