What we do

We equip young people with the technical knowhow and soft skills to succeed, connecting them with mentors to design robots, take on industry linked missions and compete in tournaments.

The need

We’re in the midst of a fourth industrial revolution – driven by the rise of automation, convergence of data with artificial intelligence and advancement of digital technologies at unprecedented pace. This revolution will have vast implications on the technical knowledge and life-skills young people will need to remain valued, positive contributors to society.

“Quality technical education, alongside traditional academic routes, is essential to ensure that people have the skills required for high-wage jobs and employers can get the highly skilled staff they need.”

Sir Venkatraman Ramakrishnan
President, The Royal Society

Mission

To make STEM less intimidating, more inclusive and diverse – using robots and inspirational role models from industry to build science capital and a pipeline of future innovators.

Vision

A world where young people are inspired by the possibilities of STEM, equipped with the technical knowledge and core life skills to tackle tomorrow’s challenges.

Impact

‘How will this improve outcomes for young people?’ – our guiding question. We’re embarking on a longitudinal study and will release our first impact report in 2020.

“The programme itself is adding so much. You can’t teach what they’ve been learning over the last year. You can try to teach them project management, system lifecycles and engineering from a textbook – it just doesn’t work. What they’re experiencing working as a team right now? It’s superb.”

David, Assistant Principal, Sawtry Village Academy

  • We build More Than Robots

    We invest in the young people who will invent the future. We’re a tech charity using robots, role models and competitions to equip young people with the technical know-how and soft skills to thrive.
