Making it easier to bring physical computing to your classroom.

Many teachers that I speak to would love to include physical computing in their syllabus, but unfortunately, with decreasing budgets and less time to prepare such lessons, it can be a challenge for some schools.

During the workshops we run, students are always very excited to have a hands-on activity. They love writing the programs because they get to see a real output - usually something that crashes into a wall to begin with but they usually get the hang of it after a while!

We wanted a way for that excitement and love of coding to continue after our workshop ends, and so we have put together a fun online course that both teachers and students can use to learn how to build and program a robot.

We're hoping these online courses will help you in the following way:

  1. Engage your students further by making real robots & fun projects
  2. Minimise upfront investment and prep time required
  3. Further increase your confidence when answering your students' questions

The course shows you everything step by step
Explained simply with fun challenges to try yourself

How can I use this?

Become a cool Zobotics teacher

Teach yourself

This will help you start or diversify your programming skills.  All of your department can learn robotics without the need for external training days.

Use it in lessons

Most students enjoy making things. It's a good way to enage them in computing and show them the benefits of learning how to code.

Use it in a club

With Zobotics kids can build something for real and defend real forts! The skills learned from the first course can be used for lots of different projects.

How much will it cost?

The first part of the course is free, it shows you how to get started with arduino, build a basic circuit and light up an LED.

For the full course, teachers receive a discount on the usual price of £45, full pricing is as below:
