It's easy to support the Robotics Club! Shop for the holidays with Eduporium and the AHS Robotics Club will earn a portion of the proceeds. What is Eduporium?

Eduporium, your startup neighbor in Watertown, is a vision-driven technology reseller. We view technology skills as necessary literacy in the 21st century. However, the virtual reality created by modern technology can be addictive and oftentimes tends to replace the real world. In order to bring students back to reality, learning to improve it inventively, Eduporium specifically selects technologies that enhance the 21st century skills commonly referred to as "The 4 C's": Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Communication. We search all over the world for the best and newest innovative technology. Our mission is to promote and deliver exciting new technology to students and to the entire K-12 school community.

To better introduce this technology to schools, we have created a “friendly tech petting zoo” -- a very cool technology collection presented to students in a hands-on demonstration. Our workshops provide rich content to support exploration, discovery and creativity, broaden students’ minds and foster STEAM education. We work with teachers, after-school programs, camps and clubs offering academic discounts for every student and their family and assisting schools in their fundraising efforts.
