The advantage of robot such as Soccerbot and BOEbot to introduce mechanical engineering to the freshman in engineering clinic is discussed. The Soccerboat is a miniature legged robot with a handheld controller along with two symmetric sets of moving components. The BOEbot is a more advanced system as compared to the Soccerbot as it includes three parts: chasis, computer board, and extra electronic board. However, the application of sensor such as photo-resistor can make the robot to circumvent automatically.
