robo Welcome to Robofun

RoboFun offers dynamic workshops for children using cutting edge technologies. Children ages 3 – 12 come to our studio on 102nd Street and Broadway in Manhattan to build and program robots, design and construct video games and make stop motion animations. Your child will learn engineering, coding and creative thinking. Our work is based upon children’s innate passion and curiosity and our workshops allow children to become makers and designers. We run creative after school programs and train teachers in over 50 schools in the New York City area.

Sesame Street Films At Robofun


In April 2013, we were thrilled to welcome Sesame Street to our studio to film an episode with Murray the Monster about our programming! The clip features our students as they work with Kashif Hoyte, one of our teachers and our very own automaton artist, EJ Park. Please take a moment to view it and see us in action!

What’s New at Robofun

We are excited to announce that EJ Park, our talented in-house robot designer, just published Exploring LEGO® MINDSTORMS EV3: Tools and Techniques for Building and Programming Robots. In this essential guide to learning LEGO®’s newest technology, EJ provides clear step-by-step instructions on how to build four unique EV3 robots, as well as extensive programming guidance, from the very basics of block programming through data wiring. It is a great place for beginners to start, but also covers advanced material that will challenge more experienced students. It is as an excellent resource for teachers and parents. You can purchase EJ’s book at our RoboFun Studio or online at Amazon.

We had so much fun at the 2014 Maker Faire, held at New York Hall of Science on September 19 & 20. We are honored that we were awarded two “Best in Class” ribbons by Maker judges! We are proud to say that this brings the number of ribbons we have won to four. This year, approximately 3,5000 people stopped by our booth and saw us in action. As the Maker movement continues to gain strength, we are front and center in providing children and teachers with great opportunities to make, code and be creative!

This summer, we had a very, very special moment that one of our students captured on film. The Grades 4-6 class created a massive Rube Goldberg with no fewer than eight (!) robotic parts to it! When the entire thing worked as planned, it was a great moment of triumph for all involved. We feel compelled to share. Please take a moment to share in the students’ moment of glory: https://vimeo.com/100722866

It’s Back to School season! And while summer may be over, Robofun is getting hot, hot, hot, as we jump into our fall programming. There is so much going on over here at the UWS studio! After school, vacation days, school fairs, weekend programs & birthday parties are keeping us energized. We look forward to helping your children explore their own creativity, as they learn new skills in engineering and coding!
