The pedagogical use of robotics in collegiate courses in Engineering and Artificial Intelligence and also as part of K-12 enrichment is slowly becoming mainstream. However, few courses combine these two areas by putting the college students in the field with young children. This paper describes a new course at California State University Long Beach, CECS 401: Robots for Educators. A brief overview of the course is presented along with the narrative from three students describing their experience of working with students from local high schools and after-school programs in a low-income community.
