Welcome to Robotics for Fun!
While teaching robotics at the Chabot Space and Science Center, Harvard University graduate Jutiki Gunter, was amazed by the excitement the children showed while building robots in his class. Realizing how few educational outlets existed for children to learn robotics, Jutiki conceived the idea of creating a space in which children could build robots, and expand their math and science skills.
Robotics for Fun was established in 2004. The program provides a year-round learning environment for children in all aspects of robotics. Since we first opened our doors, children come to class excited and ready to learn. Parents literally have to pull them away from their projects at the end of the day.
We believe that young children can learn at a college and professional level, if given the chance.
At Robotics for Fun they have the chance!
“I do have to say I am so delighted that Christina has the opportunity to take a robotics course customized for children! How many kids in the U.S. have access to workshops where they can engineer robots, from developing the prototypes to working with the underlying code and engineering? I know little kids can love robotics and can also try one’s patience at times, yet although they may not be aware of it now, they are developing technical and project planning skills that will stand them in very good stead in several years time. Thank you so much for offering all of this to them!”
