Instant Robotics

Sorin Achim is a master of robotics. After gaining a degree in electrical engineering from the Romanian Department of Defense, he served as a robotics research engineer at Carnegie Mellon University and received the Allen Newell Award for Research Excellence for his contributions to the design of mobile robots.

With these accomplishments in hand, Achim founded Instant Robotics with one mission—"to translate robotics language into plain English." He teaches adults how to implement robotics into a variety of fields ranging from industry to the military. His advice touches on using medical automated systems in health care, blending robots with artistic media, preventing the robots from taking control, and engaging with robotics as a teaching tool in schools.

For a more hands-on environment, Instant Robotics' summer camps bring advanced technologies to children. In one-week sessions, students can build their own robots, create their own animated films using Legos, print three-dimensional objects, design a video game, or develop a mobile app. The camps conclude with a mini movie festival or a robotic battle for the last can of WD-40.

Customer Reviews

My daughter was on the older end of the kids from the class. I was worried she would feel awkward, but I had no need to worry. She really enjoyed the camp and wants to go again. Sorin the instructor was wonderful. Highly recommend the camp.
