Robotic Mindset Laboratory  

  |   NY  

  
 
We offer Robotics classes for kids from beginner level to advanced level, in a laboratory environment where they are involved in hands-on building. They learn to build models on their own, that are structurally sound and functional.
I find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in the work that precedes what the world calls success.
- Thomas A. Edison
 
Robotics in our labs... 
 
Beginner
Explore various parts and pieces that are used in building, and try building small structures. Building confidence along with knowledge.
Intermediate
Work with the parts and pieces to create mechanical sturctures that are similar to real-world machines. A more practical look into structural integrity
Advanced
Construct and learn how to program robots that make use of the mechanical structures. Understand how the structural mechanics and programming complement each other.
