Mechanical

The robot is manufactured from the bioplastic PLA and consists of four 3D-printed pieces. The assembly process and CAD background teaches design and additive manufacturing knowledge.

Electronic Circuit

Design

Every Kid Gets a Robot was designed in 3D modeling software, SOLIDWORKS, by our founder.

Electrical

The robot operates on an ESP32 Development Board and utilizes a simple circuit with a breadboard that can be edited easily by the student to add more features. Students learn how to read an electrical diagram and effectively create a circuit.

Software

The robot is programmed in the open-source Arduino IDE (Java, C, and C++). It is app-controlled via a program we wrote, hosted on Blynk. For students who don't have access to WiFi, there is a loop pre-programmed on the microcontroller for use.

origin

Electronic Circuit

Every Kid Gets a Robot began as a project through FIRST Robotics Competition Team 4384, Benzene Bots from International Academy East. This project was later transformed into a project by us to create the less than $20 dollar design and to offer it to children for free.

The Make-A-Robot Platform

Fill out our form to get access to our online robot materials to make your own robots from scratch. After our screening process, we provide our CADs for 3D printing, electrical diagrams, educational materials, and more. 

We do our best to screen everyone filling out our form quickly, but please be patient with us. We will get back to you when we can.

for classrooms

Intended for organizations and schools only.

The Virtual
Classroom

With classes going online due to the pandemic, we made sure that EKGAR could adapt to our new educational challenges. Partner with us to bring EKGAR kits to your students. We will teach the Zoom class, ship the robots to your students doorstep, and offer needed resources along the way.

Contact us for a price estimate on shipping and resources.

Ready to Go: The Kit

We know that your classroom has changed due to the pandemic. Teach your own EKGAR class virtually and get the robots shipped to your students doorsteps with all of the materials needed to succeed.

Contact us for a price estimate on shipping and resources.

funding & distribution

How we are able to offer our robots for free and what that means for your classroom. When applying for robots, indicate your financial need on our form.  Robots are distributed based on both supply and need. We are currently in the process of developing a self-sustainable financial model and are scaling our manufacturing capabilities to bring robotics to every child.

Electronic Circuit

One on One

An educational organization or institution requests a set number of robots for their classroom. The organization funds their desired number of kits and gives them to their students for free or keep them in their classroom for continued use.

Partnership

We form a three-pronged partnership between The STEAM Connection, an educational organization in need of robots, and a company who wants to fund a set number of robots.  The robots are sent to the students for free. This method is often used for special or annual events.

Electronic Circuit

Donations

Via our consistent flow of donations to our organization, we provide robots for free to organizations and individuals who apply here. We prioritize organizations providing opportunities for the traditionally left behind, specifically organizations serving Indigenous or LGBTQ+ students.
