What People Say

“Really cool and educational place for kids to get into real engineering.”

Vlad B.
Proud Father

“My daughter has taken several robotics classes and she loves them. She has become familiar with many aspects--Raspberry Pi, programming in python to trigger different features such as speech-to-text , assembling parts etc. In a few weeks, she has learned a lot, and she started without having any preliminary knowledge. The classes are fun too!"

-Mary M.

“My 2 kids have attended several of the robotics classes. They have found them to be challenging and exciting and the amount of information that they have retained has been incredible. The curriculum is very good and progresses with their learning. They look forward to their weekly classes and I would definitely recommend anyone that has children that are interested in learning about robotics.”

Michael M.

“The instructor is great at getting kids engaged and motivated.”

Romel K.

Amazing place! Kids do so many cool projects and learn so much about mechanics, physics, programming and much more! My son has been taking lessons for 2 years and this is his favorite by far!

Yulia K.

My son has been going to PCR for a few months now and really likes it. He’s learning about software and hardware, coding and building! Chuck is very knowledgable and fun. He also opened up a slot in the early afternoon just for us homeschoolers! Thanks!!

Jacklyn H.

My 10 yr old son comes home so excited after Robotics - when he talks about it I don't understand half the things he says (my husband does though luckily - engineering minds) but he talks about everything so confidently and with so much passion 🙂 This is truly the best after school activity 🙂

Ianna R.

My daughter has been going to Plum Crazy Robotics for few months now and I would highly recommend it as the owner is incredible, he’s extremely knowledgeable and very well prepared to lead the kids in the right way. He keeps them engaged and motivated in a fun way. He takes extra time to learn your child’s pattern for giving them the best understanding of the material. Excellent way to exceed in this field as they go out of their way to teach. Even though I enrolled her as an intro with no experience, I see positive growth in her learning and definitely see her growing in this field.
