The Ultimate Training Tool for Popular National Robotics Programs.

Curriculum

We are providing the strategy worksheets for each of our mats, similar to the ones provided by TechBrick each year. In addition, there is a Microsoft Word template for mission development. We are asking those who develop training missions for these mats to record them and email them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. If you purchase any mat you will be notified when new missions have been submitted or you can check back at this page.

A Note About Programming: The curriculum guides outline conceptual missions. Detailed programming steps and robot construction is so well covered on the web that we have only focused on goal-oriented aspects of the missions
