ERIK Robot

Educational Robotics Invention Kit (ERIK)

The LJ Create ERIK program allows students to build a whole range of robots, from the humanoid pictured above, to spiders, scorpions, and vehicles. ERIK’s modular hardware consists of intelligent servo motors, sensors, a programmable controller and a range of construction parts allowing students to design, build and program a wide range of robotic systems. Project activities include:

  • Languages, machines, and computation
  • Algorithms and abstraction
  • Inputs and Outputs
  • Data, variables and constants
  • Control structures
  • Testing and debugging
  • A series of open ended design projects¬†to allow students to get creative

Industry 4.0 Foundations Mechatronics


Project-based courses from LJ Create explore basic mechatronics competencies, including electricity, fluid power, mechanical systems, and controls. The curriculum allows students to explore principles for a wide range of career clusters, including:

  • Engineering Design
  • Mechatronic Systems
  • Computer Science
  • Electrical Technology

The program is completed with a capstone robotics project, combining engineering and programming on an open-ended design. Students use components including intelligent servo motors, sensors, Bluetooth controller, and coding software to design, build and program a robot.
