Robotics is an incredible tool for exciting students about Science, math and Computer Programming. Still robotics classrooms face several challenges. Providing enough robots to facilitate a classroom can be expensive, and few students have their own robots for home work. Now, with Robot Virtual Worlds (RVW) every student with a computer can experience the same benefits of learning how to program robots.
RVW simulates popular real world VEX, LEGO and TETRIX robots in a 3-D environment. The virtual robots are programmed using the same language and environment as their real world counterparts.
RobotC is a leader in educational robot programming.
RVW is available to students 24X7 allowing them to learn to program at home giving the teachers the ability to assign homework. RVW cirruculum and training resources are available online (for free). A full version of the virtual world software can also be downloaded for free for 60 days! Try programming on the curriculum challenge boards.
If you have computers with dedicated video cards you should also checkout some of the themed virtual worlds such as the tropics and outer space.
- Use the exact same ROBOTC code in both the simulation environment and the real environment
- Includes ROBOTC’s powerful interactive run-time debugger
