Students Being Served:
Our curriculum ensures that all students are able to follow an Engineering Design Process and achieve success.

Technology Resources and Supports for Students:
Utilize LEGO EV3 robots (most schools already have enough EV3 sets to implement our program) along with our video curriculum to support students with little prep from teachers.

STEM Instructional Approach Training:
We provide live professional development training for teachers and administrators via video teleconference, as well as an instructional video series that explains and demonstrates our program.

STEM Instructional Support:
Teachers do NOT need prior LEGO robot experience. We provide all the support necessary.

Equitable Access to High Quality STEM Programming:
All students achieve success via project-based learning and gain confidence in STEM.

SMART Goal for Implementation Plan:
We teach SMART goals to students in our Invent-A-Bot / Mock Shark Tank module, and can provide SMART facts for grant writers.

Timeline:
Robot Academy can ensure a quick and easy implementation process. Whatever your timeline is, we can get you up and running.

Sustainability Plan:
New teachers can be trained in no time at all, making this the most sustainable STEM program out there.

Grant Budget:
Instead of charging you thousands of dollars for proprietary robotics sets, we enable you to use existing LEGO EV3 sets (as few as 2 per classroom), making us an incredibly cost-effective option for schools looking to spread their grant money across multiple investments.

Cultural Strategies:
We teach SMART goals to students in our Invent-A-Bot / Mock Shark Tank module, and can provide SMART facts for grant writers.

Inclusive Mission and Personalized Training:
Our curriculum ensures that all students are able to follow an Engineering Design Process and achieve success. All students achieve success via project-based learning and gain confidence in STEM. We provide live professional development training for teachers and administrators via video teleconference, as well as an instructional video series that explains and demonstrates our program.

School Leadership:
Utilize LEGO EV3 robots (most schools already have enough EV3 sets to implement our program) along with our video curriculum to support students with little prep from teachers.

Governing Body/STEM Advisory Group:
With our program, new teachers can be trained in no time at all, making this one of the most sustainable STEM programs out there. Teachers do NOT need prior LEGO robot experience. We provide all the support necessary. We ask that one teacher/administrator be designated our primary contact, but we will work to support your entire staff in implementing the program.
