“Over the years, I have found that providing students with competitions and challenges is a great strategy in motivating them to make connections with their peers and to encourage self-guided learning. The Online Virtual Robotics Gaming system offers a way for students to compete against other students or work toward improving their own scores, all while honing important STEM skills. I am excited about using this system as a tool to harness students’ competitive spirits and to offer them a way to interact with each other outside of regularly scheduled class time.“

“During my time with the Robotics and Gaming & Technology Clubs, I have seen what an asset the Virtual Robotics Toolkit has been to our Student Experience program and to our students. It is a valuable resource that allows our students to have access to robotics software and online opportunities that they wouldn't normally be able to experience. Hundreds of students in our program have designed, built and programmed robots using the Virtual Robotics Toolkit and have enjoyed participating in virtual challenges and competitions. The Cogmation team has been fantastic to work with as well and I value our partnership tremendously. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of our students, helping them gain lifelong skills in teamwork, problem solving, engineering and computer programming.“

“As coach and mentor of a First Lego League (FLL) I have been using FLL challenge mats for over 3 years and as FLL has added more and more complex missions the time to allow kids to spend time on their own to program the robot have become difficult. I was looking for a way to make their learning smoother, faster and independent. I found Virtual Robotics Toolkit was extremely impressed with the product. It was so easy to use, and required no computer aided design knowledge. After an intensive analysis of all the tools for simulating an NXT/EV3 robot that currently exist on the market, I have chosen to incorporate Cogmation's Virtual Robotics Toolkit into our learning due to one main reason: the enormous flexibility offered both to the coach/teacher and the students to test their programming on a virtual playing field. Thank-you Cogmation team for a terrific product.”
