Every Kid Gets a Robot

A robot that we developed for $18.95 to increase accessibility to STEAM materials to increase learning.

Our robots began as a project through FIRST Robotics Competition Team 4384, Benzene Bots from International Academy East. Our 1.0-2.0 robots began at $50 dollars and morphed into the 3.0 design that you see here for $18.95. Designed in 3D design software, SOLIDWORKS, the robot chassis, and wheels are 3D-printed. Our founder, Danielle Boyer, developed this robot to increase access to affordable STEAM educational materials. She was upset with how expensive most educational robots are and wanted to make products more available for everyone. The robots work with kids in grades K-12 and teach valuable Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science skills. Our global STEAM community has banded together to help us print and distribute hundreds of robots, with most of them produced by Danielle. 

How do I Bring the Robots to my School or Organization?

We have a few options. 

Independent Access 

 

On Your Own: Get instant free access to our robot materials to make your own robots from scratch. You'll have to sign a letter of intent and let us know where the robots are going, but other than that you will get a password to all of our CADs, electrical diagrams, and educational materials! This option is great if you have your own 3D printer or want to make a large number of robots in a short period of time.


 

Ready to Go

 

The Kit: Get a kit with all of the materials to make the robot right then and there. We will send you a bag with all of the materials. There are limited quantities. Each kit will cost $18.95 plus shipping and expedited parts. Due to high order numbers, we do not solder the motors or motor controller ourselves.

or,


Fully Assembled: You can order fully assembled robots from us. This option works well if you want to use the robots in the classroom to program and drive around or if you have very young students. We have the highest amount of orders for this option and there is usually a lead time of a couple of months because our founder, Danielle Boyer, hand makes all of the robots herself. The robots are $18.95 dollars each plus shipping and expedited parts.

We do not make a penny off of the robots. If you want to support us financially donate to our GoFundMe. The link is at the bottom of our page! Every dollar goes to sending robots to kids for free.
