Abstract

The idea of design and building the Educational Multifunctional Electronic Robotic Kit (E.M.E.R.K) as teaching aids is to enhanced the process of teaching and learning easily and practically for each subtopic in the introduction to robotic topic of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Studies Form 5 subject in Technical Secondary School. The produce of this kit can be seen as the initiative to enhance activities based on hands on method of teaching and learning. The purpose of this project is to build a teaching aid called the Educational Multifunctional Electronic Robotic Kit (E.M.E.R.K) that can help and motivate students toward learning the introduction to robotic topic during the lesson in class. Secondly, it is to evaluate the design of the robotic kit and furthermore to test the functionality of this educational robotic kit. Moreover, with the complete and explicit content of lab sheets on how the robot and the programming of PLC works, it can help teachers deliver the process of teaching and learning in the systematic way. In the process of designing kit, researcher selected the ADDIE Model as the elements towards developing product design that contain analysis phase, design phase, development phase, implementation phase and evaluation phase. The effectiveness of using E.M.E.R.K is tested toward teacher that teach PLC topic in Technical Secondary School with the teacher test using it along with answering questionnaire. The results and feedback are positive and teacher loves using it and it actually help them in the process of teaching and learning. As a conclusion, E.M.E.R.K that involve PLC and robotics successfully developed and built as a teaching kit to help the process of teaching and learning for teachers and students for the topic introduction to robotic in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Studies subject.
