Robot Inventors

Robot Inventors is our signature class series for our older students, 9-12 years old. Students build a fun hands-on, robot project each week, with increasing levels of difficulty and self-driven design.

Robot Inventors Registration

What to Expect

Robot Inventors is an advanced version of our signature after school class, for children 9-12 years old. These classes are great for new builders, as well as those seeking a more open-ended robot-building experience. A new project will be introduced each week, as part of the overall theme. This is considered an inquiry-based class, with ample space for experimentation. Students may choose to stick with the week’s scripted project, or they can take their own path, taking a hand at turning their ideas into a reality.

At the start of each class, children will be introduced to components and engineering concepts, and they’ll review all the parts in their individual RoboKits. Our amazing teachers will then guide the students through building their own super cool robots.

In-Person Classes:

  • Classes meet weekly for one hour (or longer at certain locations). All materials are supplied.
  • Make-up classes are available for select classes only. Please email our customer service team for more information.
  • Please bring water and a nut-free snack.

Online Classes:

  • Classes meet weekly for one hour via Zoom. Children work in small groups with a teacher, to allow for ample individual attention.
  • We will send you a package before the session begins with the first 5 weeks’ materials, each wrapped individually. (There will be two additional packages sent throughout the session with the remaining individually-wrapped materials.) Pickup is available for local families.
  • Online students are required to purchase a basic tool kit for $5. This one-time purchase will ensure students are equipped with the proper tools for future classes.
  • Online make-up classes will be available at the middle and end of the session. Please email our customer service team to be placed in one of the make-up classes.
  • Please note, we recommend registering 10+ days before the start of class if choosing standard shipping. Expedited shipping will be available at an additional cost. Local pickup is also available in Gowanus, Brooklyn, free of charge, until the day before class (Mon-Fri).
  • Late registrations will be pro-rated based on the number of classes left in the session. This adjustment will be automatically applied in the cart. However, the materials fee will remain fixed for online classes, as the kits are packed into 5 or 6-week sets in advance.
