Abstract: The inclusion of robots, robotics kits, and other automated tools and apps in educational settings leads us to consider hidden assumptions and implicit theories that robots encode. This paper draws critical attention to advances in automation by examining two current uses of robots in learning designs. Drawing on recent ideas in STS (Suchman, 2011) and Critical Code Studies (Benjamin, 2019), we analyze two categories of automated agents- competitive robots built by youth and coding robots used by young children.
