with 4 comments

ROBOTC available as FREE download for training this summer


The teams have spoken!
Three out of four teams at the FTC national championships programmed their prize-winning robots with ROBOTC this year.

Thanks to its real-time debugger, optimized code, free online training materials, and large forum support community, ROBOTC is quickly becoming the language of choice for the robotics competition community.

The Robotics Academy supports teams competing in ROBOFEST, the National Robotics Challenge, FTC, and the VEX competition, just to name a few.  And, this summer only, you can train with it for FREE!


Go to ROBOTC for Mindstorms to register to receive a free copy of ROBOTC that you can load onto either your personal computer or a classroom set of computers for training teachers and students to program LEGO and TETRIX robots this summer.

Go to ROBOTC for IFI to register to receive a free copy of ROBOTC to prepare teachers and students to program with VEX and Cortex robots.

Feel free to pass these links on to students, teachers, and hobbyists!

Teacher training at Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Academy is filling fast!


Over the last five years over one thousand teachers from across the United States have come to Carnegie Mellon to receive training straight from the experts at the Robotics Academy. Remaining spots are filling fast!
