Why Purchase a Barnabas Robotics Kit?

 

We get it.  There are a lot of robotics kits out there.  Why should you buy ours?  Well, we put educational value, transparency, cost and support at the top of the list when it comes to designing our products.  Purchase a kit and join our community of learners and teachers.  You won't regret it!

Educational Value

Our robotics kits aren't toys.  They're educational tools co-created by a community of expert engineers, educators, and designers who genuinely care about education.  We go to great lengths to ensure our products help learners gain real-world skills to thrive in the modern tech world.

Transparency

Have you ever purchased a tech product but you weren't exactly sure what you were buying?  We openly share the designs of all of our robotics kits.  We do this so that our customers know exactly what they are getting - pulling aside the curtain that often separates everyday learners from the "techies".

Cost

You don't need expensive parts to build robots.  In fact, we encourage the use of common household parts as our customers build their robot.  We can deliver high on education while not breaking the bank because of our process over product approach.

Support

When you purchase a Barnabas Robotics kit, you aren't just buying a product.  You're buying into a stellar support community as well.  Our tech and curriculum teams are here to serve you when you get stuck.  We also provide a platform for you to learn and to be inspired by other teachers and students.
