Robots do surgery, build cars, and assist us with our complex modern lives. This project is all about these amazing machines and learning to build and program your own robots to solve issues you face.

Project Levels

ROBOTICS 1

In level 1, use LEGO® EV3 technology to learn what a robot is, how to build one, and how to program it.

ROBOTICS 2

In level 2, use LEGO® EV3 technology to learn new robot configurations and programming challenges.

ROBOTICS 3

In level 3, learn to program non-LEGO® robots using free range open source hardware and software. Learn how to build and program a robot, understand difference of closed and open source design, and configure robots.

JUNK DRAWER ROBOTICS LEVEL 1

In level 1, build robots from everyday items without using computers. Explore robot arms, pneumatics, arm designs, and three-dimensional space. Order the Presenter’s Guide and the Youth Notebook.

JUNK DRAWER ROBOTICS LEVEL 2

In level 2, build robots from everyday items without using computers. Explore robots that move with legs and wheels and move underwater. Order the Presenter’s Guide and the Youth Notebook. 

JUNK DRAWER ROBOTICS LEVEL 3

In level 3, build robots from everyday items without using computers. Explore sensors, analog, and digital systems. Order both the Presenter’s Guide and the Youth Notebook.
