ROBOTS-4-U is an Edutainment business that combines Education and Entertainment for learning and fun. This business provides Summer camps and After-School for Girls and Boys, ages 7 to 17. We provide Robot Kits for them use during these camps. Additional we sell Instructional Robotics Kits for Science Exploration and Science Fairs, as well as individual learning. These kits and Instructions have been used by 20,000 students globally.
Our programs and kits teach the basics of S.T.E.M. using ROBOTS as a hands on tool, we work both in Project Based Education and Individual structured and UN-structured instruction. Our kits and programs allow students to progress at their own speed and learn new skills with every robot built. New Skills include design and building of robots, Engineering trade-offs, Physics, such as gears and pulleys, Programming, Sensors and how robots and humans interact with their environment. Yes, even a 7 year old can learn to program, we follow a success based model that encourages students to excel. but also realizes that challenges and failure are some of the best ways to learn, by experiencing these and finding solutions to the problems.Mission
Today's students are the leaders of tomorrow, we provide a learning environment that stimulates interest in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.). We encourage children to pursue their education to lead them to work in areas of S.T.E.M., we encourage students to drive towards Universities like Baylor, TCU, or UD to continue their education in a Christian Environment. We also hire Engineering students from these schools plus other Christian Schools for summer jobs and after-school programs.
