Five NEW Scholarships Available for Wednesday’s Afterschool

ALL OF THE SCHOLARSHIPS SPOTS HAVE BEEN CLAIMED!!! But we will offer more spots in future classes. So be on the lookout for emails from us with offers similar to this.

Thanks,

Jenny

 

It worked so well for the programming class that we decided to open up 5 more scholarship spots for girls in our Wednesday 2nd-4th Grade Robot Building Afterschool Session. As a female engineer and business owner, it is so important to me to show girls the fun of STEM activities. We see a huge decline in female participation in our programs starting as early as 2nd grade. This is my attempt to try and bridge that gap.

If you have a daughter who is in 2nd – 4th grades and think she may enjoy building some robots, you are eligible for our scholarship.

First come, first serve. Must sign up online!

  1. Sign up here: http://brooklynrobotfoundry.com/after-school-brooklyn/#S3
  2. When you get to the checkout cart, enter “WedGirl” into the coupon code box
  3. Registration closes at midnight on Sunday or when all the spots are taken
Details:
  • Brooklyn Location- 303 3rd Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
  • The girls will start this coming week (April 29th). We already had one class but it will be quick and easy to get them caught up next week.
  • We offer free pickup from PS321 and PS32. We cannot offer pickup at other schools.
  • Runs for five more weeks.
  • Grades 2-4
  • Scholarship will give you 50% off the normal price ($150 savings)
  • 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
  • Additional Info

P.S... Interested in a scholarship but don’t have a child that meets this criteria? Click here and fill out a scholarship form. We will be offering some scholarships this summer for our week long programs.

Woohoo! New Manhattan Location!!!

Hooray, hooray, hooray! We are so excited to announce that our new location has been secured and will be ready for this summer!

It is a beautiful, ground floor space right in the heart of Tribeca. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our months and months and months of searching and negotiating and stressful waiting. We are subletting the space from our wonderful new neighbors Church Street School! We are brainstorming loads of awesome partnership ideas… guitar playing robots anyone?

Where is it? 72 Warren Street (between West Broadway and Greenwich) in Tribeca.

When will we be open? We will be closed for a few weeks in May but will definitely be up and running by June 1st… maybe even sooner! We will officially close our existing 528 Canal Street location on April 30th.

Manhattan summer sessions are now posted!
