ARX ASURO Curriculum

Exploring Robotics with the ARX ASURO Robot

STEM/CTE Curriculum for Robotics, Electronics, and C Programming FOR GRADES 8-14

Provide students the next step in robotics and electronics with hands-on robot building and PCB soldering activities. Great for computer lab, classroom, self-study, or distance learning!
  • Build a Fast robot from a kitt hat follows lines, runs mazes,
  • 3D CAD models provide easy to follow step by step instructions.
  • Turnkey—Science, math, and technology teachers can teach this curriculum with just a few hours of online training. Everything needed is included. No prior experience in engineering or programming required.
  • Engaging videos present robotics, engineering, and C programming concepts and provide real-world examples.
  • Flexible lesson plans for 9, 18, or 36 weeks.
  • Projects, fun competitions, and labs with worksheets to turn in for assessment.
  • For STEM Programs: Provides foundational skills and encourages students to pursue careers in Electronics, Engineering, Computer Science, or Robotics.
  • For physics classes, after school programs, camps, and robotics labs - send students home with an affordable robot. Students learn soldering and programming with this robot.

Students will:

  • Build a Very FAST and fun robot (Global Specialties ARX ASURO) from a kit and learn digital electronics, applied physics, the engineering process, troubleshooting and other technical concepts.
  • Build a prototype to test electronic parts using a solderless breadboard, then solder components onto a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) and then test and troubleshoot the operation of the robot.
  • Program the robot with C language to move around a room, avoid obstacles, follow a line, follow a course using dead reckoning, and navigate a maze. Provide students the next step in robotics and electronics with hands-on robot building and PCB soldering activities. Great for computer lab, classroom, self-study, or distance learning!
  • Use 3D CAD Sketchup models to view the robot and easy to follow step by step instructions.
