AfroBot Youth Collective

ABYC and Instructors coding and collaborating having a blast!

Into Robotics, Engineering, Coding, STE(A)M & Tech?

The ABYC was created to give Youth a safe space to explore Robotics with peers in a Think Tank environment. With professional Engineering & IT instructors, Youth get hands on training with opportunity to compete. Our last session finished strong in 2018 LEGO League competition placing 2nd amongst 38 teams with the high score of the competition. We will begin training for competition later this year for those inclined. 

Along with exploratory robotics kits, Science-themed experiments and critical thinking missions, Youth will work together to complete and design their experience in ABYC with a Youth-led agenda. Youth are encouraged to participate in discussions, share their ideas and enhance each others curiosity to see what they can learn and create together.  

The #AfroBotLunchBox is a special portion of our day when a community member, parent, professional or esteemed adult comes to have lunch with Youth to share their positive life choices to empower them in a casual, roundtable approach.

Adults of Youth are always encouraged to visit class.  

The AfroBot Youth Collective is powered by T-Mobile and supported in part by the YMCA to provide a free robotics initiative making this program accessible to enrich Youth career paths in STEM, Robotics, Coding and IT at large.
