Robotics & Programming

WITH ARDUINO

ROBOTICS IS THE FUTURE

As technology evolves ever more quickly in all aspects of modern living, it is important that the next generation know as much as possible about design, electronics, programming and integration in order to stay competitive. This is why robotics is becoming increasingly important at all levels of education.

Watch former U.S. President Bill Clinton discuss the future and ROBOTICS:

Enrichment is for Everyone!

Enrichment makes a subject more meaningful and more rewarding for everybody. Why wouldn’t it? It allows us to look at whatever we’re doing  in more depth and get to the bottom of it…to own it. All humans can benefit from enrichment and it can give us all opportunities to explore and use our imagination. 

We believe that parents and other forms of human beings can enjoy this course with or without their kids, even if they have some. It’s a great way to interact and enjoy working with other people.

This is an Enrichment program because it doesn’t just give you a kit to assemble with instructions. It’s up to you to learn the skills and understanding required to build any robot, and get a grip on the brave new world in which we live. Maybe you’ll be inspired to choose a career in this rich and rewarding field.
