Robotics teaches

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM)
all together in a synergetic combination.

It is like taking five classes in one!

Why Choose DashX?

Xtreme RobotiX is not your ordinary Robotics class – students will not just put existing robotic Lego or kits together, rather they will get a chance to Density Lablearn about robotics at a much deeper level by actually making each robotic part from scratch.

Students will keep everything they make!

Students will learn hands-on skills as they drill, glue, design, assemble, solder, and build their projects!

Xtreme RobotiX is different; students not only gain skills, they take pride in building their own project.

DashX provides challenging opportunities. Many students will struggle, and then find incredible joy and confidence as they overcome obstacles.

Children love to learn when it is done right!

Notes, videos, and links are online.
Students can catch-up or dive deeper at home if they miss a lesson or want to do more with it.
