Robot Workshop Box
Learn all about robots! Your pint-sized robotic engineers will design and create their own Artbot to make artistic swirls, make a Magnetbot and “teach” it to go through a maze, construct a Glidebot and watch it fly, and create habitats for their own Hexbug Nano pet!
This Junior Box celebrates thinking, questioning, and original creation with fun and creative projects that will have everyone tinkering and playing long afterwards.
Ask a Scientist
This month in our Ask a Scientist chat we talked coding and robots with an educational technology expert, Dr. Sharon Jones. We had a fun discussion and learning about robotics, coding, and technology!

Environmental & Educational Causes
RSE’s mission is to supply robotic technology to solving large-scale environmental challenges and to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers through our efforts. They offer a unique set of capabilities to solve some of the world’s most challenging environmental problems on a massive scale.
The non-profit’s first initiative is to develop an undersea robot to slow the destruction caused by lionfish, an invasive species drastically reducing biodiversity and coral reef health in all warm waters of the western Atlantic.
At the Robotics Academy their mission is to stimulate kids’ imaginations and creativity by encouraging them to explore, experience, and express themselves through hands-on interactive robotics and engineering concepts program.
Students work with LEGOs, including the more specialized pieces such as axles, gears, beams, wheels, motors, microcomputers, pneumatics and other parts that enable them to safely create animated and exciting mechanical movements and other effects!
