What is the Powered by Program?
Learn Robotics has simplified the way robotics programs are launched through our Powered by Program. Our program is very interactive and is designed to give students real-world engineering experience. This makes it great preparation for robotics teams, future technical careers, and STEM departments.
Students will love the interactive labs, and staff will have access to ready-made lesson plans, real-time reports, and grades.

What does the Level 1 Robotics curriculum cover?
This introductory course is designed for students interested in the world of computer programming, electronics, and advancing technology.
Robotics Learning Outcomes
- Write code in C/C++
- Understand how to use microcontrollers
- Wire and prototype with breadboards
- Read data from Analog vs. Digital Sensors
- Variables, Methods, Conditional Logic
- Reading technical diagrams, schematics, and interpret requirements
- Diagnose and troubleshoot circuits
At the end of this course, students will be able to showcase their prototypes and have tangible skills they can showcase on a resume or in a project portfolio.
Interactive Robotics Curriculum Classroom Set for Middle and High School Students
Use our middle and high school robotics curriculum to provide a stress-free roadmap for your robotics class. This is great for scenarios when the instructor or facilitator has no previous experience with electronics, coding, or robotics. We include everything you need including pacing schedules, multimedia-rich lesson plans, hardware kits, quizzes, and capstone projects.
Students don’t just copy and paste code. Our curriculum is designed to systemically teach students how to learn, think critically, and expand their technical foundations. The goal is to get students to apply their knowledge to custom projects. Some schools opt to use our curriculum as a precursor to robotics teams, tech clubs, or college prep courses.
What age group is the robotics curriculum for?
We’ve designed our Level 1 course for students at the high school or advanced middle school level.
With that said, we know that each classroom is different, so if your students already have basic computer skills, touch typing, and building experience, you’re welcome to give our programs a try!
How long is the robotics curriculum?
Ultimately, you can choose how long you want to run your class. When you enroll, we will provide you with a pacing tool to generate a custom schedule for your classroom. That way, you’ll know what to teach and when to teach it, to stay on track!
- For high school robotics classes, we recommend running each level for one semester or two quarters. For advanced high school students, you can run both levels for one semester. (Each level is a quarter).
- At the middle school level, you can run each level for one semester or two quarters (advanced class) or one year (traditional class).
- For super-advanced elementary students (grades 5 and up), we recommend offering each level for one school year.
What do the hardware kits include?
Each Curriculum Level has its own Learn Robotics Kit, which contains all of the components and tools you need to build the lab-based projects. Kits come pre-sorted, labeled, and organized, so all you have to do is hand them out to students. No more guessing what part is which, or trying to source missing pieces!
Level 1 Mini Kit (SKU: 801083-K): Arduino Controller, Resistors, LEDs, Jumper Wires, Variable Resistors, Breadboard, USB programming cable
How many kits do we need?
Learn Robotics programs are a bit different than traditional robotics classes. Rather than have students work in groups of 3+, our goal is to equip every student with their own robotics kit.
Our classroom sets include enough kits for every user.
If you choose the 10 student set, you’ll receive 11 kits (one for each student and one for the staff). The staff’s kit can be used to demonstrate lab modules and as a spare parts kit for students.
Why does each student need their own kit?
In the workforce, you’re not going to have 2+ people to collaborate or consult with when you need to fix a broken machine or industrial robot. You have to know how to troubleshoot and work alone! That’s why our programs replace textbooks with hardware parts. We’re teaching students to learn by doing.
With that said, if you have budget restrictions, we provide the option to purchase additional digital student licenses if you want students to share kits. We do not recommend having more than 2 students per kit.
Why choose Learn Robotics Curriculum for your school robotics class?
We provide everything you need to be successful with your robotics program. Hardware kits arrive individually sorted, labeled, and organized. Access to the Learn Robotics Curriculum App is 24/7 and includes a variety of multimedia, video, and interactive lessons. Your students can follow along with step-by-step demonstrations of how to write code, design prototypes, and build robots. And, instructors can feel confident teaching a highly technical course with readymade resources.
How do we know that this robotics classroom curriculum set is the best?
Don’t just take our word for it. Here are some recent testimonials from both instructors and students in the Powered by Program:
And, if that isn’t enough, our robotics curriculum classroom set was designed by robotics engineers and industry professionals.
That means we aren’t educators by default. You are.
We’ve taken our years of shop-floor, engineering, and machine-fixing experience and optimized it into educational content that will prepare students for technical careers.
You bring the passion for education, and we’ll provide the hard-core engineering expertise. Cool, right?
