Exploring Robotics with Boe Shield

Curriculum and Robots for STEM, Physical Science, Engineering, Computer Science, Coding, Mechatronics, Electronics, and Robotics programs Grades 9-12 - High School. 


Reinforce Physical Science and Math while teaching Electronics and Coding with the Boe Shield Bot Robot and Exploring Robotics Curriculum.

Turn-Key, active, online, hands-on learning. 

Build a robot with an Arduino brain, program it, and learn electronics, electricity, magnetism, engineering, mechanics, and other technical concepts.

Now any math, science, or technology teacher can teach with fun robots!   No engineering or programming experience required; just a few hours of online training with technical support available when you need it. The lessons are fully built out with videos. Teachers facilitate the class and encourage teamwork.

  • 3D models and tutorials provide step by step instructions for Hands-on robot building activities.

  • Video presentations for quick comprehension of mechanics, electronics, and engineering concepts.

  • Flexible lesson plans for 18, 36, or more weeks.  Shorter plans also for makerspaces and after school clubs.

  • Arduino C++  language is a great coding skill for students who will pursue STEM careers.  The coding lessons teach concepts of control, conditions, loops, variables, functions, and more with a fun robot. 
  • Online lessons can be viewed on tablets or other devices.  Windows computer is required to program the robot. (This is a great use for older desktop or laptops).

  • Students work alone or in teams of 2 or 3. Students are actively engaged in lab activities with this package.  They  assemble, program, and control the  Boe-Bot robot from Parallax.com (one of the most popular educational robots in the world). 

  • Great for physical science, elective courses, technical schools, after school programs, robot merit badges, job training, and entry-level course for Electronics, Engineering, Mechatronics, or Technology programs.

  • Aligned to NGSS engineering standards: Use to teach Nature of Energy, Velocity, Force, Unbalanced force, as well as Electronics principles - circuits, flow of electricity, resistance, capacitance, light waves, sound waves, electromagnetic waves, microcontrollers and more.

SELF-PACED Curriculum Features:

  • 24 Video presentations with over 13 hours of exciting videos that teach about robots in real world, technology history, systems, motors, sensors, ROVs, and much more!.

  • Student lesson menu with self-directed instructions include activities with Worksheets and Videos to accompany the robot provide an introduction to each chapter and 3D models with step by step instructions on how to assemble the robot and place electronic components in the breadboard to build circuits. 

  • Short Videos provide electronics background information about resistors, breadboards, schematics, input and output, power flow, and much more.
