Abstract: This paper presents a pilot project using an educational robotics curriculum that was developed to enhance teaching of standard physics and math topics to middle and early high school students in inner-city schools in New York City. The lessons are centered around the LEGO Mindstorms robotics kit and the RoboLab graphical programming environment. The pilot project, testing the curriculum in two summer programs for early high school students, was conducted in 2003 at two locations in Harlem, New York City, USA.
