When Nikils decides to select a personal assistant amongst the students, he naturally chooses the best pupil, Julia. Eugene and his mates are relieved not to have been chosen, but this isn't the case for Tulip. The little blondie, who often gets mocked by her peers for being ditsy, would love to take Julia's place. And to make things worse, Julia chastises Tulip in front of everyone. Eugene thinks up a way to help Tulip better herself : she needs to believe that a bracelet composed of nanites is

Nikils has just received a robot that will teach him to dance using a hologram of Miss Melinda as his partner. He can't wait to try it out. Unfortunately, he gets interrupted by one of Wince's failed attempts to bother Eugene. The headmaster wants to return to his dance lesson and promotes Eugene to "head of school security" for the rest of the day. He's responsible if any accidents happen! To accomplish this delicate mission, Eugene reprograms Chip into a very accurate danger detector and the l
Preparing for his next presentation on "Robots across the ages" for Ms. Rose's class, Eugene digs around the scrap metal depository and finds a rare object : Robor01, the school's first ever monitor robot. He fixes it and gets a good mark but the teacher asks him to deactivate the robot, known for its lack of trustworthiness and for imposing unrealistic punishments. Eugene accepts, but when he leaves the classroom, he breaks his promise. It all comes tumbling down when Robor01 sees Nikils. The h
Julia is the best pupil in the class but she gets really down when she's given the worst mark on the latest test... and for the first time in her life. Eugene tries to cheer her up by explaining that it's just a phase and that she'll be back to her usual self in no time, but she remains sceptical. How can Eugene be sure of that? He can't foresee the future... Eugene takes this on and reprograms Chip so he can anticipate events like a mentalist. But the program works so well that now Nikils wants

