This paper describes the modeling, the development and the evaluation of embedded system study environment using robot and a note on experiment at technical high school. This paper discusses about the following points:(1) visualizing the behavior of embedded system in synchronization with the robot’s behavior, (2) integrating environment from concept based learning to implementation based learning, and (3) validating the efficiency of the system through the lecture and the evaluation at technical high school. This report is a summary of this environment, learning courseware of embedded system and research result at study of a technical high school.
