Robotics is highly stimulating for the younger students, allowing them to grow important soft skills such as problem solving, creativity, team spirit. In higher education, robotics allows student to work with real hardware in order to be prepared for the challenges of the real physical work.
Educational robots, as well as electronic kits, are interesting teaching tools that will help going through many topics while keeping students engaged. Since 2016, computer coding has been part of the French school curriculum, with an introduction to robotics as early as cycle 1 (spatial awareness, logical thinking, etc).
There are educational robots suitable for all levels and age groups. Use the filters (age, programming language) on this page to find the robot best suited to your group of students.
Learning computer programming often go along growing other skills such as logical thinking, problem solving through tests, modifications and optimization, problem modeling, etc.
Using educational robots to learn algorithms (instead of only a computer) gives students the opportunity develop their "soft skills":
- Work as a team
- Project management
- Develop creative solutions
- Acquire the basics of a common knowledge in technology (design, mechanics, IoT)
Educational robots are great multidisciplinary tools
Robots can be used as a teaching medium in fields other than programming or technology. Often, robotics can be a part of other disciplines than programming or technology, and can be used as a tool for learning.
Often, robotics can go hand in hand with other fields such as electronics, home automation, etc:
- Main subjects: technology, computer sciences or engineering
- Visual arts or music
Robotics can be at the heart of a global project within a school
Robotics allows teachers in different fields (technology, visual arts, mathematics) to work together on a same project. It also allows students from different levels to work together.
Robotics is a unifying theme because it is both exciting and engaging, and can be used to address a wide range of issues:
- Ecology: building a robot that collects litter
- Social: a robot that helps grandparents
- Space exploration
Robotics is a field that requires knowledge on different subjects such as:
- Mathematics and geometry (angle calculation for example)
- Physics (force or thrust)
- Design and mechanics
How can I quickly get to grips with my new educational robots?
We work with many institutions (schools, museums, media libraries). Even if we are not in direct contact with young people, we help these institutions choosing the right robotic equipment. We do not provide training but we have collected and written educational resources, which are available on our website.
Our recommendations, for each educational stage:

This gripper offers a large width, allowing your Niryo Ned robot to pick up and handle larger objects.
This adaptive gripper, designed specifically for the new Niryo “Ned” robot, can handle unusual objects that other grippers can’t.
If you’ve recently got your hands on the educational Thymio II mobile robot and think it’s time you moved on to more serious things, why not try adding some really fun Thymio accessories like the Yeti Discovery Kit for Thymio II Robot, which will show that your robot’s capable of hurtling down slopes!
With this new pack designed for the teachers, Mobsya give you everything you need to get started with the Thymio robot in your classroom!
The InterbotiX Hexapod MK-IV series has welcomed a new model to the family: the WidowX Hexapod MK-IV, built around a Raspberry Pi 4B microcontroller with no fewer than 18 Dynamixel XM430-W350-T servos that you can control simply with a PS4 joystick!
After the WidowX 200 robotic arm and the 5-axis WidowX 250, Interbotix is back with the 6-axis WidowX 250 robotic arm. 9 Dynamixel servo-motors from the XM and XL series were needed to build this mobile arm dedicated to teaching and research.
The WidowX 250 version of the Interbotix robotic arm offers a superior reach and span. It's an open-source and customisable choice benefiting from 8 latest-generation Dynamixel servos, guaranteeing flexibility and precision of every movement.
