Testimonials

Some of our Testimonials:

“Every single one of our children loved the session! They were fully engaged and were disappointed when the day was over. Professional and knowledgeable leaders who made sure all could complete tasks; supporting those less able and stretching the more able. I couldn’t recommend them enough! We will definitely be booking for next year and look forward to hearing what is on offer for other year groups! Thanks!”

“We had a brilliant, well-planned session which the children loved and simultaneously met national curriculum objectives. We had a fantastic time and the children really enjoyed the experience.”
~ Kesta, Teacher, London, June 2022

“It was brilliant to have Wojciech come in a do a robotics with my Year 5/6 class. He was incredibly enthusiastic and the children were very engaged. They had a fantastic time following a very clear structure. Would definitely recommend.”
~ Nat, Teacher, Cambridgeshire, May 2022

PrepareRobo did a Lego robot building activity at my son’s 9th birthday party in November. The kids (boys and girls) all absolutely loved it, they were completely caught up in the Lego-building and then huge excitement for the battle of the robots. Woijech was brilliant at knowing how much to let the kids get on with the challenge themselves and when to step in and help. It was enormous fun for kids and adults alike, most of the parents stayed at the party as they wanted to join in! We will be recommending PrepareRobo to friends for birthday parties and we will also be encouraging our son’s primary school to get them in for coding workshops – what s brilliant way to get children interested in coding! Genius fun. Many thanks

“Wonderful starter for our Robot topic to get the children hooked. They loved it as shown by their engagement in the tasks and the way they have talked about it since. It was a good way to introduce simple codes and to consider if/else variables. It will help them as they begin to program the ‘Iron Man’ Robots we are making in DT as the code is very similar. Thank you for a great experience DT”
~ Heather, Teacher, Hampshire, April 2022

“Wojciech led a LEGO mindstorms workshop for our year 8 children. He was clear, concise and had the children’s rapt attention.

“Children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. Karol is extremely knowledgable, calm and patient.”
~ Kathy, Assistant Headteacher, Bedfordshire, September 2020

“A well-organised, exciting way to apply coding learnt in the classroom. Both girls and boys were fully engaged in the whole experience from planning to building to coding to enjoying. This activity represents excellent value for money, is inspiring and impacted positively on the children’s understanding of coding. “
~ Gail, Headteacher, Bedfordshire, October 2019

“A fantastic day had by all. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learnt a lot. It fitted in really well with our topic about coding and was a lovely way to end the unit of work. Links to the National Curriculum were made. The workshop was well pitched for the children’s ages meaning all children were fully engaged with the sessions. “
~ Victoria, Teacher, London, January 2020.

“Wow! Can’t beleive what the children were able to acheive in 1.5hrs! LOved that they weren’t told what to do step by step, but rather to explore and find out for themselves. “
~ John, Teacher, Oxfordshire, January 2020

“Karol was punctual, patient, very knowledgable and helpful. The children were fully engaged throughout and were delighted when their robots moved! Would recommend- great value. “
~ Julie, Teacher, Oxfordshire, December 2019

~ Sue, Deputy Headteacher, Essex, December 2019

“An excellent session with some of our under-achieving disengaged kids. They were all over it and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They have already started demanding a lunchtime club so that they can do more. Very impressed and pleased. We will be booking some more sessions soon. ”
~ Tina, Teacher, Kent, December 2019.

“What a fabulous workshop, Karol went above and beyond with the pupils, he even allowed the workshop to over run so pupils could create ‘robo wars’ Brockhill style. A very buzzy environment created with every pupil succeeding at their task. A huge thank you and we will look forward to having you guys back. “
~ Jo, Teacher, Kent, December 2019

“Absolutely amazing sessions. Well run and lots of input with students, asked questions and let students answer questions, got all involved. “
~ Karen, Teacher, Leicestershire, November 2019

“An excellent day! All children from Y1-6 were appropriately engaged and challenged in their activities. The man who ran our workshops was excellent- he explained things clearly, but without just telling children the answers. I especially liked how in the workshop with my children Y5 and 6, they weren’t told exactly how to do various steps, but rather were given some information and then told to come up with their own solutions. We would love to book again next year (especially if we can get it for such a bargain price again)! “
~ Rachel, Teacher, Bedfordshire, November 2019

“The children got a lot out of the workshop. There was a good balance of independent child lead design and the necessary guidance to programme. Children really enjoyed having the opportunity to play with and appreciate theirs and others robots. The work shop was a good length and the member of staff had a lovely, calm manner when working with the children. “
~ Ashleigh, Teacher, Hertfordshire, November 2019

