Teaching Erlang using Robotics and Player/Stage

Computer science is often associated with dull code debugging instead of solving interesting problems. This fact causes the decrease in number of computer science students and can be stopped by giving lectures on interesting context like robotics. In this paper we introduce an easily deployable and extensible library which allows programming a popular robot simulator in Erlang. New possibilities for visual, simple and attractive teaching of functional languages are open.
