Robotics & Automation
From vending machines and automatic doors to robotic vacuum cleaners and Google cars – robots are part of everyday life. Give your child the opportunity to gain the necessary skills to be the mastermind of their own creation, and gain access to this fast growing industry. Working in small groups of 4-6 students led by trained staff members, participants in our robotics courses will acquire the mechanical skills and programming knowledge to design, build, and control their own robot. At the conclusion of each project, we host a showcase event in which all the students present their product and share their learning with the audience.
Robotics & Automation Level 1
Tuition: $135 per month
Materials Fee: $50 (includes: Robot)
In order to understand robotics, one must gain knowledge in the areas of electronics, mechanics, and computer programming. In this class, you will learn the basics of robotics by building and programming an autonomous car. Your car will drive itself and be able to avoid obstacles to help you better understand the complexities of automation. Are you ready to enter Elon Musk’s world?

Electronics with Arduinos Level 1 | *Suggested Grade Level: 3rd – 6th
Tuition:$135 per month
Materials Fee: $50 (includes: Arduino Kit)
Sensors are used in robots, smart phones, video game controllers, musical instruments, and more. They are the eyes and ears of the machines and devices we’ve all come to rely on. Using your creativity and imagination along with an Arduino, you can create your own devices that will respond to data collected by sensors. An Arduino is an electronic brain that listens and responds to sensor data, which can create amazing LED light displays, make an alarm clock buzz, and even control the motors of a robot. During this class, you will use a variety of sensors plus an Arduino, and a little know-how to build multiple electronics projects, including musical instruments, an electronic game, and a digital thermometer. In the end, you’ll be thinking like an Electrical Engineer and learning how to use electronic components to create, invent and innovate.
