about us

Our classes are small in size to give the best "hands-on" quality experience for our students as well as giving our teachers the flexibility to modify the curriculum to meet our students' needs. We believe in quality over quantity. All of our lead teachers and assistants are very experienced and well versed in robotics education.

MISSION

We acknowledge and respect the incredible capacity that children have to be innovators today and in the future. We aspire to create environments where they can feel free to dream, test out ideas, fail, gain confidence, acquire new skills and develop their own voice. We are committed to support our fellow educators and community to provide more opportunities for kids.

To achieve our mission we partner with many organizations to expand our reach to as many children as we can. For example, we work with FIRST Robotics to support the FLL Junior, FLL, FTC and FRC programs throughout the South Texas (Houston) Region to reach over 5,000 students annually. We collaborate with organizations such as NASA, Space Center Houston, Girl Scouts, HMNS, Houston Children's Museum, Comicpalooza, Houston Maker Faire, libraries and more. We also have established relationships with other STEM related educational business to support each other.

 

We can provide trainings and support for educators, local ISDs, schools, coaches, teams and parents as needed. Feel free to reach out to us if you are interested in training or want to start a robotics program at your school.
