Robo-Geek courses offer a unique methodology that helps students grasp complex concepts in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths). Robo-Geek is a company founded by engineers who would like to foster kid's confidence and "I CAN DO IT" attitude. Robo-Geek’s Instructors consist of experienced engineers who love teaching young minds the wonders of Programming, Electronics and Robotics. Our courses have been designed to ensure the best learning experience by teaching complex concepts with simple examples. Workshops are 1/2 day  (Mon- Fri) (10:00 AM – 2:00 PM)  with lunch break at 12:30 pm – 1:00 pm.

Robo-Geek is introducing  Math Wokshops (Mon-Fri) ( 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM ) in diverse topics for different age of students. All these workshops use interactive computer programs and visual methods to learn quickly.

We take pride on being flexible, contact us and we will work with you to accomodate your class and any special requirements. Price: Please call us for a quotation.

On December the 8th 2015 we organized a whole day Workshop for High School Students on Electronics and Programming the Raspberry PIs with electronic interfaces; it was  amazing to work with such a talented group. Location: MEV Innovation Centre 555 Industrial Drive, Unit 4 Milton, ON L9T 5E1 Outreach – traveling to you will require setup fees and access to work with local IT team.

Phone: 1-800-414-4109 

Booking: Please, send us an e-mail to info@robo-geek.ca to check lab availability; when you book please specify how many kids are attending the workshop, the day and time. If you need to reschedule just let's us know a day an advance and we will be happy to work with you on a convenient time. Payment: Cash/ Cheque or Credit Card Payment On-line.

"Thank you so much for teaching my son in your camp for the past two weeks. He definitively enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. He was so excited to talk about his new robot. We hope to get another chance for him to learn more from you in the future." - Proud Mom of Julian K.

"Exciting new courses for kids based out of Milton starting in 2015, Designed by engineers with experience in this area. One of the instructors a professor at DeVry, with a P. Eng in electronics, the other an honours grad of University of Toronto in Engineering Science in Manufacturing . These Kids will have the best to learn from." Dr. Angelika Koeth, Chiropractor.

Comments from Meadowvale Secondary School students who attended the RG-300 Workshop

"I really enjoyed this, thank you so much!!"
"It was a great and fun class!"
"It was a very enyoable experience with actual information I found interesting.  The teachers were very nice and willing to help.  I wasn't afraid to ask questions.  The room was a little tight though I had fun :)"
"Learned a lot! Enjoyed the circuits and programmings on the Raspberry Pi."
