Skill Struck Platforms


For Grades 1-9
Introduce robotics to your classrooms using Skill Struck’s Robotics platform. Students use blocks or Python to interact with the micro:bit computer. *The physical micro:bit is not required to engage with the platform.

Introduce your students to Robotics.

This platform is an introductory course to robotics. Students learn how to display lights, detect temperature, register movement, and play music with the micro:bit computer using block or Python code. Some features include:

Beginnings Course

Students start with a simplified course to learn how to interact with the micro:bit. Students can:
Get instruction on the very basics of coding and how to use coding to interact with the micro:bit.
Receive immediate feedback on their Robotics challenges so they can progress at their own pace.

Block-Based Coding

Students as young as first grade can begin to learn how to interact with robots using block coding. Students can:
Use drag-and-drop blocks to show expression on the micro:bit.
Use a physical micro:bit to play their code, or use a digital micro:bit to see their interactions.
Receive immediate feedback on their Robotics challenges so they can progress at their own pace.

Python Syntax

Introduce rigor and more advanced concepts like Python syntax to older grades. Students can:
Advance in Python using fun and interactive lessons.
Work through Skill Struck's Robotics lessons, challenges, and checkpoints at their own pace with the help of an autograder. The autograder will grade their comprehension in real-time.

Students receive immediate feedback on 280+ challenges with Skill Struck's built-in autograder. The autograder will: 
Automatically grade challenges, lessons, and projects in real-time.
Allow students to receive immediate feedback on challenges and assignments.
Give every teacher, whether they are new to CS or an expert, the ability to teach an introduction to Robotics.

Robotics Curriculum

Students can learn an introduction to Robotics with using structured and standard-aligned lesson plans for teachers. Students can:
Go through Robotics lessons at their own pace and receive immediate feedback, thanks to Skill Struck’s built-in autograder.
Complete challenges and activities that help them receive scaffolded instruction.
Complete standard-aligned intro to Robotics curriculum.

All of the content is fun and engaging for our students! Regarding the support and partnership, they are always on top of everything. Small issues are resolved quickly, and that is not typical with other EdTech companies.

If a friend has never coded before, I would tell them that Skill Struck is a very easy and fun way to begin learning. I would also tell them that Skill Struck has challenges that are a fun way of testing our own ability to problem solve.
