Robot Engineering Vol. 1 – Introduction to Mobile Robotics

This multimedia curriculum is an ideal tool to introduce robots into the middle or high school classroom. It provides teachers with an engaging program to teach STEM concepts utilizing the LEGO Mindstorms NXT Robots. Students learn how to program basic robot behaviors using motors and rotation, sound, light, touch and ultrasonic sensors. Fifteen in-depth research lessons are based on real-world robots. Step-by-step videos teach students how to use the programming language, build robots, basic robot behavior, use of sensors, robot competition, etc.

ROBOTC Curriculum of TETRIX and LEGO MINDSTORMS

Teaching is a craft and every teacher does it differently. This curriculum is designed to teach “engineering process” and “programming”. The Robotics Academy has developed this curriculum to help teachers to teach and students to learn those competencies. The Robotics Academy is committed to helping teachers use robotics to teach science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Robot Virtual Worlds

No Robot, No Problem! Robot Virtual Worlds is a high-end simulation environment that enables students, without robots, to learn programming. Research has shown that learning to program in RVW is more efficient than learning to program using physical robots. RVW simulates popular real world LEGO robots in 3D environments and allows you to program them using the same languages as physical robots. The RVW environment is perfect for home, classroom, and competition environments!

Virtual Brick


Virtual Brick

The Virtual Brick allows you to program virtual robots in the Robot Virtual World software using the same programming languages as you can to program real LEGO robots. This allows students additional practice programming and when used appropriately can help students increase their understanding of scale and rate two BIG IDEAS in mathematics. The Virtual Brick works with the following LEGO compatible software: NXT-G, EV3,and LabVIEW for LEGO MINDSTORMS. The Virtual Brick looks and acts like another LEGO Brain, or Brick to these programs.

ROBOTC Software


ROBOTC Graphical

ROBOTC Graphical is an intuitive icon-based drag and drop programming language that is designed for beginning programmers.  This environment enables teachers to begin to teach students about sequencing, conditional statements, sensor feedback, and loops. This environment is perfect as an introductory programming language, but is not designed for intermediate or advanced programmers.

ROBOTC Natural Language

ROBOTC Natural Language places basic motor commands like moving forward and backward into easy to use functions that empower the student to quickly enable a simple robot behavior. Natural language also enables the programmer to call sensor commands like “untilRotations” which control how far the robot travels, or untilDark, which controls how long the robot will execute a behavior. Natural language provides a scaffolded programming environment between ROBOTC Graphical and full ROBOTC.

ROBOTC

ROBOTC  is a powerful C-based programming language with a Windows environment for writing and debugging programs, and the only programming language at this level that offers a comprehensive, real-time debugger. ROBOTC is a cross-platform solution that allows students to learn the type of c-based programming used in advanced education and professional applications.
