The Robot Garage works with hundreds of schools each year, designs each project to maximize fun, and aligns all that we do with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
We can accommodate up to 85 students in our Birmingham location, or visit your school for 50+ students, for a $250 travel fee. We pull kits, update software, and upgrade programs so that 100% of student & teacher time is spent exploring and learning through hands-on projects. Prices include staff and materials. Chaperones are welcome and teachers are required to attend.
If you're looking for a new way to engage students, we've found that with LEGO, robots, really fun projects and a great staff, we engage 100% of a group. When we hear kids leaving and telling each other "that was the best field trip ever," we know we've had a good day at The Robot Garage.

“The Robot Garage provided an amazing experience for the Academy of the Sacred Heart. The energy in the room was palpable as students were challenged to use their critical thinking skills and apply the scientific method while building, revising and testing their robots. This hands-on, engaging educational opportunity was fun and empowering.”
Michele Allison – Academy of the Sacred Heart Educator
"It was absolutely wonderful. Perfect for our curriculum, well-organized, excellent staff....I could go on and on."
Jennifer Tuomi - Quarton Elementary School
