Secondary Education

RoboMind is an excellent tool to introduce logic, computer science, computational thinking and robotics. Exercises and maps can easily be adjusted to relate to challenges encountered in daily life and industry.

RoboMind is developed with the idea to connect theory with applications. The programming environment offers some fundamentals from logic and computer science that allow you to simulate and create solutions for practically any challenge. With RoboMind you discover how Google create self-driving cars, NASA sends robots to Mars to do research, car manufacturers let robots do complex tasks and robots vacuum the house in the meanwhile.

RoboMind secondary education

Projects can typically be done in seven weeks, where you first learn the basics of programming and then work out a chosen challenge. Students are quickly up and running with the provided Example programs and online documentation. More material is available in the RoboMind Academy shop.

We also develop bridges between RoboMind and real robots. With the newest release of RoboMind, a first bridge with the Lego NXT MindStorms robot has been made available. As a result students can therefore now test their programs not only in simulation but also in the real world!

RoboMind Example Projects

The following challenges are example projects that students could dive into. More challenges come available when a RoboMind Educational Software Licence is purchased.

Start

Getting started

This activity uses RoboMind, a robot simulation environment, to present the fundamental concepts of robotics.  No prior experience with Robotics is necessary!  There is some simple programming involved, but don't be afraid to give it a try even if you have never programmed before.  The activity instructions will show you everything you need to know!
In this activity, you will:

  • Become familiar with RoboMind, a robot simulation environment
  • Command a robot to move where you want it to go
  • Teach the robot to sense its surroundings, so it doesn't crash
  • Make the robot perform a simple task for you (pick up and move an object)

RoboMind Line following challenge

In this activity you will use RoboMind, a robot simulation environment, to solve several "line follower" tasks.  Robotics competitions often include line follower challenges, where your robot must follow a line on the floor.  This activity is a good introduction to the programming tasks one might face as part of a robotics club or team, preparing for competition!
In this activity, you will:

  • Become familiar with RoboMind, a robot simulation environment
  • Program the robot to solve several different line following tasks
  • Develop an understanding of algorithms, and turn your algorithms into code for your robot

RoboMind Maze challenge

In this activity you will use RoboMind, a robot simulation environment, to solve simply connected mazes.  A simply connected maze is a maze has no loops, and no inaccessible areas.  Robotics competitions often include maze solving challenges.  This activity is a good introduction to the programming tasks one might face as part of a robotics club or team, preparing for competition!  Besides, after completing this activity, you'll never again have to worry about being hopelessly lost in a maze.In this activity, you will:

  • Become familiar with RoboMind, a robot simulation environment
  • Program the robot to solve a simply connected maze
  • Develop an understanding of maze algorithms, and turn your algorithms into code for your robot
