Welcome to ROBOLAB-online!
What can ROBOLAB-online do for you?

ROBOLAB-online's easy three-step process outlines the task, allows the pupil to design their program and finally see it in action!

Step 1: A task is given along with an example of how the results may look.

Step 2: The pupil can now change the way the program is designed to work with a simple graphical interface.

Step 3: The pupil tests out their theory and runs their program. If the program needs tweaking or the user needs help the user can return to the design or example tabs.

We also offer friendly support for teachers and students with a glossary, lesson plans and great technical support.

Take Control: Navigate tricky courses with the ROBOLAB-online virtual RCX brick

Real-World Systems: Learn and work with real world simulations of timing & sensors.

Simple Interface: The ROBOLAB-online graphical user interface allows complex programs to be created easily step by step.

User Feedback: ROBOLAB-online lets you know when something has gone wrong!

Sensors: ROBOLAB-online also provides pupils the chance to model sensor behaviour with our line-follower pilot.

I've used ROBOLAB-online with many children at Key Stages 2 and 3 and can attest to its ease-of-use and effectiveness. Children enjoy working in its virtual environment and can readily grasp the key features of the ROBOLAB graphical programming environment.
