  • 6 Labs Serve a Class of 24 Students
  • Grades: 4-6
  • Teach the mechanics behind robotics
  • This Lab must be paired with SnapStack Lab
  • Stack up to 8 Labs per Rolling Base

Basic Robotics Mobile STEM Lab

This lab, which should be paired with the SnapStack Mobile STEM Lab, is a perfect introduction to robotics. This lab focuses on the mechanical side of robotics using a remote-controlled, robotic platform called The Maker ROK-Bot. The Maker ROK-Bot is used to teach students how to create mechanisms, convert motion, and design and engineer compound, robotic machines. This gives students a solid foundation in building mechanical robotic systems prior to learning how to program. This lab does not cover programming.  

How to Order a Class Set:

Each Basic Robotics Mobile STEM Lab serves 4 students. Stack up to 8 Labs per rolling base. 


Progression of Learning: 

Each Mobile STEM Labs teaches part of the Rokenbok progression of learning that spans from K-8 and is organized into 4 progressive phases of learning: Mentored Construction Play, STEM Fundamentals, Applications of Design & Engineering and Systems of Technology. This lab must be paired with SnapStack Mobile STEM Lab. Together, these two labs can teach a portion of Applications of Design & Engineering curriculum.

Remote Control Robotics

The Maker ROK-bot (a remote control robotic chassis) is the heart of the Basic Robotics Lab.  Students use the Maker ROK-bot, with snap-in motor modules and new Rokenbok engineering elements, to design fun, highly functional, easy-to-assemble motorized machines: 

  • Construction Vehicles
  • Hoists and Cranes
  • Carnival Rides
  • Conveyors and Elevators

Design & Engineering

Basic Robotics curriculum guides students in deepening their design and engineering skills. Students will make use of all of their previous experiences, applying concepts of mechanical and structural engineering, mechanical advantage, and may also apply CAD/3D printing expertise.  Like real-world engineers, students must design within the abilities of the Rokenbok Robotics system, using mechanical advantage to increase the power of motor modules, using gear trains to speed things up or slow things down, and developing mechanisms to achieve a desired functionality.

Engineering Elements

Basic Robotics presents students with an open-ended opportunity for creativity and design.  Students are introduced to new engineering elements and capabilities:

  • Snap-in motor modules attach to the ROK-bot chassis or a separate structure.
  • Cog-drive converts rotary motion to linear motion.
  • A lead-screw mechanism creates mechanical advantage when space is limited.
  • Bearing modules allow transmission of motion and power over distances.
  • ROK-bot chassis can be used as a vehicle, or mounted as a stationary engine.
