Robot Academy STEM/STEAM Curriculum Creates Winners

Evidence-Based Excellence

Robot Academy LEGO robotics world champions developed and refined our lessons and activities over the last 15+ years. Our students have improved their grades in school, won world titles in robotics and invention competitions, and earned scholarships to STEM-based programs at top universities.

Robot Academy empowers kids to become engineers, programmers, inventors and entrepreneurs—all while having hands-on fun!

For over 15 years, Robot Academy has built confidence in students using STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) instruction.

Project-Based STEM/STEAM Curriculum with LEGO Robots

Learn creative problem-solving by engaging with real-world engineering design challenges. Students build and code robots to create solutions for everyday tasks like “cleaning” their room and feeding the pet. We help motivate students to build and program for fun BattleBot competitions, Jousting and more.

Students get extensive hands-on building and programming experience through group and individual activities that don’t require each student to have a full robotics set in front of them at all times. Each lesson ends with an application to real-world engineering.

Our curriculum works with Robot Academy’s Arduino LEGO Robot, LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3, LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Robot Inventor and LEGO® Education SPIKE™. All the robots are compatible with Chromebook, PC, MAC and iPad. The one-stop programming platform is designed for STEAM education for all ages and levels. It supports both block-based and textual programming languages. Switching from the block-based program Scratch to Python or Arduino C is just one click away.

Our proprietary Robot Academy Arduino LEGO Robot comes with four expansion ports that let kids connect to more than 100 kinds of electronic modules with nine expansion kits so students can learn new curriculum each year. LEGO® compatibility leads to hours of creative play as students explore new ways to build, combine, expand and customize with the building blocks of robotic invention.

Easy-to-Learn, Drag-and-Drop Programming

Students will learn Scratch coding and receive guidance on using Arduino C and Python languages through the curriculum.

Scratch is an easy-to-use, block-based visual programming language targeted primarily for children ages 5–16 years as an educational tool for programming.

Arduino C is an easy-to-use, open-source platform that is a simplified version of C++, which is used in universities.

Python is a widely used, interpreted, object-oriented and high-level programming language used for general-purpose programming and is popular at universities.

4 Modules

Each Module Contains Video Lessons, Written Lesson Plans, and an Answer Key

Module A: Clash of Knights and Mars Rescue
Easy online instruction from The Robot Guy walks students through building their robots step by step. Students will learn basic Scratch programming and then will code and upload fun programs to the robot with lights and sounds. Then it’s time to send knights into battle with a jousting competition! Next up is a Mars Rescue where students will combine mechanical design techniques with sensor programming for an out-of-this world experience.

Module B: BattleBot and Walky-Talky Dog
Let’s add an expansion set and make a walking, talking dog! Adding musical programming to our robot gives our dog its bark. Now it’s time to build an epic BattleBot using variables to program the robot. Students can pit their bots against the others in the BattleBot ring to compete! Whose bot will win?

Module C: Robots Do Your Chores
Who hasn’t fantasized about getting a robot to do our work for us? Let’s make it happen! Using the Servo expansion pack, we’ll add to our programming skills. Teach the robot to feed the pet (drop), clean your room (push) and clear the table (pull). Chores were never so painless!

Module D: Creative Problem-Solving
Students can now apply all the skills they’ve learned in modules A–C to find technological solutions to real-world problems. Help students bring their ideas to life with the use of rapid prototyping: 3D Printing, Cardboard Prototyping, and LEGO Robotics. Take creative problem-solving up a notch with opportunities for students to pitch their products to the class.
