Build-It-Yourself, Educating the Next Generation of Leaders and Builders
In the Classroom of the Future…
How do we prepare the next generation of leaders and builders to develop intelligent energy, food production, transportation, health care and pollution control systems?
Our mission is to develop a classroom of the future that teaches students 21st century creativity and technical skills efficiently and effectively. Our strategy is to develop an online, global laboratory environment with interactive, dynamic content delivered by a network of art and engineering students from well-known universities. The Build-It-Yourself program reflects the research conducted by Professor Mitchel Resnick’s Life Long Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab.
- National Science Foundation Grant – Beyond Black Boxes

Students can choose from over 30 playful, robotics and computer projects. Each project starts with a storyline about a social issue followed by a challenge to use art and technology to fix a problem.
Build-It-Blocks, a library of module instructions that enables students to build unique, complex solutions quickly.
Live TAs – artists and engineers from well-known schools inspire and guide students to build in a unique, online, global laboratory.
A social media site where students can show off their portfolio of projects. It’s a gamified LinkedIn for kids.
