Your Go-To Resource for STEM and Robotics

Dedicating over 4,000 hours, leading 3 teams to multiple world and district championships, resulting in dozens of awards and trophies in STEM and robotics, we are very proud to say that we have a system that works.

Learning and Teaching STEM and Robotics is easier with MechaSpark. Struggle no more!

The lessons you see comes from our time-tested focus on answering students’ implicit question of “so what?” Research has proven that demonstrations provides a 3x knowledge retention and a learn by doing education provides 10x. We bring these and other research-backed techniques where possible to our classes so the students gets the most out of their time and experiences a richer education.

How It Works

Integrative Learning

Each class introduces concepts and strategies that grow the student’s toolbox of knowledge. Each lesson presents information using multiple methods, giving the best opportunity for retention.

Easy to Understand Lessons

We get straight to the point without the confusing detours. By bringing the latest techniques in learning, students will see greater understanding in less time.

Hands-On Activities

A learn-by-doing helps to reinforce and solidify learning concepts. Situations presented are based on real world events that makes learning relatable.
