FarmBot in Education

See how students, teachers, professors, and educational institutions around the world are using FarmBot as a STEM-based learning and research tool

Virginia Tech University

Uses FarmBot in a multi-generational, research-based fashion that engages undergraduate students, doc students, and faculty at the university and K-12 level.

“We have traditionally set education up as a drudgery. But when you set it up to where it’s a challenge, and you set no parameters – you let them go their own direction – this is how learning really takes place as opposed to the contrived school setting.”

“Not only did we enjoy a great day connecting with students, parents and the community in general, there is great satisfaction knowing that the FarmBot and garden will be teaching the next generation Solana Ranch Elementary School STREAM students to be sustainability leaders.”

Saw multiple student teams submit FarmBot themed projects to the 2017 World Championship held in Louisville, Kentucky.

“The neatest thing happened when we were leaving the STEM room: we ran into the Discobots, another team whose project was on the FarmBot! The girls were in awe and this was the best part of their day. We took pics with the Discobots and their version of the FarmBot.

“Partnering with Cal Poly has been a win-win-win. The students have the opportunity to work on a meaningful, real-world project; the university is better preparing students to enter the workforce; and FarmBot is able to bring inspired creative thinkers into our R&D process.