“All of the children really enjoyed designing and using the robots. The sessions were the perfect length of time for them to explore and engage with them. Thank you for a great week! “
~ Anna, Teacher, Surrey, October 2019

“Another fantastic workshop provided by you. The gentleman who ran the workshop was a great tutor and the kids had an amazing day. Thank you. We would highly recommend you to anyone who would like to book a workshop “
~ Julia, Teacher, Hampshire, October 2019

~ Kate, Teacher, Wiltshire, October 2018

“An interactive and engaging session, which really excited the children. It involved them using their coding and reasoning skills. The instructor was warm, approachable and professional. He spent time talking to each child, giving feedback and providing clear guidance on what the next steps were. Thank you!”
~ Jackie, Teacher, London, October 2018

“We had a robot workshop for 90 Year 3 children. The children had a wonderful time and really enjoyed being able to create a battle with their finished robots. The session was well planned and structured in a way that enabled the children to be able to independently create their own robots . The session leader was very informative and he ran the sessions with clear instructions that meant the children could easily understand the task. He was helpful with all children and offered guidance when they were building their robots. He was also fantastic and patient answering the many questions that 7 and 8 year olds have! The children learnt a lot from the session and were able to use this for a written piece of work about ‘caring for a robot.'”
~ Tracy, Teacher, Northamptonshire, September 2018

“This was a very enjoyable workshop which Fine class enjoyed immensely. It was interesting and the children enjoyed building the robots and then making them move using coding. All relevant and well delivered. A very good workshop all round.”
~ Dickon, Teacher, Kent, October 2018

“Excellent work shop which the children throroughly enjoyed!”
~Olivia, Teacher, Buckinghamshire, September 2018

“Thank you very much for the workshops day. The children absolutely loved it and it was perfect for enthusing the children within our school about our current school topic about computers and robotics. The children are still talking about the event a week later and the older children have used the knowledge learnt in the workshops to go on and build their own battle bots with the school’s computing resources. The team were fantastic with the children and were great at differentiating the activities for all year groups within our school. Many thanks again.”
~ Paul, Computing Subject Leader/Year 4, Exmouth, January 2018.

“Excellent day which was enjoyed by all pupils!”
~ Edward, Teacher, Berkshire, April 2018

“My son had a fantastic 11th birthday with his friends! 10 boys, head down, fully focused and having fun – what more could you want!”
~ Allison, Mum, April 2018

“All the children at my son’s 9th birthday party had a great time. All of them were totally engaged and focused for the whole time. They were all proud of the robots they had built and highly competitive in the ‘battles’. A great party, thank.you.”
~ Sally, Mum, May 2018

“Thank you for a great day of fun! The children thought it was the ‘best lesson ever’. They thoroughly enjoyed working in their teams and using their imagination to build their robot.”
~ Nadine,  Teacher, Derbyshire, May 2018

“I have never seen the students so excited and engaged in any school I have observed in the last six months. That’s got to be a good point. If their minds are on and focused they must be learning. The building of the robot did involve a lot of physics without them even knowing it. There was a lot of DT thinking as well, with lots of rapid iteration and design improvements.”
~ Mehul, Assistant Headteacher and STEM Lead, Claremont High School Academy, London, November 2015

“PrepareRobo had come recommended to us by word of mouth, and seemed like just the thing for our LEGO® / robots / electronics and engineering obsessed son. I’m so pleased with the way it all turned out! It was a brilliant party, and ran smoothly from start to finish. Karol turned up early in order to be completely set up before the guests arrived, and then spent the extra time talking to our 3 children and showing them how all the robots work. We had eight lively 7 year old boys (plus the birthday boy’s older and younger sibling) so ten children in all. We were so impressed by the way that Karol moved around the group, keeping all children on task, helping and supporting them, never getting flustered. The boys were clearly captivated; their focus was remarkable because they were so engaged with the challenge. Once they had finished building their robots, we moved through to the track in order to race them. It was such brilliant fun, with the boys cheering on their own creations and genuinely so excited by it all! Again, Karol handled it all very smoothly – he was calm yet clearly enjoying himself too – it’s lovely to meet a genuine enthusiast! When I asked our son what he would give his LEGO® robot party out of 10, he shouted “TEN!”. We would definitely recommend PrepareRobo and will be back for more.”
~ Hannah, mum, May 2017

“We wanted to thank you both for today’s birthday party. We thought you did an amazing job and I was extremely pleased to see the children so engaged for 2 hours. We had a lot of good feedback and everyone was still talking about their robots during cake time.
Lots of sparkling eyes!!”
~  Caroline, mum, January 2017
