Resources for preparing for the FIRST Technical Challenge (FTC) competition. Most of the resources are about Tetrix and Matrix sets.
Categories group many Tutorials, Courses, Playlists and Materials under a common topic.
Every teacher/instructor can conduct classes with students using these resources. You need to motivate and organize the students. We provide the technical theory, tasks, instructions, programs and everything needed.
"I came to browse the Internet and build robots. And I am done browsing the Internet". Many different approaches, principles and directions to constructing robots with detailed building instructions and pictures.
Robotics tutorials connected with the VEX robotics sets. Both VEX EDR and VEX IQ. The sets are a little more complicated that the LEGO sets and offer many opportunities for new STEM challenges and for new more integrated approaches to learning STEM.
How to express your ideas with a program language. Your instructions to the robot. Humans are also have programs - it is our DNA. The DNA of the robots are the programming instructions that we give.
Separate the robot construction on body - body and attachments. Attachments should be small, light and most importantly for winning the competitions they should be pinless. In this category we group videos for different attachments that have proved to be useful.
Here we collect resources that are common for most LEGO Mindstorms robotics competitions. The resources here could be used for FLL, WRO, general line following, sumo and many more.
We try to explain some basic laws of Physics with these resources. Sometimes there are calculations, but we try to keep it visual and to move step by step.

Learn how to build LEGO robots and win the FIRST LEGO League competition.
Using LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and NXT robotics kits we give curriculum ideas, share professional experience and teach students to think and develop as engineers. The goal of this category is to group specific examples from specific missions.
Contains resources for LEGO Mindstorms competitions. There are many LEGO competitions using EV3, NXT and RCX robots. These competitions have some similarities, but could be quite different in general. Most popular are of course FIRST LEGO League and World Robotics Olympiad.
The LEGO Mindstorms robots incude a Gyro sensor. Gyros are always interesting. Always funny and most of all - usefull. Yes, it is sometimes difficult so in this category we collect resources connected with Gyro sensor.
Do you know you can detect how many degrees has the motor rotated? All you have to do is the Rotation sensor of LEGO Mindstorms EV3 & NXT. It is a sensor embedded in the motors themselves.
There are common patterns when working with LEGO Mindstorms Sensors that could be applied to Sound, Rotation, Gyro, Color and all the other sensors.
LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and NXT include many sensors. Use of the sensors is what makes the robot powerfull.
With the use of ultrasound the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 & NXT Ultrasonic sensors could detect the distance to an object. You can use it in many different ways most of them very interesting and fun. Some of them a little more challenging, but rewarding.
