Robotics engineering. The Rokit Smart will be shipped along with your PCB. You can use the parts from this kit to build a robot using your circuit board.
This 10hr class meets once-a-week so you can practice during the week and have off-the-computer time, but we can also accommodate a twice-a-week schedule for accelerated learning if requested.

What Our Students Are Saying
I was interested in making my own circuit board but didn't even know where to start. My instructor, Arnold, was a huge help. He helped me every step of the way and now I'm planning on making my own circuit board design.
Until now, I only used online tutorials. I always felt lost or stuck and would have to wait for days for help when I posted in the tutorials forums. But with my instructor, I am helped every step of the way.
Frequently Asked Questions
What's the registration process?
Once you register for our Virtual Learning services, we'll contact you to find the best day and time for your 1-in-1 instruction that works for both you and our instructor. If you need to use a different email for the virtual learning Zoom or Google Meet invitation, make sure to let us know.

Will I have the same instructor every lesson?
To keep your learning schedule consistent, we will do everything we can to provide the same instructor for every lesson, but there may be times when the instructor in unavailable. In this case, we will work with you to schedule an instructor best suited for you. We also take detailed notes of every lesson so our instructors can provide your child with the best experience.
Can two people in the same household take a lesson together as a single student?
Every person in a virtual learning session is a separate registrant and cannot share an account. We do have other offerings to provide our students with custom groups classes, camps, and webinars for multiple participants.
Do all students have to start at the same level?
Our tutoring allows students to start at their current skill level. Instructors will assess the students skills and allow the student to start their first class at a higher level, or spend a few lessons with the student on an accelerated path.
How do I reschedule a lesson?
If at any time you need to reschedule a tutoring lesson, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 858-876-5123 and let us know the day and time you need to reschedule and we will work to either skip until the next lesson or reschedule that lesson on a later date. Please note that we need to hear from you at least 24 hours in advance to reschedule. For camps and webinars, unfortunately we cannot reschedule since these have set times and dates, but we can work with you to find a suitable replacement.
What happens if I forget to reschedule a lesson?
We do not offer refunds or credits if a lesson/camp/webinar is missed since the instructor was in their virtual classroom and that time slot could not be refilled. If there was a family emergency or other issue, contact email@example.com or call 858-876-5123 and we will do our best to work with you to reschedule the lesson.

If you need a copy of the recording, you can request it at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly provide you a copy. If the lesson video requested is a group lesson, all participants must agree to the recording being shared and we will provide a copy to every participant in the group.
