What do Lego Blocks and Mining have in common?

If you are interested, we invite you to join the fun !!!


We familiarize children with mining through playing Lego Education blocks. Within the project "VirtualMine - as a modeling tool for Wider Society Learning" a series of workshops was created to achieve that.  During these workshops their task is to build robots that can be found in underground mines every day.


The combined efforts of the design teams of KGHM Cuprum and Roboklocki led to the preparation and development of outlines that are base on which children can build independently or in small groups:

  • Searching robot(exploration),
  • Drilling robot(mining),
  • Crushing robot(transport),
  • Conveyor robot(processing).

On the website you will find all the necessary things to move a part of the mine to your home, school or club.

In the Requirements tab you will find information about what is needed to make robots (list of blocks / sets) and you will find materials (charts).

The Instructions tab contains instructions for building individual robots and complete programs for programming robots to download and print.

In the Gallery tab you can find photos of the workshops, which have already been carried out. If you want to share with us your photo related to the construction of mining robots - send them to the contact address with a short description.

In the Contact tab you will find contact details if you would like to share with us your observations and comments relating to the project.
