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
A few weeks ago, 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
Our summer season is nearing the half-way mark, and it’s been fantastic so far! During the first few weeks, we have seen incredible LEGO® projects from our students such as freeze tag playing robots, sensor activated bionic hands and feet, erupting volcanos, fearsome sea monsters, whirring helicopters, and speeding robocars. The afternoon sessions have brought us challenging Maze and Collecting Games, as well as massively creative multi-level games. We are beyond excited to see what will come of the next several weeks!
We still have availability for the summer. And don’t worry, If your child loves Robofun so much that they want to do multiple weeks, rest assured that each week they will be presented with new themes and new challenges. Please feel free to register directly though our Summer Camp page or call us for more information.
We look forward to helping your children explore their own creativity, as they learn new skills in engineering and coding!
