C-STEM Studio is a platform for hands-on integrated learning of computing, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (C-STEM) with robotics and physical computing. It is
- the most engaging way to learn math, coding, making, and robotics,
- the simplest approach to program a robot,
- the easiest technology to control multiple robots.
C-STEM Studio is a user-friendly platform for using the C-STEM Math-ICT Curriculum by college faculty and students, K-12 teachers and students, parents, hobbyists, etc. It is integrated with the innovative educational computing, robotics, and making technologies for learning STEM subjects, including
- C/C++ interpreter Ch
- Linkbot Labs
- Ch Linkbot Controller
- Ch Mindstorms Controller for Lego Mindstorms NXT/EV3
- Ch Arduino
- Ch Raspberry Pi
- Ch Mechanism Toolkit
- Ch Control System Toolkit
- Ch OpenCV for capturing images, machine vision, image processing, and artificial intelligence
C-STEM Studio also includes the code, comprehensive documentations, teacher’s guides, and textbooks used in the C-STEM Math-ICT Curriculum. C-STEM Studio is the only platform in existence that can be easily used to control multiple Linkbots, Lego Mindstorms NXT and EV3, Arduno, and Raspberry Pi in a single program with only a few lines of Ch/C/C++ code. Students can learn STEM subjects by solving complex real-world problems with coding, making, and robotics.
C-STEM Studio is specially designed for instructors to organize diverse teaching resources and for students to conduct computer homework assignments conveniently in formal computer teaching labs.
C-STEM Studio is provided free of charge.
Many video lessons on RoboBlockly for learning coding and math along with Linkbot and Lego Mindstorms NXT/EV3 are available. The above video is one of video lessons.
System Requirements for C-STEM Studio
Windows 7 or above (32 and 64 bits) with 1 GByte disk space and 0.5 Mbyte RAM. It is recommended with USB connection (for Linkbot and Arduino), bluetooth capability (for build your own robot and Lego Mindstorms NXT/EV3), Ethernet cable connection (for Raspberry Pi), Wi-Fi capability (for Raspberry Pi).
Mac OS X 10.10 x86 (32 and 64 bits) or above.
Raspberry Pi, Pi Zero, or ARM compatible low-cost microcomputers. C-STEM Studio for Raspberry Pi is included in C-STEMbian.
In addition, you may also use a virtual network computer for Chromebooks or iPads to run C-STEM Studio remotely in a Window server.
