Introduce Your Child to Robotics With Our New Course

As technology becomes a bigger and more important part of the world around us, children are going to need a good grasp of the STEM fields.

In many countries, however, students struggle with science and math. According to the U.S. National Science Foundation, teenagers in the U.S. score well below their international peers in the STEM subjects, and they’re not alone; 15 year-olds in several countries — from Norway to Mexico — have difficulties when it comes to math and science, subjects that might be seen as dry, uninteresting, non-creative fields.


There is, however, a fun way to learn math and science while still being creative: robotics.

This September, we’re launching a robotics course for kids aged 10 to 14 who are interested in robots and coding. No prior knowledge of robotics is required; this class is designed for beginners.

Enter the robots

Robots are all around us. We interact with AI when we talk to Siri and Alexa, our factories’ assembly lines are manned by robots, and when we turn on the Roomba or play with a toy drone, we’re interacting with a robot.

Understanding the internal logic of the robots we live and interact with daily will help the next generation develop the robots of tomorrow.

Learning about robotics has another, more immediate benefit: when a kid completes a robotics project, they’re using skills from all four STEM disciplines — Science, Technology, Engineering and Math — even if they’re not aware they’re using STEM skills.

What they do know is, while they’re programming robots, they’re having fun and being creative.

We believe that kids learn best in small groups, from qualified teachers, while interacting with a supportive group of their peers. For that reason, our courses are small and synchronous — kids meet at a set time every week, together with their classmates. During class, student cameras are off, which helps them focus on classwork and keeps shy students from feeling self-conscious. They are able to communicate with the teachers and each other through their microphones, as well as through a live text-based chat.

Classes start September 8th and November 20th and run two hours weekly, for nine months.
