KIPR COVID-19 Response


Free Additional Resources
KIPR is glad to be able to provide some additional resources at this time to help supplement for the regular JBC and Botball
programming that students currently don’t have the opportunity to participate in. These free resources are also being
made public for now to help students all over, who are also lacking any regular STEM education.


Virtual Wombat – 

Our online virtual Wombat can be accessed to practice writing code and debugging. The virtual Wombat will let you compile to verify the code and find any errors. It will not currently show you the outcome of your code executing on a virtual robot. However, a virtual simulator is currently in development and this page will be updated once it is available.

All code saved on this virtual Wombat must be backed up regularly. This environment will be wiped clean each night at 11:59pm CT.

See Robots Running Your Code – 

KIPR staff is on standby for any student who would like to see how their code would run on a Wombat Demobot, as built in the KIPR Curriculum. Students can email their code to and a staff member will run and video record their code on a robot and then send the video back to the student.

Free Supplemental Curriculum –
KIPR has put together some curriculum resources for students who currently do not have access to a STEM class. These are not the regular full KIPR curriculum, however, we feel they can provide some lessons and activities for students in the meantime!
