Abstract
Introduction to Mobile Robot Programming is a new project-based course taught at Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar to undergraduates early in the curriculum. We describe the course details and relate our experiences and observations. We believe that this course is a valuable introductory computer science course; however, its success requires a significant time commitment from the instructors. The value lies in this course? ability to add breadth and computational thinking skills that will aid the students as they progress.
