Brooklyn Robot Foundry

About Us

Jenny Young opened the first Brooklyn Robot Foundry in 2011 to give children an immersive, hands-on engineering experience. Her unique, fun-filled approach has been a proven success and the fun continues to build with robot-builders all over the country.

Brooklyn Robot Foundry offers STEAM classes for children, and sometimes adults, all over the country from its base in Brooklyn, NY. The goal of the Robot Foundry is to share the fun of STEAM learning with children everywhere and inspire them to continue a life full of exploration, problem-solving, and imagination. We do this by offering fun, creative and educational classes, parties, camps and field trips to children 2-13 year old.

Our signature designs and building method allow children to build on their own, resulting not only in a cool robot, but also increased confidence. (Children 2-5 years old are required to build with an adult, but do much of it on their own!) We encourage creativity and independent thinking from all of our builders. We provide the guidelines for each day’s robots, but the final design is up to the student. Families can choose to register for a variety of programs, ranging in commitment from a single class to an entire semester, offered both online and in-person.

Why Franchise With Brooklyn Robot Foundry

A solid franchise business requires two elements: a strong product and a great business model. We’ve got both!

Strong Product

  • Offering programs that families want and needFamilies spent over $23 billion on after school programs alone in the US in 2021 and that is expected to increase significantly each year, particularly for STEAM enrichment. Not to mention camps, parties, etc…
  • Launching tomorrow’s creative leaders - Our projects emulate real world engineering better than other programs. By giving kids a hands-on experience that embraces trial-and-error, we’re allowing children to fail and giving them the tools for recovery.
  • It’s All About Human-Powered Learning. And fun!Our programs are led by wonderful teachers. They foster connections, inspire, motivate, uplift, and lead their students. And they’re kinda goofy too, because being a kid should be fun. And actually, so should being an adult.

Great Business Model

  • All wrapped up and ready to hit the road!Forget expensive real estate and meet your customers where they already are! This mobile business is ready to hit the ground running, from amazing multi-year curricula to individually packed class materials!
  • Uncomplicating the complexSuccessful STEAM programs require a ton of knowledge, sourcing, and quality-assurance. We’ve already found the best materials and components (and vast storage space!). We’ve tested all of our projects repeatedly. We’ve figured it all out – so you don’t have to!
  • An inclusive, creative communityWe believe strongly in inclusion, diversity, acceptance, and respect. We support collaboration and empathy. We strive to reflect this in our staffing, our students, and any future franchises.

Training and Support

We’re here to support you, every step of the way.

  • The Heavy Lifting is DoneOur production team assembles, tests, and ships individual kits for each project, saving you hundreds of hours of work. Each project is accompanied by a lesson plan for teachers, including instructions and visuals, to minimize prep time.
  • Great Training ProgramWe’ve been doing this for over 10 years. We can show you how to make it work – from the robots to the business as a whole. We’ve made mistakes – so you don’t have to. Each robot is thoroughly planned and tested, so each class should go smoothly. And if it doesn’t – we’ll show you what to do!
  • Custom Registration SystemWe want to make it as quick and easy as possible to get families signed up for your classes. We’ve designed an awesome website and registration system that will do just that. And of course, we’ll train you on how to make the most of it!
