Educators - Tomorrow's Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge

Tomorrow's Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge

 

Background

The Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge immerses young people in real-world engineering, technology and computing challenges as students learn how to build, program and control autonomous LEGO robots in school, or at after-school clubs, over the course of a term.

The challenge involves using these skills to complete a series of short "aviation" missions in teams using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets. Teamwork, robots, design, discovery, fun and loads of LEGO are all part of the mix, as are real-world challenges, teacher support and some great prizes. From speed racing to humanitarian aid, they’ll demonstrate their skills at challenges held around the country. Teams also research and present their own solution to a contemporary engineering problem developed with support from the Royal Air Force and Rolls-Royce.

The aim of the challenge is to inspire pupils to consider a career in engineering by giving students experience of robotics engineering, computing and software programming. Careers information is embedded in the activity to expand students’ perceptions of engineering careers.

The Tomorrow's Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge is led by EngineeringUK and the Helsington Foundation in partnership with the RAF and the support of Rolls-Royce and the Reece Foundation.
