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!

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.
Our Coronavirus Public Statement clearly outlines our approach to what is happening and how if will affect our classes!
We’re spending a lot more time washing hands and surfaces and anything else we can, but otherwise it’s business as usual here are the Robot Foundry!
We will continue to check in with the CDC, the NYC DOE and the NYC DOH for updates on the spread of COVID-19 in our area and will follow their guidance on canceling any classes or events.
Our Tiny Builders classes are an amazing way to introduce basic STEAM concepts to children ages 2.5-4yrs old. The classes offer a unique story-based approach to educating, combined with hands-on learning, resulting in a super entertaining and engaging experience for little ones. Young makers have a great time building their very own robots, with the help of their parent/caregiver, which they take home each week for continued fun.
Tiny Builders classes feature a new project each week, with no prior experience necessary. And with prorating available, it’s always a good time to start!
