Our programs are designed for Greater New Orleans charter schools and after-school organizations who work with youth ages 8-15.
Our after-school program offers a streamlined path for schools to bring robotics to their students, eliminating the logistical and financial barriers associated with starting a program from scratch.
These programs run twice a year (fall and spring) for 8-10 weeks. Sessions are usually twice a week for approximately 2 hours each, depending on school schedule and program availability.
We source LEGO robotics equipment from teams and suppliers. We use these to create robotics kits, which we loan for free to our partners.
We’ve designed a series of open-source lesson plans for our program, which introduces students to robotics over the course of 8-10 weeks.
Through the Center for Public Service at Tulane University, we recruit Tulane student volunteers who facilitate robotics programming and mentor students.
In School Need to Try Robotics Out (INTRO) is RoboRecovery’s in-school program. INTRO provides free, one-time in-class activities to local schools as a way for schools to test robotics education in their classrooms, without the immediate commitment of a semester-long after-school program.
These programs can last anywhere from 45-90 minutes and introduce students to the basics of coding and robotics.
We bring sets of laptops and assembled robots for one class. Students are divided into groups of 4-5, each with a laptop and robot to interact with.
Public service interns from the Tulane K-12 Center for STEM Education join RoboRecovery staff members in helping students with coding their robots.
