Our Mission

Our mission is to make the world excited about the beauty, the fun, the importance, and the challenges of robotics and AI, through learning experiences that are tangible, accessible, and inclusive.

We achieve this mission by designing freely-available robotics platforms and curricula for all levels of education, and promoting its use in the world.

The beauty and the fun

AI and robotics are the most beautiful disciplines – it’s mankind’s attempt at creating artificial creatures that think and act like us.

And it’s fun, seeing robots go!

The importance and the challenges

AI and robotics will change our world. Everybody should understand the possibilities, the current status and how much is left to do.

Learning experiences

Tangible

Accessible

Inclusive

Experiences

While most of our activity results in the development of a hardware and software platform, the platform is only a means to an end: we care about the experience that is enabled by the platform.

Tangible

We believe that to learn robotics you have to be able to touch a robot. We learn by handling and doing.

We join the maker spirit with the academic spirit: the experiences are fun, but there is also a path of academic learning.

Accessible

We strive to design a hardware/software platform that is inexpensive and experiences that are easily reproducible.

Inclusive

We promote the broad understanding of the effects of robotics and AI in society, and we want to reach previously underserved demographics.
