Free Robotics Competition Training from Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy

The Robotics Academy is pleased to offer free training using materials that have been used to teach over one million new robot programmers.  Our training begins today. We are using components that have been designed for our newly emerging Computer Science Student Network.

The training will be offered using a Learning Management System (LMS) that allows students to log in 24/7 (whenever they want) to learn to program robots. The LMS will be supported using Robotics Academy software, an instructor, and a monitored forum where students will be able to ask questions and find answers. Training will be available for the following platforms:

NXT Programming for FLL Teams

This course is designed to support FIRST LEGO League teams using select materials from the NXT Video Trainer 2.0. It is optimized to cover the most commonly-used FLL board behaviors as quickly as possible.
