Try Robot Virtual Worlds for a full 60 days!*
No Robot, No Problem! Robot Virtual Worlds is a high-end simulation environment that enables students, without robots, to learn programming right from their computer.
*requires an installed version of ROBOTC
And everyone gets their own robot!
Pictured at the left you find the Robot Virtual World classroom programming environment. Programmers select their challenges on the left side of the interface
Once the challenge is selected a description of the challenge shows up on the right side of the page. Most of the challenges come directly from the ROBOTC Curriculum. See example challenges below.
Robot Challenges include simple challenges like the ones shown above, but also have more complicated path planning challenges like the ones show here. At the left is a challenge called the Grand Challenge which involves navigating your robot through a building like structure. The board above shows the challenge without the building. Below is another multifaceted programming challenge designed to test a students programming ability.
FTC and VEX Challenges are available as free downloads when you purchase the Robot Virtual World software. This will allow the programming team to begin to develop code before the robot is completed!
