Looking for a career in space?
Did you know: ‘Space data and technologies enable the modern economy to function.’
The Australian Space Agency
was established in July 2018 after a review of Australia’s Space Industry Capability, the Agency has $73.2 million in funding. Their aim is to use Australia’s unique location and skills to transform and grow a globally respected space industry.
To prepare and encourage students for employment in the space technologies sector as well as give them a sound grounding in coding and robotics we have created the EZ Robot Lunar Explorer Pack. This pack has everything students require to explore problem solving and create missions in a space setting!
Students can program JD Humanoid as the commander, Roli as the collection robot and Hexapod as the explorer.
Roli can also deliver coffee to refuel the astronauts!
Print versatile 3D parts to help the EZ Robots navigate the moon terrain and collect moon rock samples to take back to Earth! It is the ideal space adventure pack for your school’s STEM program!
The Story Behind EZ Robots
“Build a robot for yourself and have one. Share what you know and have a million.”
So how were these versatile EZ Robots engineered by former NASA employee DJ Sures?
“I set out to take everything I knew about robotics and package it into the world’s first complete integrated robot building platform.”
DJ Sures is a passionate Canadian Roboticist, CEO and Visionary. His career began as a software developer in robotics and eventually he found himself in network and cyber security, while continuing to work in parallel with robotics and AI research.
“My first prototype was not going to win any beauty contests, but it worked.”
“Using the controller and software, I was able to quickly hack old toys into vision processing, speech recognizing, autonomous robots.”
Flash-forward a few years and EZ-Robots are actively shipped to over 100 countries.
“The million-robot target is in our sights.”
What’s included in the EZ Robot Lunar Explorer Pack?
1 x EZ Robot Revolution Roli
– Simulate Mars Rover missions or program your rover to fetch objects for you. Roli is a fun and inspiring way to learn about Rovers!
2 x 2-hour Skype Training Sessions – introductory guide to programming the EZ Robots and 3D printing parts.
1 x EZ Curriculum
– the curriculum is taught in context of the real world – it helps students understand the impact that robotics will have, both within the workplace and society. Any teacher can successfully and confidently teach this curriculum, with no prior robotics or programming experience.
