STEM Education Through Robotics
Education Kits for STEM and Robotics Courses
MINDS-i has a unique vision of what robotics should be that fuels the MINDS-i line of robotic education products. Allow your students to develop a robot using the patented quick lock construction components designed by Minds-i to be remarkably tough, extremely modifiable and undeniably equipped to achieve the best performance, no matter where the path heads.
"I've always had a passion for tinkering, inventing and gaming. The leading systems just couldn't hold my interest with their limited compatibility, durability, and power. So we invented an entirely new robotics system that is tough enough to give anyone the freedom to build anything and do anything they desire in any setting. And we designed the system to be the toughest out there to make current limitations a thing of the past."
--Mike Marzetta, MINDS-i Inventor
