Fall Afterschool Registration is Officially Closed!

Thanks for all of your interest in our programs! We have officially closed the registration for all of our Fall 2015 Afterschool Sessions.

If you are currently on a waitlist, it is unfortunately unlikely that you will get into a session. The only way to move from the waitlist is for a current student to cancel. That does not happen very often!

We will be posting the Spring Afterschool in late November. Feel free to join our mailing list to be alerted when the next semester’s registration is opened.

Summer is Over! School is Near!

GIRLSPICThank you all for a truly wonderful summer! We can’t believe that Friday was our last day of summer sessions. What a great journey we have had!!!

With our awesome staff of over 20 incredible people we built about 1400 robots with about 675 students! Wow, that is a lot of batteries, wires, motors and LEDS! The kids had a blast and so did we!

We are taking the next week off and then will start going again with All Day Sessions on Sept 14th and 15th. (Brooklyn Info & Manhattan Info)

IMG_9976Our afterschool programs start on September 16th. (Brooklyn Info & Manhattan Info). Many of our programs are full but there are still a few spots available. Check out the links above to see what we have left.

IMG_9816We will be officially launching a Tiny Builders 6-week session shortly in both locations. These sessions will be for 2-4 year olds to build awesome robot creations with their caregivers.

More info on Family Club and Weekend Classes will be posted in the upcoming weeks!

Our Birthday Parties are also filling up really fast. We launched a new and improved way to book them directly on our website (Brooklyn Info & Manhattan Info).

Looking forward to seeing everyone again in the school year!

Have a great Labor Day weekend!

– Jenny

Summer Sessions are Full for this Week

IMG_0884We have been getting a lot of calls about availability in this week’s summer session. I am sorry to say that we are completely full for the all day sessions. We do not offer single day sessions.

We do have spots available in our Open Play sessions that run from 3:30-6:30 Monday-Friday.

Summer Open Play
Ends Sept 4th
K-4th grades
Manhattan Information and Preregistration
72 Warren Street in Tribeca!
Brooklyn Information and Preregistration
303 3rd Avenue in Gowanus!

Rules of Open Play

  • Hours- 3:30-6:30 Monday- Friday
  • You must create an account before you arrive (see Open Play pages for details)
  • Open play is first come, first serve. You won’t be able to register for a certain date and time. You can think of it like a restaurant that doesn’t take reservations but normally has tables available for people who walk in.
  • If you want your child to build a robot, they must stay at least 2 hours. If they are going to just play with us, they can stay as short as 1/2 hour.
  • We cap each day at 12 kids. We don’t normally get to that number but you can call ahead to confirm there are still spots. Everything is first come, first serve.
  • We can accommodate up to 8 kids at a time building electronic robots. When you arrive, we will let you know how long (if any) of a wait there will be to build.
  • If no kids are present at 5:15 pm each day, we may decide to close early.

Summer is coming to a close, but fall is just around the corner!

DSC_7025What an incredible summer it’s been! We are in the middle of our inclusion week in Brooklyn and our Robot Vehicles week in Manhattan. We are making amazing robots and learning a ton of cool engineering terms in the process.

Summer sessions will only last for two more weeks, but our fall after school sessions will begin on September 16th in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

It’s been a blast and we can’t wait to see many of you throughout the school year for after school, weekend classes, birthdays or mini sessions!

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer.
