We have a whole line of curriculum for you to teach critical skills such as Programming, 21st Century skills, the Engineering process, teamwork, and Robotics. All of our curriculum consist of step-by-step tutorial videos, and typically take 40-60 hours to complete. Our curricula can be used as self-paced, but also allows for differentiated instruction by including additional challenges. Our offerings are based on popular educational robotics platforms such as the VEX EDR, VEX IQ, and LEGO EV3 robots.

EDR Video Trainer

Includes in-depth programming lessons for ROBOTC, multi-faceted engineering challenges, step-by-step videos, robotics support material, educational resources, and more. Whether you’re just looking for help getting started with the VEX EDR and ROBOTC, or are planning on integrating it into the classroom, we’re confident that the video trainer will be an invaluable tool for you.

Introduction to Programming VEX IQ

Designed for Students and Instructors – Designed to encourage independent learning and problem solving in pursuit of a goal. All lessons are self-contained, require a minimum of instructor supervision, and include many built-in opportunities to self-assess progress. Prior robotics experience not required or assumed!
