Build Awesome LEGO Robots at Home

An online video series and community for kids who want to get the most out of LEGO Mindstorms

Have a LEGO robotics set at home? Empower your kid to build working robots without the instructions manual. Our online tutorial video series is action-packed and gives kids all the insight and know-how they need to turn dreams into reality with LEGO robotics.

Who is it for?

  • You have a LEGO Robotics set at home (or you’re getting one)
  • Your kid is excited about robotics
  • You want your kid to be able to get t a point they can imagine contraptions in their mind’s eye, build/program them from scratch without your help, and have them actually WORK
  • Maybe your kid has already invented a few robots on their own but has hit a few roadblocks and wants to improve their skills, or maybe your kid is just starting out with robotics and is completely overwhelmed

A proven, step-by-step system for becoming a LEGO Robotics mastermind

This course is 100% kid-friendly, with action-packed explainer videos filmed in a “Bill Nye the Science Guy” style and in-depth tutorial videos filmed up close in Michael’s robotics lab. This program makes it SUPER easy for kids to stay engaged and to follow a structure while learning about robotics. To increase your probably of success even further, we’ve created a private facebook group for the parents of our students (students can post too, if you’re cool with that). Receive support from the community and from Michael himself, who will be responding to pots.
