About Us

The Ultimate Design-Driven Robotics Education Platform

SnappyXO is an educational robotics product that revolutionizes the way students learn about robotics. We are passionate about making robotics accessible and enjoyable for all students, inspiring a love for STEM education. Our range of kits and components empowers students to construct their own robots and experiment with different designs, sensors, and actuators.

With SnappyXO, learning robotics becomes a hands-on and interactive experience. Our digital resources, including the SnappyXO web app, provide a dynamic platform for users to explore the world of robotics and design. The web app offers an engaging interface where users can virtually assemble their robot designs, experiment with different configurations, and refine their ideas before building them physically. This innovative approach allows for endless creativity and fosters a deeper understanding of robotics principles.

The Social Impact

Our goal is to make Robotics affordable and fun for everyone without sacrificing the authenticity of the design and engineering experience. We believe that every student deserves to have a robot kit of their own so that they can continue to learn with it without worrying about breaking things. SnappyXO makes that possible. It is low-cost and craft-like feel lowering the barrier for experimentation.

At this time, STEM education has huge socio-economic implications.

The U.S. Department of Labor estimated that in 2018, 2.5 million STEM jobs went unfilled, which at an average pay of $85,000 per year for such jobs translates to $200 billion in lost wages.

Robotics education, which brings several STEM topics together, has a great potential to create a workforce that is prepared to tackle the technical challenges of the 21st century.

78% of high school graduates are not prepared to take STEM classes at college level.

SnappyXO strives to correct this.
