Funding Ideas for a Robotics Program:

(1) We have a list of·Grant Resources for Robotics.

(2) Carl Perkins and STEM federal funding are used by many schools for robotics programs.

(3) Some schools charge student lab fees that cover the cost within 2 to 3 years.

(4) Try crowd source funding.  Use one of the popular websites and send a link to all the businesses in your region.  Have a contest with students to get families to contribute.

(5)  Some schools have students purchase their own robots and the school purchases curriculum.

Comprehensive, Rigorous Curriculum comes with:

  • Modular online lessons (50-55 minutes)
  • Student e-books (printable)
  • Worksheets for each lesson (Word docs)
  • Hands-on Project based robot activities
  • Engaging content-rich videos
  • Step by step instruction with 3D models
  • Teamwork projects
  • Quiz questions and answer keys (Word Docs)
  • Enrichment activities
  • Web links and Interactive Learning
  • Simulations and Animations
  • Flexible Lesson Plans and printed Teacher Guides
  • Grading Rubrics and Assessments
  • Incorporates Engineering Design into lessons
  • Career exploration videos and assignments
  • Meet·STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) objectives.

Boy Scouts -·Earn a robotics Merit Badge.




We have exciting videos, fun lab activities, a 3D simulation system, a digital lab environment, some custom software, and much more to make it easy for STEM topics to be taught with robot kits either with a standard computer lab or as online courses.

Works in various classroom settings:

  • Classrooms equipped with computer projection or Smart Boards (with student laptops)
  • Computer labs
  • Home study or online schools
  • After school and club meetings
  • Vocational classrooms
  • Individual Laptops (PCs required for programming robots)
  • Tablets and Smart Phones may be used to view online lessons and videos
  • Online classrooms with or without Video conferencing
