Virtual Worlds Students have fun learning while playing in simulated 3D environments
Real Robots Optional, real robots make learning come alive and engage students with real challenges
Coding A gentle learning curve ensures coding novices become code wizards
1. Connect Blocks
2. "Start" to Simulate
Click the "Start" block to run your program in the simulator. Watch your robot interact with the 3D environment you've created. Gravity, sensors, chemical reactions, electricity are all simulated.
3. "Link" to the Real World
If you have a robot, connect it to your computer and then click the "Link" button to run your program on the robot. RobotMagic supports 7 popular robots on Chromebooks, PCs and Macs.
Teachers, Parents and Kids love RobotMagic:
"One of the great features of RobotMagic is that it lets us go from working with languages like Scratch and block based coding to working with real robots in a virtually seamless transition."
Len Erickson Ph.D. VP of Education Services Learningtech.org
"RobotMagic was instrumental in helping my daughter learn to code"
Rosa Douglas Parent
"I Love RobotMagic! I've build a video game, programmed an Arduino greenhouse, and done line-following with my Mindstorm."
Jane 12 Year Old Student
Robots and Makerspaces
RobotMagic makes robots come alive by ensuring student success. Students start learning skills with guided challenges in simulated environments before progressing to more difficult challenges in the real world. Robot actuators and sensors are accurately modeled to support easy transition between simulated and real-world work. Teachers can focus their attention on small group activities with real robots while the rest of the class learn skills in the simulator. RobotMagic supports the Lego Mindstorm NXT, the Scribbler and the Aseba Thymio robots.
3D Printer and Content
Make anything you want! Construct colorful objects in your browser and watch the 3D printer as it builds what you designed in seconds. You can also design mechanical contraptions and bring them to life with gears and motors: clocks, differentials, analog computers. Shape and pose a human figure however you want and then animate it to create realistic movements like dance, sports and more. Achieve realistic movements by coordinating joints. In the Robot worlds you can combine multiple robots and 3D content for even more fun!
Drag blocks together to make the robots do what you want.
Change block parameters to change their behavior.
Click the "Run" button or the "Start" block to run your code
Click the "Step" button to run your code one block at a time
Use "Loop" blocks to repeat actions
Use the "If" block to take different actions. Click its "star" icon to add "else if" and "else" branches
Store numbers in named variables to make your code more powerful
Structure your program with procedures to write more complex code.
Click the "Link" button to load your code to a robot.
Breakpoints let you pause program execution wherever you want. Set as many breakpoints as you want!
RobotMagic combines an innovative 3D environment with an advanced online learning system to improve STEM education. With this online learning system, teachers can easily manage classes and guide student learning via personalized workbooks. Interactive content modules known as chapters and activities can be used as is, customized, or created from scratch. Student achievement is continually tracked and can be analyzed using graphs or exported to other systems.
Class enrollment is made simple by letting students register using class codes. Students can switch between multiple classes. Teachers have powerful tools to manage and analyze their classes.
Students work through personalized workbooks at their own pace to optimize STEM learning. Progress is tracked and students are guided to success with points and leaderboards. Teachers can manage workbook content by selecting from existing chapters, customizing them, or creating their own.
Chapters organize educational content for student success. You can reuse existing chapters or adapt/create content with our powerful browser-based tool that lets you easily arrange videos, quizzes, RobotMagic activities, and text content on individually personalized pages.
RobotMagic activies are interactive, guided challenges that teach students STEM skills. Students are guided by a series of prompts toward success. They can access hints and demonstrations on how to complete actions. Teachers can create these activities using our online tool or reuse/adapt existing content.
Intuitive graphs help teachers understand their student's learning progress. Teachers can drill down from a class overview to students or activities and to particular skills.
