Kindergarten students build robots (such as the alligator, turtle, train, and car) using LEGO® building blocks and motors. In the process of making their constructions move, they will learn basic engineering and simple machine principles. They will learn about electricity and how gear meshing works to transmit energy. They will also engage in pairs and work with their mentors to develop critical teamwork and collaboration skills. Students use their imagination and apply newly learned mechanical skills to either build their own creations, or follow a blueprint.
Our STEM Education Difference:
Our core educational philosophy centers around an intimate interaction with our students. Because we know that each child learns differently and at their own pace, our 'mentors' assess and monitor your child's skill level; each class they take is matched with their skill and interests. Our curriculum and mentors focus on mastering current skills then challenge each student to get to a higher level.
Regardless of which class they take, or how many times they have taken it, our students do not repeat previous projects - they are always challenged and when they are ready they work on a new and interesting assignment.

The birthday party was perfect! Robofun did everything. All we had to do was supply the cake. The kids loved the activities. There was a perfect amount of instruction and creative/free time. The t-shirts and bag are the perfect party favor.
I can't think of anything.

It started on time. Activity was okay, just more beginner than anticipated.
1:1 lesson with monotone, unsmiling, autopilot instructor was unbearable Need people who have fun teaching 6/7s Fun-free and impassive, we quit after 45 minutes, I made up an excuse and said my nephew wasn’t feeling well All black background for a 10:30 with a 7y/o comes off intimidating Have parents pre-register for Scratch rather than during class Terms like X and Y coordinates are foreign to 6/7s Breaks every 20mins are ideal for this age group.

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.

Jordan is a great instructor. He is knowledgeable and patient, and is guiding my son through Minecraft Creative mode while teaching him about electricity and circuitry. My son loves the class so much that we are taking it again in two weeks!

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.
