In this paper, we have selected physical computing as the focused learning elements with the PBL-based programming instruction method. Students experienced physical computing by using Arduino. Development of robot using Arduino can create an effective educational environment and also provide solutions for lack of environmental conditions, such as time or spatial factor restrictions and excessive expense issues; these are major obstacles to developing robot programming education. Finally, we analyzed the effects on growth of student`s logical thinking and problem solving abilities by demonstrating the Arduino application courseware to the field of education.
