Robot Works, LLC, is a small, veteran-owned business specializing in hands-on science and engineering classes. Robot Works specializes in teaching the design, building, and programming of robots using the engineering design process for K-12 students. Their instructors believe that robotics integrates all STEM subjects while fostering creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking skills, and teamwork with the benefits of tangible, hands-on projects. Robot Works started as a series of informal summer camps in 2004, but grew in popularity and size until finally opening a permanent robotics lab in Burke in December 2015. In their lab, Robot Works offers camps, workshops, and after school classes using a variety of robotics platforms, a rich selection of components, and state-of-the-art electronics and computer systems. Their Board of Advisors consists of parents, teachers, home-schoolers, and small business owners. Senior instructor Dan Gallagher has over 40 years of experience providing analytic, engineering, and operational support to the US military and federal government agencies.
