Live Online Training

Enjoy the convenience of taking Robotics Academy courses from anywhere in the world. Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy's Online Training courses feature an interactive class where participants log in for live instruction and Q&A, and then complete activities from the curricula and other requirements as independent study. Our program supports educators in robotics platforms like LEGO SPIKE Prime, Arduino, VEX V5, VEX EXP, and VEX IQ. All live sessions are recorded!

Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy trainers guide teachers and coaches through research-based best practices, coding, troubleshooting, and pedagogy with robots. Participants get access to curricular materials, presentations, program solutions, and other resources, as well as the opportunity to become a Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy Certified Instructor.
