Course structure

The course is divided in 10 topics. Each week we cover one topic. Apart from that we have one preliminary section, where you need to prepare yourself for the course and one final section, where we wrap up the whole course. So the course schedule is as follows:

  • Week 0 - Preliminary Tasks
  • Week 1 - Moving the robot
  • Week 2 - Sensors part 1 (Touch and Color)
  • Week 3 - Sensors part 2 (Gyro and Ultrasonic)
  • Week 4 - If clause. Switch
  • Week 5 - Mechanics I
  • Week 6 - Variable 101
  • Week 7 - Multi-thread programming
  • Week 8 - Competition programming
  • Week 9 - My blocks
  • Week 10 - Methodology
  • Week 11 - Wrap up

Each week you have reading assignments, as well as tasks to put in practice the knowledge and skills gained. Each task will be reviewed by a trainer and you will receive relevant feedback.

Apart from the resources on the platform, the course consists of online meetings with an instructor. The online meetings are divide into two types. Learning sessions, when we go through the material together with you and support sessions, when we go through the tasks you have submitted and answer any further questions. The Learning sessions are 4 or 7 hours long, depending on the schedule purchases, while the support sessions are 1 hour long. For your

Little or no experience in Programming

We will give you step-by-step instructions and plenty of explanations concerning the programming and engineering aspects of the material. You will be able to go through the material both on your own with your own pace and in a small group with a proffessional instructor. Then you can practice the new knowledge and skills with multiple tasks with different difficulty.

Some experience in Programming

The course will help you organize your knowledge in the field of LEGO Robotics, so that it will be easier for you to pass it on to students. Thanks to the different levels of task complexity, you will be able to deepen your understanding and take your skills to the next level.

Private tutoring

One group is up to three participants so that we can address your personal educational needs. We will do our best to pair participants with similar profiles together, based on our questionnaire.
We encourage you to ask the questions that are important to you so that you get the most value for you, while still following the structure of the training.

More than just a technical course

This is much more that just an LEGO Robotics Course. We will not only go through the technical part necessary to conduct classes with students or prepare them for competition, but also how to pass your knowledge to the students. The topics contain examples of how you can present in easy and entertaining way the theory to the students and demonstrate the tools that the platform offers to make it even more easier.

Certification

Certificate issued to a teacher

Our online course ends with a test. When you solve the tasks successfully, you will receive a certificate for Robopatans Certified Teacher of LEGO Robotics. This certificate would recognize your technical and social abilities to work with students, classes with students and teams. The test will be conducted online and will last between 2 and 4 hours.

Every certificate is with unique number and it can be accessed and shared automatically in all social networks and internet.

Testimonials

  • "The best part was the teachers' part where you teach me how to teach students those new concepts. One does not get that every day."

  • "It is challenging without being overwhelming;
    It is detailed without being boring.
    It offers personalized and flexible topics within a predefined structure."

  • "It is very rare to find a course with the focus on Lego Robotics. I was not able to find anything like this, structured, with knowledgeable instructors, and homework assignments, here in the United States. I would like to thank you for that."

  • "I have to say though that I completely enjoyed the fact that we had so few people in the group. It felt like private tutoring."

  • "The class was everything I had hoped for and more. It was challenging and demanding and pushed me beyond what I thought I could do. Through it all, I felt well-supported. By the end of the Training course, not only had I learned more than I expected, I'd made friends..." - read the whole message here
