Mimetics robots for education and workshops
With experience bringing technology to over 13,000 children, Mimetics’ develops unique robots, workshops, and support materials optimized for educational use by schools, organizations, and community groups.
Welcome to the Mimetics site! It’s currently under redevelopment so here is a handy overview of what we offer:
Aegir 2 is the first affordable robot developed with a working spectrometer bringing the ability to do real science into your hands. It is built on a powerful 32-bit processor and comes with all-aspect object and ranging sensors allowing it to respond to its environment. Programmable using the easy to use on-robot graphical user interface, Aegir 2 is ready to use out of the box without the need for additional software or computers.
Interested in trying one out? Email us at email@example.com to be notified when it’s released.
Mimetics has over 12 years experience delivering successful robotics workshops with our community partners. These unique, hands-on workshops have been facilitated for schools, groups, and institutions like Boys & Girls Clubs and The Ontario Science Centre.
