American Robotics

American Robotics Academy aims to excite, inspire and motivate children about the importance of robotics technology. Our hands-on classes offer an introduction to the fundamentals of engineering design, helping children understand “how things work.” Students work in age-appropriate teams and learn how to design, build and test remote-controlled miniature robots and pneumatic powered machines. We use simple, motorized machines – all made from LEGO® bricks! – to demonstrate mechanical movements and other effects.

iPianoLab – Keyboard Club

iPianoLab Keyboard Club is the fresh, fun way to lear piano or keyboard right at school.
