The Robot Academy is part of Makingpi an educational charity specialising in promoting Engineering and Maths. We have an active range of support programmes for schools which we offer for free at source. These are available to schools which partner with us to improve Engineering or Mathematics in areas of low income. If you would like to discuss this possibility please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The same courses are also available at a commercial level to all schools and can be supported through STEM grants. See testimonials.
