Exploring Autonomous Vehicles with mBot Robot

Self-driving vehicles will be on the road soon. Students can use a fun robot to learn the foundations of this new technology and the science and engineering behind it. This course explores physical science and engineering design using a robot as an autonomous vehicle. Students will be engaged in coding, problem based learning, and critical thinking as they learn how to control this small robot using Scratch block-based coding.

mBot is a STEAM education robot for beginners, that makes teaching and learning robot coding simple and fun. Students learn coding with Scratch drag and drop language. While working through the challenges, they will apply math and science knowledge and skills. As an Integrated STEM course, every lesson includes science and math as well as technology and engineering. Arts are also included with music, drawing, writing, reading, and creating multimedia presentations. Students are introduced to STEM careers, and the confidence gained from succeeding in this course will often encourage pursuit of more STEM courses and careers.

GrovePi Starter Kit 800x800

UKIT Intermediate


 Exploring Robotics with UKIT Intermediate

Students express their creativity while exploring engineering and programming concepts with the UKIT. Building is made easy using an advanced, 360-degree modeling system.

With our comprehensive middle school STEM curriculum, they will learn about sensors and the Engineering Design Process. Block-based programming with a preview in Python is used to connect and control the robot.

Our project-based learning methods are not only intuitive and engaging for students but also teaches them how to begin with a design idea, learn how each device works, apply it to their design, and finally build their invention. What a great way to apply concepts with hands-on building while integrating NGSS and STEM standards!

Scribbler


Exploring Robotics with Scribbler Robot

Girls and boys delight in programming Scribbler robots to draw amazing things, dance the Hokey Pokey (or other dance routines) flash lights, and complete science and math lessons disguised as fun projects.  The hole in the center holds a pen to draw, and students must use math to control the robot and create their drawing.

Self-paced middle school STEAM lessons with videos present math topics like calculating diameter, radius, and drawing rectangles, triangles, and other shapes. Science video topics include sound waves, light, LEDs, and electricity.  Use Scribbler to teach coding concepts, and reinforce STEAM for middle school classes, after school programs, or clubs. Classroom competitions are included: maze, line following, drawing, and dance routines are keeping students engaged. No assembly is required for the robot, making it easy to use in multiple sections.

Ranger


Exploring Robotics with Ranger

Ranger is an advanced version of mBot that comes with 3 configurations for three times the fun! From construction and operation to programming, Ranger allows students to receive STEAM education in a simple and fun way. Ranger also gets students started on robot programming, advancing with them as they grow and develop their problem solving abilities.

Ranger includes approximately 100 mechanical parts and electronic modules which allows students to transform it into a tank-like Off-road Land Raider, three-wheel racing car Dashing Raptor, or a Self-balancing Nervous Bird. No matter whether it’s a muddy track or a challenging arena, Ranger can conquer any terrain.
