The Robot Garage works with hundreds of scouts each year, designs each project to maximize fun, and align all that we do with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). In 2013 and 2014, we also partnered with Consumers Energy and the Girl Scouts of SE Michigan to host regional robotics workshops to inspire elementary school girls to participate in robotics.

We love working with scouts at The Robot Garage. Our activity menu offers instructor-led, engineering experiences and are often a child's first introduction to robotics so we focus a lot on fun, and hope to inspire a continued interest in STEM. There is no experience necessary. We rely on the group leader to explain to children ahead of time, that they will be using computers and other costly materials so it is the experience they will take vs. a project. We also rely on the group leader to handle contracts and money collection for their troop.
