Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are working to address the achievement gap between low income and high income students. There isn't enough time, money, and attention paid toward students in these areas, especially regarding STEM. What results is an America that faces a severe underutilization of talent in lower income communities that could easily be tapped with investment. They want to learn. The question is if there is anyone who can teach them.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

At Robotics for All, we believe that it is important for students to have access to a quality STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) experience, regardless of socio-economic status. Our mission statement is: "Robotics for All strives to educate students at schools with over 50% students from low income families in the STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) field to help them gain beneficial skills which will be useful throughout the rest of their academic and professional careers." ​To achieve our mission, Robotics for All will provide quality education in robotics and will: Never charge a student for materials. Recruit qualified and passionate volunteers to teach our curriculum that has been optimized for a variety of learning styles. Ensure that every student has fun in the class and shares the love of learning. Robotics for All believes that these steps will help further its mission statement.

We teach classes in specially designated areas with at least 50% low income students. We have many volunteers recruited to create a 3:1 student teacher ratio to ensure that there is the maximum support for the students taken the lessons.

Our organization has many full time high school volunteers, low overhead, and a national presence. We've been doing this for over two years already, and have developed strong relationships with school administrators to roll out programs in these areas.

We will know when we are making progress when we see that the students either return, and/or develop an understanding/passion of STEM that they didn't have before the class. We also have exit surveys that students take upon finishing the 7 week courses. Questions include: "Would you come back again?", "did you learn anything?", "what would you improve". This is a more substantive way of measuring our impact.

We have branched out with 10 programs and are planning to roll out to four states. We have taught more than 506 elementary schoolers, and are planning to teach many more thanks to our growth as an organization.
