Why join Evodyne's Advanced Robotics Program?

This is an exclusive program with the kids of some of Silicon Valley's smartest parents enrolled. They know the secrets of how the world is changing, and that kids who delay learning modern robotics will ultimately get left behind.

Program Summary

Become an expert at modern robotics and get hands-on experience by building your own AI-enabled Robotic Arm using Arduino and Raspberry

Pi, followed up by advanced camera-enabled Mobile Robots.

No experience needed  to begin.

 You will build an AI-enabled robot arm from scratch, and learn to program it without any prior experience.

Location

Downtown Mountain View or via Zoom

Start Date

February 3, 2022

Duration

Until May 2022

​Elite Track 

Curriculum Overview

ELITE TRACK 

1 seat left

Start by building an advanced robotic arm from scratch 
Learn
Arduino, Raspberry Pi 
Absorb basics of
electricity, electronics 
How to use sensors and motors together to design intelligent robots 
Learn basics of
AI and computer vision 

 

Attend the first class as a Free Trial Class

After the class is over, if you decide to continue and take the kit home, you can make a payment at that time, otherwise there is no cost to you. This option is available to in-person attendees only. Choosing In-Person, Timing, and "Free Trial Class" in the Registration drop-down will make the price zero.

 Flex Labs with Live Support

 

Self-Paced Learning

We designed our Flex Labs program based on parents' requests for students with a busy schedule. 

  • Do it when the time best works for you

  • Do it At Home, or In-Person with Live Instructor Support

What other benefits do you get?

Unfettered access to all equipment (including 3D printers) and tools including on weekends!

Guest lectures from inspiring Silicon Valley AI and Robotics rock stars

Over the course of the program, each student will receive more than a hundred components and electronics equipment, all free of charge and included in the program cost

How is Zoom attendance different  from In-Person?

Our Robotics After School program is offered and conducted identically over Zoom.  Custom designed Robot kits are delivered in advance of each new session.  

COVID-19 Safety Protocol

for in-person classes

Our business was founded during the times of COVID, and the entire class setup is designed to ensure a maximally safe environment. 

  • Individual desk per student with 6 feet distancing.

  • Each session is designed for individual learning and not a group activity. 

  • A mask is mandatory at all times with nose and mouth securely covered

  • Spare gloves, hand sanitizer, lysol wipes are provided.

  • Desks and chairs are completely wiped down between sessions

  • Extra cross-ventilation forced air through back to the front of the building to ensure constant fresh air

What Parents Are Saying

Barbara W.

He really loved the class last week and was so excited to show me what he learned.  He kept trying to demo the robot arm for me while I was driving home...  It was good to see him get more into the programming, that's been an area he's not that comfortable with, so he seems to have picked up quite a bit.  I think he would really like the 3D printing one as well.

Thanks again and stay safe!

He was excited about the Robotics class he took with you a few weeks ago, and he wants to sign up for the Advanced Robotics if you still have a space for him. Please let me know what I need to do to register him!

Meredith W.

She really enjoyed the way you taught the class and had fun building and programming the robotic arm. She is looking forward to the next class.

Anu K.

He is really enjoying exploring the robotic arm and everything he learned in your class. He enjoys working on it everyday on his own, trying new ideas and really persisting till it works!

Thanks so much again!

Q & A

Do we have to commit to the full 5 months?

No! While it is unlikely to happen, you can always pull out early. Any remaining pro-rated amount will be refunded after deducting the cost of the kit and days attended. In any case, payment is monthly, so you can always choose to discontinue at the end of a month.

Do we get to keep the kits and robots?

Yes! All robotic kits, components and supplies delivered as part of the sessions are yours to keep and continue learning with. 

What happens if we miss a class?

Every session is recorded in high quality (the same instruction that zoom students see live during the class) and is made available to every student immediately after the class. Using this video the student can do the class from home whenever the time works best.

Additionally, every Saturday from 1pm to 5pm, we have an open labs time where any student can come in-person and do their class using the recorded video, in the presence of the same instructor for full live support.

What if a student is stuck on a task and is falling behind?

We will not let this happen. One hour of every day will be reserved for 1 on 1 with students who are facing any problems understanding a step, or technical issues, or equipment malfunctions and so on. Any student can call in via zoom or be present during this time, or additionally before or after the class to have their issues looked at.

What if my kid is too smart for the rest of the class and gets bored?

"Bored" is a state not allowed in our classes. Whenever a student is visibly finishing tasks early they will immediately get additional challenging tasks to complete while the rest of the students are working on the previous task.

What equipment do we need?

A Mac, Windows, or Linux laptop with administrative rights to install Arduino, Python and other programming tools. If you have a newer Mac or Windows laptop with only USB-C ports, you will need a USB-C to female USB adapter to be able to connect the Arduino to your computer. School issued Chromebooks are not recommended.

Equipment for attending from home?

Besides a computer:

  • Internet Access to download required tools and utilities

  • Ability to use zoom

  • Thats it, everything else will be provided in the mailed kit, including a special webcam so the instructor can view your build in real-time!

Is there any discount for siblings?

Yes! Use code MULTIPLE2 when checking out.