Unfortunately for them, the school is subject to a surprise visit from "The Eye", a robot sent by the academy. An excruciating inspection ensues. Miss Melinda asks her students to be on their best behaviour all day long : the school's reputation is at stake. Hoping to still be able to hold their film session that evening, the students are as good as gold. But will they fool the Eye?
Eugene is unlucky these days and the fact that Chip also had an accident and now has an oil leak, doesn't help. Ruby proposes to lend Eugene her "Lucky Ruby", but he declines. Maybe he should have accepted... Competing against ZYG-360 in an overboard/speedrun competition, Chip leaks oil onto the track and ends up in a rubbish bin. Infuriated by any messiness, Nikils starts an investigation to find and punish the robot with a leak. Eugene has to catch up with Chip and fix him before Nikils finds
Tomorrow, the whole school is taking a bus to go to the GenieTech Enterprises to discover and possibly win the fabulous new robot X3000. Eugene and Joseph are on cloud nine: they know all about that robot and are sure they'll win it! But, when they awake, something doesn't feel right. When Eugene and Joseph get up, they discover the school is empty. After a short investigation they come to the conclusion that their alarm clocks were fiddle with to make them miss the bus! Is this another one of W
Once again, Ruby confirms her never-ending bad luck. And it only gets worse when Wince has an accident as he is speaking to her and concludes that she will jinx anyone who gets close to her. Eugene, Maia and Joseph take Ruby's defence and stick with her to prove Wince wrong.... but catastrophes keep happening. Little by little it becomes apparent : Wince might be right! Eugene reprograms Chip to be Ruby's "bodyguard" and prevent any mishaps waiting to happen.
Wince and Joseph are competing for the second top player position in the school football team, behind Maia. But during the showdown, not only Headro can't decide whom to pick and postpones the session... but Joseph's back seizes up. Now that he is unable to play, he fears he won't be chosen. Thankfully, Eugene has an idea. He creates a perfect hologram of Joseph around Chip and sends the robot to play in his place whilst his friend gets better. But will they manage to fool Wince?
Maia juggles a football in front of her friends... and twists her ankle in the doing. The sports-girl has a splint fitted and has to move around on a floating chair. For Maia, who is used to being in the midst of the action, this is the end of the world. Thankfully, Eugene has an idea to help put her out of her misery : he invents "Junior", a cute little robot that needs constant attention. After the initial surprise, Maia falls for the robot and won't let it out of her sight... But Ms. Rose con
Joseph, true to himself, has just downloaded a program that turns robots into "professional pranksters". Chip is intrigued and begs Eugene to let him try it. Meanwhile, Nikils finds a program that teaches good manners in the hope of seducing Miss Melinda. Everything gets more complicated when a misunderstanding occurs and Joseph's program infects the central computer whilst Nikils' spreads into Chip... Suddenly all the school robots are joking about and Chip apologises profusely for his every mo
Nikils inflicts an unfair punishment on Maia. Eugene is enjoying tweaking the school's monitor robots' levitation apparatus to create a device that moves objects from a distance. Joseph pragmatically sees it as a opportunity for laziness : no need to move anymore! But Maia gets another idea : she'd rather use Eugene's invention to play tricks on Nikils and give him a taste of his own medicine. The operation is a success and the friends get a bit carried away, wreaking havoc throughout the school
Eugene and his friends sneakily want to watch a horror movie about a psycho dentist, rated 16, at the same time Nikils receives a robot dentist, specially made to treat children without hurting them. To watch the forbidden film, Eugene must hack Nikils' box. Unfortunately, the hacking takes a wrong turn and switches the programs, turning the sweet little robot into a blood-loving dentist. The kids are in for a real night of horror...
Eugene has a surprisingly strong allergy, making him flinch uncontrollably on the day of the medical inspection. He comes to the undeniable conclusion that he is allergic to Chip! If the medical robots find out they will separate them. Chip spins the situation and tells Nikils that Eugene isn't acting bizarrely in his presence, but merely practicing for the "Robots got Talent" dance contest! Nikils believes him and gets excited, wanting to help Eugene get noticed by the jury...
On Monday morning, the only thing the students can talk about is : the test that will be taking place today during Ms. Rose's class. The stakes are high because those who fail the test will have to endure a whole weekend of detention with the teacher! Each student has their own studying technique and shares it with the rest of the classmates. But when Joseph explains his, Eugene, Chip and Maia realise he studied for the wrong subject. In a panic, Joseph begs his friends: to help him cheat!
Wince is ecstatic. He has just got his hands on a USB key that contains a program that will boost his personal robot ZYG360 and become the highest performing robot in the whole school. But just as he's about to install it, a seagull is attracted by the shiny device, swoops down and swallows the key. A game of cat and mouse ensues, as Wince will do anything to get the USB key back. The bird is saved by Eugene and escapes Wince's grip. To understand the bird's problem, Eugene reprograms Chip to sp
Tonight, Eugene and his friends will compete against another school in a secret video game competition on "Battle Robot". Eugene has built a special high power battery that should boost Chip's capacities and help him overcome their adversaries.

Nikils announces that all energivorous devices must be shut down to avoid completely draining the security battery that runs the school. Hoping they can still play th
Eugene and his classmates are rehearsing a play, directed by Miss Melinda, called "The Three Space Musketeers". All the roles have been assigned, except the villain character, "Grand Space Cardinal". Two actors are fighting for the part : Wince and... Chip. The competition between the budding actors will be fierce. To support his little robot, Eugene accepts a bet made by Wince. If Chip isn't selected by Miss Melinda, Eugene will hand over his new computer-pen. Unfortunately for him, Chip is a l
Tulip's flying chair is out of control after one of Wince's pranks. Thankfully, Eugene, along with Joseph and Chip, manages to save her from an accident waiting to happen. Tulip is extremely grateful and wants to pay him back in whatever way she can. But the more she tries and the less she succeeds, almost putting Eugene's life in danger. So Maia, Joseph and Chip make a plan to get Tulip to believe that she has saved his life... and they are quits.
In the midst of an overboard race, Joseph crashes into the central computer and gets electrocuted. Thankfully, he was more frightened than injured. But the next day, Joseph discovers he has "superpowers". He is now able to fix any machine by simply placing his hand on it. The news travels fast : there's a superhero in the school! Unfortunately, Eugene discovers some dangerous side effects...
