Educational Robots for American Schools

The coming decade will be defined by the largest workforce transition in the history of mankind. 

Tens of millions of jobs will be eliminated by Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, while millions of new jobs will be created.  This transition will also bring the “evolution” of a significant number of jobs that have historically not been high-tech.  As a result, people with coding and robotics literacy will increasingly have an large advantage across ALL industries.

Unfortunately, these changes are occurring very rapidly, and education has had a difficult time keeping up.

The reality is that a significant percentage of children aren't receiving the education needed to prosper in this new workplace.  In fact, a large number of our youth only receive enough education to fill the exact types of jobs that technology will eliminate over the coming 5-7 years.

It's truly a crisis.

We’re asking for your help, so we can dramatically improve the futures of more than 4,000 children annually.

Our company, Robots.Education, has spent the last 8 years on a mission to help prepare children for this rapidly evolving future.

During that time, we've spoken with more than 20,000 educators - helping them understand the impact that robotics and AI will have on the workforce, and what they need to do to prepare their students. 

We've directly inspired more than 18,000 students to want to learn robotics and coding, and have helped hundreds of schools implement robotics programs.

In the past couple years, our Founder, Dennis Kambeitz, been a featured speaker at education conferences from around the world and has been a guest on a number of radio programs and podcasts.  To date, we've helped more than a million people understand the impact that robotics and AI will have on the workforce.

We've been highly successful at inspiring children to want to learn robotics... and we've been able to inspire educators to want to teach it... but there is still a barrier that exists - and it's a big one.

Many schools simply lack the financial resources to be able to implement critical programs like this.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 to help bring robotics education to as many students as possible.

100% of the money raised through this campaign will go towards the purchase of robotics equipment for underprivileged schools across the US. 

To help your donation go further, Robots.Education will commit to matching all donations, up to $100,000.

Robots.Education will also provide Free Teacher Training and assist schools with promoting their new robotics programs to students - ensuring a high level of engagement and success.

The benefits for students will go far beyond a "coding and robotics education".  Students who learn robotics are also learning enhanced problem-solving skills, math and physics.  And perhaps most importantly, they experience a dramatically improved sense of confidence and hope. 

We have worked with thousands of children from grades 2 -12 and consistently hear feedback from educators about how they can't believe the difference.  We've had educators tell us that we've changed the entire culture of their schools, and parents have told us that we've transformed their children's lives.

If we hit our target of $100,000, we will be able to equip 22 schools with Robotics Labs which will bring this critical education to more than 4,000 students each year... for years to come.

No donation is too small (or too big).  Together we can dramatically change the futures of thousands of children.


NOTICE: 
If you would like your donation applied to a specific school or have any other questions, please contact us here  

In the absence of specifically directed donations, schools will be selected based on the general location of the donors, and school need.

Recipients of the robots will be posted on the Robots.Education website over the coming weeks, to provide full transparency.
