Educational S.T.E.M. resources designed for and by inventors of all ages.
Established in 2014, Barnabas Robotics was founded to encourage innovation in young students (grades K-12) and empower parents and teachers to teach S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) in fun and engaging ways.
The name Barnabas means "Son of Encouragement." We take this call to encouragement seriously. Robotics, like life, isn’t always easy. We aim to teach perseverance in the face of challenges that inevitably arise.
That applies not just to students, but to parents and teachers too. You don’t have to be a tech guru to understand or teach robotics! By empowering you, we hope to set in motion a chain of encouragement that keeps paying itself forward.
Our hope is that every child—regardless of age, gender, culture, ability, or socioeconomic circumstance—can have access to a quality education and be given the opportunity to learn, grow, and flourish.
Teaching robotics should be about more than just the technical stuff. Barnabas Robotics stands out from the crowd because we:
At Barnabas Robotics, we focus on robotics as a vehicle for teaching project-based learning skills. Project-based learning gives students real-world experience in developing something physical or tangible. It also asks students to invest a significant amount of time and energy into a single project with multiple phases. Acquiring these skills is highly beneficial for students and is at the forefront of current educational theory and method.
