Best Robotics Learning Apps

It's easy to get students' attention with robots. Actually teaching students how to code with robotics takes a bit more work, but rewards students with skill-building in logic, problem-solving, systems thinking, and more. Not only will students be introduced to true interdisciplinary STEM learning, but they'll also gain valuable lessons in teamwork and collaboration. Robotics can even help students with autism learn about social cues and develop communication skills.

Check out the most popular robotics apps and games for project-based inspiration, lessons, and coding interfaces to bring your classroom robots to life. 

Robots are awesome. Creating your own robots is even more awesome. Robot Factory is the awesomest.

This gorgeous app lets children create and design their own robots from 100s of parts. Their robots can be put to the test in real world physics based situations so they can see how different parts have different effects. It's the perfect game for young engineers and tech geeks. It even picked up Apple's much coveted iPad App of the Year so how could we not include it here?

Toca Robot Lab - 4 star rating

(iPhone, iPad)

Toca Robot Lab lets you mix-and-match robot parts to make a robot that you can fly through a maze. As with other Toca Boca apps, failure is not an option. Different from the two apps above, Robot Lab lets kids design their own robot. Choose from different options for legs, bodies, heads, and arms, and then play a maze game where you collect stars. Sometimes the stars are hidden behind objects. Each time you design a new robot, there is a slightly different set of robot body part options.
