Abstract

This paper introduces the curriculum for creativity education that has been conducted at the Department of Mechano-Aerospace Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology, for 20 years, for the purpose of systematization of education using robots. In particular, we describe the significance of the lecture and operational know-how of contests for street performance robots, which we have continuously held in the course called “machine creation.” The results of a questionnaire survey of students indicate that this course is a valuable experience for students.
