In this study, we have developed teaching material for helping technical high-school students understand control techniques. Students understand control techniques through the emotion obtained from the experience of riding a robot. We have considered the correspondence of the teaching material with the ARCS Model. Therefore, the material is aimed at improving student’s interest and willingness to learn mechatronics and control techniques by experience the difference of the response by the change in the control parameters. By performing an experiment, we have verified the educative effect of the teachingmaterial, which can improve the willingness of students to learn and their interest in mechatronics and control techniques.
