Remarkable robots

Whichever way you look at it, robots are big news! Check out this collection to see how your students could learn about and experience the exciting world of robotics! 

Remarkable Robots

Robotics features in so many innovations, from high-tech manufacturing and logistics through to surgery and prosthetic limbs.

This collection brings together experiences to learn about designing, building and programming robots to find solutions and improvements – and that it also takes determination, resilience and teamwork to succeed. The experiences cater to students at different levels and some include teacher CPD to give you the chance to update your skills too. 

With one eye on the future it’s no wonder there are so many robotics programmes out there, from workshops and in-school challenges to global competitions!
