The Robot Mats Family of Products
The founder of TechBrick has been developing these training tools since 2009. These mats are being used by schools and teams all over the world. Check them out!
Why wait for your competition mat each year to begin to train your rookies or build the skills of your current team members? You can start today with our universal training mats. They provide every scenario required to teach all the fundamentals of EV3/NXT/RCX programming and similar robotics systems. You can use this for FIRST LEGO League (FLL), VEX, FIRST TECH CHALLENGE (FTC), Wonder Workshop (dash and dot), Bee-Bots, and any other programmable robot system.
These amazing mats feature imaginative, play-producing, images by Bill Connolly. Each mat is designed to provide just enough imagery to spur creative play and encourage your children to create their own stories. The mats can join together to form an endless number of communities and adventures! They are printed on outdoor vinyl and will last for years. You can get the floor mats in 36x36 or 24x24 inch sizes. They are easily cleaned! Or you can get a pack of the mats in 7x7 inch size for table top play! Can be used for general play and with systems like BeeBots and Dash & Dot.
Empower Mats: Facilitating the participation of blind or visually impaired students in competitive robotics programs.
These solutions will facilitate the participation of students who are blind or visually impaired who are largely excluded from these types of activities. If they do not have an opportunity to engage in STEM based programs, they will not be likely to pursue STEM careers.
Combined with development of accessible programing environments for EV3 and similar systems, we hope to facilitate the participation of students who are blind or visually impaired in FIRST LEGO League, Dash & Dot, BeeBots, SumoBots, and similar table-top robotics challenges.
