With our Starter X, Starter S, and Advanced 2.0 classes almost over, it’s time to reflect over all the hard work our students have accomplished over the past two weeks. These weeks have been a blast for everyone, so trust us when we say there’s a lot to go over!Read More
Saying goodbye to our Robotics 2.0 Program was tough (we’re still missing the awesome final projects - remember the drawing bot?). But August 6th marked the start of our most ambitious cycle yet. From our Advanced 2.0, Starter S, and Starter X classes all running simultaneously, we’re in for a jam-packed next two weeks. Check out what our students have worked on from this awesome first day!Read More

Hey guys! Adam here. We've officially passed the half way mark for our first ever robotics program! For those of you that don't know, running a robotics program has been my biggest dream since we started Kinet-X, so I'm a little sad to be close to the end. Anyways, a lot's happened this week and I've recapped it here for y'all :)Read More
Here’s our first post in a new Student Stories series! To start it off, meet Samantha. She plays volleyball, soccer, and (most importantly) is an aspiring robotics engineer.Read More
The time has finally come! Today, July 23rd, we kicked off the first day of our first ever Robotics program. For the next two weeks, students with little to no STEM experience will learn to design, create, and code their own robots from scratch. Learn more and see scenes from this incredible first day hereRead More

On April 15 at the Pine Street School, we presented our Spring ’18 STEM Festival - a day of workshops, talks, and a panel in a modern building in downtown Manhattan.
Our STEM Festival is a chance for the Kinet-X community - families of past students, our partners, and friends from all over the city - to come together and celebrate in tech education. This spring, we invited over 100 students and parents.Read More
We’re providing 6-10 sponsorships and mentorship to robotics teams from New York starting today.
This is a program that starts immediately. In return, we’ll expect you to document your work, spread STEM education and Kinet-X’s mission.Read More
To build the future, we’ll need a trained, passionate, and talented workforce, which we lack. There have been many well documented and intentioned efforts to fix this problem for a while, but little progress has been made. That’s why I’m throwing my hat into the ring to fix education and joining Kinet-X as lead investor. We’re thinking to first principles and fundamentally reimagining what a quality education should do.Read More

Two years ago, Adam, Chauncey, and I opened up Kinet-X to our first students. They were looking for a place to learn how to code for a few weeks, but ended up with something more than just a summer spent in a slightly messy room in Queens. Sure they learned to code, but they also soldered for the first time, designed plans for waterproof notebooks, visited Google NYC, and raced solar-powered cars. They were in a random neighborhood in Queens, and they’d been introduced into this crazy and amazing world of STEM. So what started as a way for a few friends to train new members for Stuy’s robotics teams transformed into something more meaningful than we’d ever imagined.Read More
Happy new year! Hope you all had a restful, wonderful time with friends and family during the holidays. We certainly did here at Kinet-X - we spent ours reflecting on 2017 and looking forward to what promises to be a huge year for us in 2018. We didn’t know reviewing old curriculum plans and testing pneumatic potato guns could be so fun (okay, that’s a lie).
Anyhow, in this blog post, we’ll look at Kinet-X’s 2017 in review, and offer a sneak peek into our plans for 2018. But before I get into that, some important news.Read More
