DJI has unveiled the RoboMaster EP Core, an all-in-one classroom solution that includes an educational robot with excellent hardware capabilities, supplemental teaching materials and a competition database to introduce students to AI, engineering, programming, robotics and more.
EP Core is the first product of DJI Education, a new branch developed to provide students with learning opportunities in the STEAM, robotics and engineering field.
Built to help instructors teach in an engaging, hands-on way, EP Core is equipped with high-performance mechanical accessories like robotic arm, gripper, mecanum wheels and armors which can be programmed and controlled for a variety of fun tasks.
With multiple ports, EP Core supports third-party accessories for customization, including smart sensors and single board computers.
With well-rounded and thorough teaching resources and a competition database that is continually updated, EP Core expands the boundaries for easy and engaging education in AI, engineering, programming, and robotics.
Jianrong Gao, head of DJI Education, said: “At DJI Education, we strive to continue to be at the forefront of education innovation. It’s key for us to invest in the next generation of tech innovators by entering the education market supporting and providing tools at a pivotal age.
“The Robomaster EP Core was designed with both the experiences of instructor and student in mind to ensure engagement around STEAM topics, including artificial intelligence, robotics, programming, and other cutting-edge science and technology.”
DJI Education is partnering with universities around the world including The University of New South Wales in Australia to offer scholarships to study drone and robotics engineering, and to facilitate the selection of new students.
The partnership aims to bring new projects and exchange programs, as well as a new curriculum focusing on engineering to the university.
