Robotics Academy Mission Statement
The Robotics Academy is a nonprofit whose mission is to use the motivational effects of robotics to teach mathematical competency and technological literacy. We feel that the best way to reach the largest number of children is through teachers.
Our vision involves:
- Classrooms where students learn by doing
- Content organizers designed to integrate both academic concepts and the development of workplace competencies
- Creating educational tools that simplify learning
