This paper focuses on the development of new software and agent-centric curriculum for teaching introductory computer science (CS1) students, using Surveyor's SRV-1 robot, with the intention of creating an engaging, interactive learning environment. The SRV-1 platform is an interesting contrast to the older and more well-known LEGO Mindstorms RCX. We present our work with the SRV-1 and contrast our experiences with previous work using the RCX.
