Computational science is an interdisciplinary field in which mathematical models combined with scientific computing methods are used to study systems of real-world problems. One of such mathematical models is automata theory. This paper introduces a learning system for automata theory. The learning system is a combination of java and robots technologies. Learners can build their own automaton graphically in the systems' interface, and then pass it to the robot, which can then simulate the
