The International Robotics Academy is a private institution that specializes in Robotics & STEM Education. Working in close partnership with various international bodies, our educational specialists and engineers develop hands-on, interactive STEM modules in Robotics, the Life-Sciences, Programming, Design, and much more. The knowledge from these courses are transferred to students, ages 6 - 16, either during school as part of a curriculum, after school as part of an extra-curricular activity, or in special events as seminars and workshops.

As an international organization, we are committed to constantly improving the educational process in the MENA region through close partnerships with private schools, informational seminars, training programs, ad-hoc scholastic STEM curricula, as well as extra-curricular activities. Our engineers also work closely with the local industry and young entrepreneurs, providing prototyping services as well as professional technical consultations.

We Believe ThatEvery Child is a Potential

As technology further integrates into our daily lives, it is important that our children understand how to utilize it, but it is imperative that they learn how to create it.

Courses Overview

 

Our inventors are split into three primary age groups: Elementary (6 - 9), Junior (10 - 13), Senior (14 - 16). Within these groups students can explore a variety of hands-on courses, ranging from Robotics to Game Design, and from Electronics to Computer Animation.

Elementary Courses (6 - 9)

Elementary level courses (ages 6 – 9) facilitate a gradual integration of students into IRA’s learning environment through cultivating three core competences: autonomy, communication, and creativity. Using classic Lego Bricks, pluggable electronics, and user- friendly, block-based programming software, students are given the time to experiment with and explore topics in mathematics, mechanics, design, programming, and problem solving.

Junior Courses (10 - 13)

Junior level courses (ages 10 – 13) offer a mix of rudimentary and intermediate themes in engineering, robotics, electronics, mechanics, and animation. Courses are designed to introduce students to topics in engineering design, systematic problem solving, research and literature review, hypothesis and experiment design, as well as time management and organization. The variety of courses and tracks enable students to pursue a trajectory that best suits their interests and aspirations.

Senior Courses (14 - 16)

Senior level courses (ages 14 – 16) offer a variety of project-based courses that emphasize the practical dimension of engineering, where students are taught how to develop real world solutions. Courses discuss advanced topics in microcontrollers, mobile app development, engineering solutions, and image processing. At this level, students are introduced to the engineering and product design cycles, and develop product prototypes by the end of each course cycle.

Educational Services

We recognize the organizational and financial difficulties that educational institutions face in incorporating technology into the traditional classroom. Kits are expensive, staying up to date requires extensive work, and teachers generally lack the technical skills. That's why IRA has developed a comprehensive set of services that are tailored to each institution's needs to facilitate seamless integration of STEM & Robotics into existing curricula. Here's how it works:

Ad-Hoc Scholastic Curricula

For institutions looking to integrate a STEM course as a during-school elective, IRA's engineers and educational professionals develop a tailored curriculum to compliment the institution's existing program. All necessary equipment is provided by IRA, and a team of engineers is sent each day to teach the class. Institutions also have the option to have their staff trained and lease the equipment alongside the curriculum.

extracurricular robotics & STEM clubs

For institutions looking to offer Robotics or a STEM field as an extracurricular club, IRA's wide array of courses and modules will ensure an immersive, hands-on experience. Institutions have the option to either implement IRA's existing modules or have our specialists develop a tailored program. All necessary equipment is provided by IRA, and a team of engineers is sent each day to teach the class.
