Enrollment is now open for our community club programs.


Our highly regarded robotics and technology programs are an exceptional opportunity for students to embrace programming and technology. Our hands on programs are loosely structured to allow students the freedom to explore and learn technology such as CAD design, robotics, and 3D printing. Featuring LEGO MINDSTORMS, LEGO WeDo, Arduino, and other technology, students at any level will be challenged while making friends and having fun. We've taught these classes and hosted programs at some of the most prestigious schools in the Tampa Bay area and now offer the same curriculum as part of our community clubs and maker programs.
