Bülbül, Mustafa Sahin – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2017
In this century, technological and educational needs increase drastically. Out of local language, educators need to teach robotic language and use necessary technologies to design robots like with the Arduino set. Users may develop their own robots with this set. It also improves design and implementation skills. However, it is not a suitable…
