WHAT YANTRA IS ALL ABOUTAt Yantra Robotics, we proudly serve the local community by making STEM education fun, affordable, and accessible. Using the LEGO WeDo and Mindstorms kits, we help children all over the Bay Area to learn how to program and assemble their very own, fully functioning robots. Does that sound fun? That’s because it is! At Yantra, we truly enjoy what we do.
OUR MISSIONSince our beginning in 2011, Yantra’s main objective has been to offer high quality courses in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to as many boys and girls in our community as possible. The United States has lagged behind in STEM fields for the past decade or more. According to the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), which was last conducted in 2012, the United States ranked 35 out of the 64 countries assessed. Additionally, STEM fields are highly male-dominated, with approximately 75% of the STEM workforce being male and the remaining 25% being female. At Yantra, we want to ensure that STEM education is fun and accessible to all children of all backgrounds – and that kids are learning valuable lifelong skills while joining us in our endeavors!
OUR DESIGNSAt Yantra, we currently use the LEGO WeDo and Mindstorms kits, both of which can be purchased in our online store or directly from LEGO. However, all of our designs are custom built by our team at Yantra. Currently, we have over 40 unique designs that students can learn from, and that number continues to grow every month as we create more custom curriculums and the robots to go along with them. Sign up with us today to discover what awesome things your child can make!
ParticipateWe currently utilize our customized curriculum in over 25 schools and recreation centers around the Bay Area. We offer after school programs where children can use our designs, or create their own using the WeDo or Mindstorms kits. Students program and build the robots on their own with the supervision of our stellar team at Yantra. Classes last for 1 hour and are offered once per week in 6, 8, 10, or 12 week sessions. We also offer summer camps for those kids who want to continue experimenting all year long!
DownloadWe understand that not every parent will be able to take their child to an after school program. We also understand that it’s not only parents who want to use our designs, but teachers too. That’s why we offer the option to license and purchase our designs for use in the classroom. Additionally, not all classrooms are equipped with internet access. In order to make the experience truly available to all, we offer a downloadable .zip file for purchase in our online store. Download the design, take it with you into the classroom, and have a ball as you watch your students discover all the possibilities that the STEM fields have to offer.
SubscribeFor those parents who want to bring our designs into their own homes – whether for homeschooling or for extra hands-on experimenting – we also offer a subscription service that grants the user access to our designs via the web.
