Expanding access

Parents and students need more equitable access to robotics learning in-school, after-school, and during summer months. That’s why we offer free and affordable programs throughout the year in both in-person and online formats.

We also collaborate with local organizations to reach new communities of learners, including vulnerable populations.

Sustainable innovation

We’re committed to not only using technology responsibly but also sustainably. EcoRobotik students learn how to innovate in sustainable ways and explore how humans AND robots can make lasting environmental change.

Meet the founder & ecorobotik’s CEO

My journey as a teacher, mom, and robotics advocate

As a 10-year teacher and mom to twin teenagers, I understand the challenges parents face in getting their kids involved in meaningful learning. Future job markets demand STEM skills, and robotics has never been more important than now.

Yet, many of the available robotics programs can cost families and schools thousands upon thousands of dollars. I started Ecorobotik to make top-quality robotics programs more accessible and affordable for students around the globe.
