This report details, in terms of the management and course content, joint projects between technical high schools in Chiba Prefecture, Japan, and a university. The projects were courses that intended to improve, through a wide range of manufacturing activities involving the development of robots, the manufacturing abilities and basic skills as working people of technical high school students. In 2009 and 2010, various high schools and a university ran courses in cooperation, and through questionnaire surveys we discovered the significance of the use of robots as an educational subject of study and learned useful points regarding the course content.
