After School Programs – Parents

Our after school programs are one more way we continue to educate young minds in a hands-on, entertaining way.

“I love robots Mom. Can I sign up for RobotCity afterschool? They get to build robots!” –afterschool RCW student

With your child enrolled in our program they will learn scientific principles and fundamentals all centered around do-it-yourself robot building activities.

Our classes are set to inspire careers in engineering, general science or programming, all while kids are having an awesome time–Come join us!

Over the course of our classes students engage in “build days” and “reusable days.”

During a build day students work on assembling a robot they get to take home and keep. Some of these robots take three classes to build to completion while others only require one day of building.

Reusable days offer students the chance to have robot building races, learn about different types of circuits, program various robots and more. Just watch a video from our YouTube channel to check out some of the newer reusable activities for robotics after school with RobotCity.
