BirdBrain Technologies


The Hummingbird and the Finch are the robots created by BirdBrain Technologies. With the Finch robots, students of all ages (kindergarten through high school) can watch their code come to life. Hummingbird robots allow students in fourth grade  through high school to use any materials to build a personally meaningful robot. 

Watch as Tom Lauwers, Founder and CEO of BirdBrain Technologies, describes how creativity can thrive when students use the Hummingbird Robot (and describes a little about the Finches as well).
