Artificial intelligence education has received great attention, and it is one of the current research hotspots. In many artificial intelligence algorithms, search algorithm is a basis in the field of artificial intelligent. In particular, it is widely used in the field of knowledge discovery. In this paper, we use the CDIO approach to design an AI Experimental course on search algorithms and implement this course. In the implementation process, we teach students how to apply search strategies in robot tasks through the CDIO theory framework. Feedback from students participating in the experimental course shows that this method has a good application promising.
