Every course is a different project! Each week students learn new concepts, practice those concepts, and then apply the concepts to their very own projects. At the end of the course every student keeps and takes home their own project!
Our courses are designed in a spiral method. We introduce new concepts in each class, we then come back around to them in a slightly different way to reinforce or even relearn facts, concepts, and skills.
When we set out to design our curriculum, we took concepts and things being taught at PSU to 1st year engineer majors. We have designed our animated videos to teach these concepts in a fun and easy to understand manner that keeps students attention.
EG Robotics has a world of characters and intriguing stories students just love! Neelix, a green robot, explains everything from electricity to micro-controllers! Characters like DR. Volts, Roy Robson,Vicky Volts, Summertime Steve, and tons more help students build projects and learn concepts. As the story lines progress students learn more about the characters and the mysterious Lifecorp. Below is an example of the animated video we use in class.
