NASA's Robotics Curriculum Clearinghouse
Under the sponsorship of NASA's Robotics Education Project, the Robotics Curriculum Clearinghouse (RCC) maintains a database of links to robotics lesson plans. Each curriculum entry in the RCC database has been peer-reviewed by robotics education professionals. Among other queries, teachers can search the site by grade level, standards addressed, related robotics competitions, or keywords.
