We Build Robots.
We Build Futures.

Our Vision

The Robo Hub seeks to create a world-class robotics community center serving local families.

Of course we’ve got robots. We’ve got LEGO® technologies, drones, interactive games, 3D printers, laser cutters, and other maker equipment. We’re digital and analog. We love to learn, teach, explore, and play.

Above all, we’ve got an amazing team and we’re building a community of kids, parents, educators, artists, technologists, and entrepreneurs, starting with our most important audience: kids and parents.
