Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) has a number of free online materials from their Robotics Academy. The programs, designed to spark interest in robotics among younger students, are known as FIRE, for Fostering Innovation through Robotics Exploration. The program’s mission is to “use the motivational effects of robotics to excite students about science and technology.”

The tutorials include coverage of the Vex Robotics products and LEGO Mindstorm products as well as general topics related to robot development.
