For more than 35 years, LEGO® Education has empowered students to turn their natural curiosity into creative exploration, equipping them to take on the future as the world changes around them. Students bring science, technology, design engineering, math and coding to life in the classroom using LEGO MINDSTORMS® Education EV3. Here, they design and build programmable robots to solve problems within STEM, combining their design and coding skills to create innovative solutions to real-world problems. Get hands on with the power of coding, by encouraging students to develop 21st century skills through computational thinking, as they program solutions in a real-world context, using engaging physical and digital creation.http://www.legoeducation.com
Engineering Simplicity is the enduring philosophy of Juniper Networks, a leader in automated, scalable and secure networks. In the digital age, networks are the lifeblood of how the world lives, works and communicates – encompassing schools, hospitals, transportation systems, entertainment, internet connectivity, retailers, emergency services, banks and beyond, in every community, in every government and in every economy. Juniper believes that this intelligent, sophisticated, powerful technology can - must - also be simple to be effective, efficient and accessible.
Not least, automation has become a key enabler of such technology, functioning alongside humans to create and operate networks that can scale, flex and protect, dynamically adapting to conditions, developments and challenges in nanoseconds. Therefore it is imperative that the upcoming generations understand automation - Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, virtualization – in order to take technology forward into their future. We are proud to be the global technology partner of World Robot Olympiad in 2018 and beyond, as it is the perfect nurturing environment for tomorrow’s automation innovators.
National Instruments (NI) equips scientists and engineers with systems that accelerate productivity, innovation, and discovery. From classroom-ready projects to advanced robotics control, NI is at the forefront of innovation.
With NI LabVIEW™ graphical software and RIO hardware—like what is used in ARC—engineers and scientists are designing and deploying better systems faster, impacting millions of people. Similarly, NI is committed to enhancing engineering and science education worldwide by providing powerful graphical software and modular hardware connecting curriculum to real world.
Professors and students benefit from NI’s powerful professional tools like LabVIEW, which helps students visualize and implement engineering concepts in the same way it helps NASA visualize the instrumentation on their satellites. The integration of LabVIEW in classrooms creates an effective, dynamic learning environment, from LEGO Education MINDSTORMS™ EV3 in primary and secondary schools to university research laboratories.

Introduced in 2008, TETRIX® is the only metal building system endorsed by the LEGO Group for use with LEGO® MINDSTORMS®. Developed in close collaboration with LEGO Education, TETRIX is an excellent add-on for high school and higher education, and is also available for use in the WRO Advanced Robotics Challenge and other competitions.
The TETRIX platform includes a wide variety of aluminum structural and motion elements, many types and sizes of metal gears, durable and powerful DC and servo motors, and the patented Hard Point Connector that enables the connection of TETRIX elements to LEGO Technic.
MATRIX Robotics was created in 2011 by a group of experienced robotics enthusiasts who have spent the past 15 years working and playing with robots. The people at MATRIX set out to design the robotics system they’ve always wanted and the result was the MATRIX Robotics System; a high quality, affordable, 3D build system.
The people at MATRIX Robotics created this innovative system because they believe that hands on robotics is a great way to learn science, technology, engineering and math and are committed to making robotics accessible to more students worldwide.
MATRIX products can be purchased through local distributors.
Cogmation Robotics develops software simulation tools for the design, control, and testing of LEGO robots. Using the Virtual Robotics Toolkit, users can test and program a virtual version of the Mindstorms EV3 using the exact same programming language (EV3-G) and 3D design tools (LEGO Digital Designer). Simulated robots never break, are never missing pieces, and are always available to work on. The Virtual Robotics Toolkit is an indispensable tool to any World Robot Olympiad team looking to get the leg up on the competition.
