UK Robotix is a Canada, UK and India based company with operational centers in 2 locations in India (Punjab and Maharashtra).

We are a team of experts with complementary skills and a combined experience of 40 years. We see our role in delivering education and knowledge as ‘facilitators of information’ and not simply as ‘teachers’.

Our Educational Robotix specialist and our Childhood Brain Development expert are based and operate from Canada and the UK, while our founder is a Computer Visionary and Robotics Specialist based in India.

UK Robotix will primarily be working on two main models of delivering robotics education, online courses and expert-led workshops in schools.

Our online courses are designed to motivate and excite young learners by teaching them the skills they need to create their own robotics devices, while at the same time help them gain a deeper understanding in the application of these different areas of study.

Our expert workshops will lead teams of students in a guided discovery approach. Working in teams develops communication skills, confidence and leadership alongside cutting edge science, design and computing skills. Students will learn the essentials of Robotics by actually building themselves, rather than simply from the page, which creates an optimum learning environment for deep learning and stimulates problem solving skills.

Our Mission

“The last few decades have belonged to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of mind – computer programmers who could crank code, lawyers who could craft contracts, MBAs who could crunch numbers.
But the keys of the kingdom are changing hands.
The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind – creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers and meaning makers.”

Daniel H. Pink
Author, Business columnist, Behaviourist

The future belongs to designers, story tellers and creative thinkers, and our mission is to prepare every child in India to rise to this challenge.

We are passionate about teaching technology to kids, and driven by the concept of a STEM Education. UK Robotix will be working to develop and deliver the highest quality interactive learning which is most inspiring and inventive to appeal the young minds. This style of learning will help create the visionaries and critical thinkers of the next generation, one student at a time.

We aspire to bring about the transition of students from the current passive way of learning to a more interactive and hands on learning to make them tomorrows creators and innovators. We understand the pressure points of the learning mind, we know that stress shuts the creative mind and fun opens the curiuos mind, we want to begin a sea change in how education is delivered in India.

We at UK Robotix aims to faciliate hands-on learning through our online and offline courses which are educational withfun learning environments and where students are empowered with the autonomy, tools and skills they need to reimagine the future tech-driven world through the channel of creativity.

Our Vision

Our vision is to introduce the concept of creativity and free thinking in every school of India.

“If you take out the seating and tables from some Indian schools, even in these modern times, you could play squash in them. They are totally empty rooms. Classrooms should be full of inspiration, diagrams, models, formulas, charts and images – anything you can find to engage and motivate young minds.”
Raj is driven passionately to change this and to make education and learning a fun and joyful experience.

Raj has extensive knowledge in early childhood development, and understands the importance of stimulating the brain in a new and inventive ways to help create new synaptic connections.
