My son really likes the class, instructor, and subject. He said he is going to take the same subject in next summer. Thank you so much for having online class.
I'd like to have the camp more than an hour and half.

Very interesting projects
Perhaps better organization with getting the kids their kits and setting them up. But it’s a minor thing and Robofun was very accommodating with adjusting for things.

Love Robofun. Have been taking classes for years and if my 10 year old ever has a free day he asks me to sign him up. He's a total tech kid and they keep him engaged and learning.

Angelica says it was fun and the instructor did a great job helping her do coding better and always talked about what she did right and how to do things better.

RoboFun offers dynamic workshops for children using cutting edge technologies. Children ages 3 – 12 (Pre-K to 6th grade) come to our studio on 102nd Street and Broadway in Manhattan to build and program robots, design and construct video games and make stop-motion animations. Your child will learn about engineering, coding, and creative thinking. Our work is based on children’s innate passion and curiosity and our workshops allow children to become makers and designers. We run creative after-school programs and train teachers in over 100 schools in the New York City area.
