At the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems Inc (IRIS) students have the opportunity to build and program robots of various sizes, shapes and levels of complexity! STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) concepts are introduced using robot technology through project-based learning. Students are encouraged to approach STEM hands-on and appreciate the growing significance of robotics systems and 21st century skills!

Students in the 9 to 17 age group can start off with theLEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 program which utilizes the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 educational kits and acts as an introduction to robotics and programming! During our sessions students will have the opportunity to go beyond the classroom and exercise their skillset in an atmosphere of creativity and teamwork!


LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3provides an introduction to robotics for students with no programming background using theLEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 educational kits. Students will construct, program and control robots through investigative and exploration activities. Additionally, they will be encouraged to seek information and their research activities will expose them to the engineering process. They will be introduced to concepts such as coding, looping, decision making and flow control as they utilize the visual drag and drop programming interface. Students will discover the projects that offer challenging designs and levels of complexity.

Age Group: 9 Years to 17 Years
