Description of Franchise Robotics Robboclub
We offer you a franchise for setting up a robotics club for kids and teenagers from 5 to 15 years old in your district or city. We encourage you to become our partner in teaching kids programming and robotics as well as to start a new profitable business.
Robboclub provides you with educational equipment kits such as digital laboratories, robot construction kits, 3d printers. The kits are easily assembled, as they include sensors which are attached with magnetic fasteners. Besides, the Scratch programming language, developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, enables you to teach either a child or a teenager to program a robot just for an hour, so the result of their work is immediately visible.
What are the other benefits of the kits devised by Robboclub?
- Easy to use
— facilitate teacher`s work and are interesting for kids. With Аrduino kits teachers can easily show and explain the basics of robotics, the work with main microelectronic components, how the sensors work, and how to adjust and calibrate them.
- Intended for mass introduction
— in schools, technical clubs
requires minimum training for a teacher
recommended for children from 5 years.
- Easy to prepare for classes and perform a difficult task as fast as in 10-15 minutes
— can either be assembled or disassembled and then programed according to the topic of the lesson.
- Open source software released under a free license
— having downloaded instructions from the Internet users can easily study, modify, make sensors and spare parts themselves, for example on a 3D printer, and create a device from scratch starting with a robot`s body and finishing with its software.
- All components are devised and produced in Russia
correspond to Federal state educational standards and help to implement uniform educational standards throughout Russian Federation.
