In lieu of our normal in-person Summer Sessions, we’re introducing our new online summer program: Summer Circuits!
Summer Circuits are long format classes that run Monday – Thursday from July 6 – Aug 27th for 3 hours each day. There will be arts, science, games, movement, and of course Robots! Children will be placed in small groups, with up to 5 other children, and led though hours of interactive fun by our amazing teachers. They’ll laugh, they’ll play, they’ll learn and they’ll leave you alone!
Just check out some of the fun we had during a similar session we held over Spring Break:
Family Club is a 4-week series of classes in which children ages 6-11yrs build alongside their grown-up. Work as a team, while you both learn, laugh and get creative!
Family Club is only offered twice a year, so we’re very excited for its return in June, especially since it may even be better than before! Family Club will now be offered virtually, which means you can enjoy building right from your own home. And we’ve extended it to 4 weeks – more building fun for all!
All you need is a computer or iPad with Zoom to join us for the live classes either Mondays or Thursdays at 6:30pm EDT. We will send you all of the robot parts you need. And if you don’t have a glue gun, #1 screwdriver or craft supplies, we can send you those as well! If you have more than one child in this age range, pay just once for the classes but add on extra robot kits so everyone can build together!
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Thank you to all of the wonderful teachers who care for, and educate, our children. You are amazing!
A special shout out to all the incredible teachers here at the Robot Foundry, who are just simply awesome!! They bring so much joy, patience and inspiration to every class. It is an absolute pleasure to watch you in action. Thank you for all you do!
Our birthday parties have always been such a hit with kids, and parents, so we’ve developed a new online version that will make any quarantine celebration a success!
Simply put together your guest list and hand it over to us, so we can take care of the rest! We’ll send the birthday child and their guests all of the robot parts and any other party supplies they’ll need. Then everyone will meet us in our virtual party room on the big day for the a super fun birthday!
Party times currently available all weekends and occasional weekdays. LEARN MORE!

I am really, really proud of my team and honored to be working with a group so full of intelligence, drive, humor and compassion. For the past few weeks we have been doing online after school classes and have gotten really great feedback. Check out this video of some highlights and get a feel for what it’s like to do online robot building classes with us.
Jenny, the owner, has two kids in NYC public schools and found out on Wednesday that next week’s school curriculum is extremely limited which means kids will need to be entertained. We figured out the perfect way to do that!
Brooklyn Robot Foundry online! Same great class, same great teachers, same great robots! Now with special extras.
We successfully transitioned our awesome After School classes to an online model over the last two weeks and it’s been so amazing! And now we’re ready to offer these classes to even more students!
We are kicking off our new online shop with 8 individual robot classes for children in 1st-4th grades. You can purchase as many classes as you choose. Search by age or robot feature (lights up, spins, etc!), but we just recommend getting them all!
Here’s how it works… Purchase as many robot kits as you’d like and we’ll pack them up and send them to you. In fact, order 3 or more kits and get 10% off! (Use coupon code MoreRobots)
Once you’ve received the kits, we’ll work with you to schedule your child into live, online classes for each particular robot. Then just meet the teacher in our virtual classroom and your child will be all ready to create! Our classes have a very low student-to-teacher ratio and are designed so students can build successfully without help from parents.
This is just the beginning – soon we will be adding multi-week sessions, as well as additional individual classes!

We have the most devoted team of teachers and staff here at the Robot Foundry and they have spent the last week banding together (but at least 6ft apart) to help us transition to a virtual model!
We are currently scheduled to begin live, interactive, online classes with our After School students on Tuesday! We have sent robot kits for the next 4 weeks to all of our current families that had expressed interest in these online classes. Students will be working in small groups (2-6 kids) with a teacher to build their robots step-by-step, just as they would in our normal in-person classes!
We know there will be some hiccups as we transition to this new model of teaching, and we appreciate everyone’s patience as we fine-tune everything. Once we’ve perfected everything, we hope to be able to open up the classes to additional students as well.

We have gotten to the point where it is now time to cancel all of our in-person events until further notice. We need to implement greater social distancing to do our part to slow down the rate of infection.
We will be hosting After School classes online. If you are a currently enrolled after school family, we will be sending more information soon.
*If you are interested in joining an online class, please give us a bit of time as we work through logistics. We will make an announcement if we can accommodate additional kids.
All Tiny Builder classes are canceled. You will get a credit for any remaining classes in your session.
All Weekend classes are canceled. You will get a credit for any future classes.
All Parties are canceled. You will get a credit for the deposit to be used for a future party.
All Field Trips are canceled. You will get a credit for your deposit to be used for a future field trip.
We don’t yet know what is going to happen for our April 9-17th Full Day Sessions. My best guess is that they will be offered online.
