Hear what educators have to say

“The amazing thing about the Finch Robots was how quickly my students were able to figure out how to use them and make them do what they wanted — this was a major confidence boost for many of our students that were less confident with new technologies. Plus, they had a blast while learning! What’s better than that?”

- Leslie Gonzalez, Middle School Library Media Specialist, Athens, GA

“The Hummingbird Robotics Kit has allowed my 5th grade students to explore the depths of their creativity while expanding their programming know-how. This was designed for students to innovate with right from the start! This kit has done wonders in the classroom!”

- James Tiffin, Jr., Director of Academic Technologies, Rochester, NY

“The Hummingbird Robotics Kit has been instrumental in giving my students real-life skills. It’s a thrill for me to watch the teams collaborate on the conceptual design and building their robot using foam board, boxes and other craft items. Enjoying the project and finding it resilient and easy to use.”

- Deborah Minassian, K-8 Computer Science Teacher, Pittsburgh, PA

“The Finch robots are so simple to use and easily span classes. It was literally a “snap” to use the Finches with our 3 and 4 year old classes! Overheard in a 4 year old class: “This is the best day of my life”!”

- Martha Brower, Technology Director, Reidsville, NC
