Popular media has spawned a recent interest in teaching robotics in the classroom. Many different approaches have been attempted, with many that focus on robot competitions. However, following the competition, students often do not know where to turn to keep their curiosity in robotics alive. This paper discusses a collaborative approach that shows students a clear path from early robot competitions through to careers in the field. The approach relies on student participation in real research and a ladder of mentorship through their academic journey.
