11 Illah Nourbakhsh | The Robotics Institute | Carnegie Mellon University Best of “Lessons Learned” Robotics and gender retention - increased achievement in all-women teams - direct evidence of retention in CS, engineering fields Mechanical empowerment - ID with technology results depends on full development cycle - robot activities should “push back on the world” Remote programming - emphasize off-board and on-board code explicitly Vision-centered perception - low-cost, enriched capabilities and rewarding outcomes Self-defined challenges - physical embodiment leads to diversity of projects*

12 Illah Nourbakhsh | The Robotics Institute | Carnegie Mellon University What Students Expected to Learn and What They Reported Learning

13 Illah Nourbakhsh | The Robotics Institute | Carnegie Mellon University What Students Expected to Learn and What They Reported Learning

14 Illah Nourbakhsh | The Robotics Institute | Carnegie Mellon University Reported Learning Quotes from Trikebot Final Survey “To open source ones code for the better of robotics.” “Teamwork is hard especially with varying levels of skill and different personalities…can be rewarding only through compromise.” “Document what one does so someone else can repeat the experiment [and] be just or even more successful.” “That no matter what the obstacle we have, we can still overcome it and solve it.” “Start with the basics, then make things fancier if you want…simple is absolutely fine if it works well.” “Have more confidence with myself.” “I learned that doing something slow is better than doing it twice.”
