"Machine Science kits set the standard for teaching robotics and engineering. We use them with many high school outreach programs."
Ed Moriarty, Instructor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"The Machine Science kits are an excellent way to introduce kids to electronics. The directions are easy to follow, and it's amazing how many different projects you can build with a handful of little parts. If you want to ignite a student's interest in electronics and/or programming, this is a great place to start!"
Celeste Baine, Director, Engineering Education Service Center
"Machine Science programs are popular and consistently well-received at
the Museum of Science, Boston."
David Rabkin, Vice President for Innovation, Museum of Science Boston
"Our robotics class was an outstanding success. There is a wait list to enter the class and we are opening up an upscale robotics class in high school. Because of the
quality of your product, we will be buying more robot kits from you."
David Bouwsma, Computer Teacher, Westminster Christian Academy
"The course is going great and your website is wonderful. The students really love it -- it's easy to follow, they feel a real sense of accomplishment when they finish something (get an LED to light up, getting some code to run, etc.), and they're learning a lot."
Dominic Manzo, Science Teacher, Noble and Greenough School
“Machine Science’s on-line programming environment is a major breakthrough for educational robotics.”
Fred Martin, Associate Professor, Computer Science, University of Massachusetts Lowell
"We chose the Machine Science Breadboard Microcontroller Starter Kits to help us integrate a practical, hands-on experience into our Engineering Problem Solving and Computation course, which is required for all students majoring in engineering at Northeastern. The kits provide everything students need in one compact package, so we can run the activities right in the computer lab. The students enjoy following the tutorials, working with LEDs, LCDs, speakers, switches, and sensors, and learning how software can be used to control electronic systems. It is great to see them go from being scared of touching the wires to creating systems that their programs control. This is a fabulous addition to our first-year program!"
Susan Freeman, Senior Academic Specialist, Northeastern University
"At Tufts University, we make extensive use of the LEGO NXT for undergraduate engineering instruction and outreach to K-12 schools. Machine Science's kits help extend that work to let students see what's going on at the circuit level, and make the transition from graphical programming environment to text-based C programming."
Chris Rogers, Director, Center for Engineering Education Outreach, Tufts University
