Don't wast the time till the end of the school year. Bring the students back to the lab. FLL 2016-2017 is coming to its finals and we've decided to look at different approaches for accomplishing the missions. We are not releasing solutions before most of the finals. What we want is for teams for which the seasons is already over to start working on improving their FIRST LEGO League robot game and their score.
Platform for classes in Robotics & STEM
Integrated Robotics & STEM classes could be extremely difficult for the teacher to organize. We support the teacher and the participating students. With the platform we provide content & infrastructure for conducting classes, preparing for competitions and learing in class or at home. As kits we currently use LEGO Mindstorms EV3/NXT, VEX, Tetrix, Arduino.
FLLCasts.com is teaming up with FutureLeague to launch a Summer of Fun and FREE Lego Robotics Challenges to prep you for FLL 2017! FutureLeague is based in San Francisco,CA and inspires kids to build the future through STEM education. We'll release the Lego Robotics challenge on June 1st. Meanwhile, take a look at our short promo. Complete the challenge, submit a video by July 1st and we'll award...
After the first box robot course and its enourmous success, we decided to build a second box robot. This time with fewer parts and with only three motors.
You will learn how to conduct classes with students with EV3 Mindstorms Robots, to follow the Robopartans Methodology and to prepare teams for competitions.

It's a box! It's a robot! It's a box robot.
Box robots are very popular on different robotics competitions involving LEGO Mindstorms like the FIRST LEGO League or World Robotics Olympiad. Let's start with a brief introduction and continue in the next videos with explanation on the features of the robot and why such robots are frequently used.

The second construction of the series along with a comparison with the first construction. The new robot requires more parts, but has a few more advantages.

With the shape of a box it is very easy to align this robot to different wall and to add very stable pinless attachments to it. The goal of the video is to discuss this feature of this particular robot construction.

Five different robot chassis. This is the goal of the series. To present ideas for different design of the robots and especially the robot bases. If the base is stable and balanced, then in could easily be extended. Let's start with the most simple of the five.

The teacher I work with was able to get things fixed. I was surprised that you guys launched another box robot, smaller version!! You’re killing me guys!! I built the big one this past weekend and love it. The outside mounted color sensor cable does interfere with rotational transfer gears so you might offer some remedy for this too. In all seriousness though, you guys have tremendous content and are an invaluable resource for us. Wish we had done this last year.

I would like to register for the online intructor course. Timing is definitely a very big factor for me. If you can help me figure these out correctly, I will register right away.
You guys are awesome. You make things simpler to understand. Looking forward for reply.

Thanks so much for your great site & resources. My FLL Team (Armbrae Dragonites, from Halifax, NS, CANADA) and I have learned a lot from your videos and discussions, and plan to continue our subscription.
One thing that would be extremely helpful to us is to be able to explore the code needed to solve a fairly complex mission from a past challenge. I am gaining an understanding of how better to program EV3, but I would really like to see how DR/sensor movement/attachment commands are fit together to make a successful whole.
