On-site, customized industrial robotics education for job-ready students

Quite simply, ROOTS is on a mission to educate and prepare students with a job-ready advantage. Our unique robotics education — from elementary grades through vocational college — is developed to go beyond the one-dimensional approach of programming and excel student learning by implementing a three-dimensional method that also includes configuring and installing.

Our Vision

Robotics education
with a human touch

Through innovative and accessible practices, we’ll shape the future workforce with a community focus, cutting-edge techniques, high-tech equipment, and a passion for supporting business and individual economic opportunities. Modular, independent units integrated together give students a deep dive into mechatronics while instructors challenge them with Capstone projects varying from apprentice to master level. The result? Students are job-ready when they graduate.


Programs built to meet market and educational demand

ROOTS is addressing, like no one else, what the industry is asking for by offering best-in-class cobots, products, and services with unique approach at an exceptional value. Our concept: IMAGINE, EDUCATE, INTEGRATE, allows educators to start with a blank slate and have various components at students’ fingertips so they may be heavily involved in the assembly, calibration, programming, and maintenance of a robotic work cell.

Project-Based 5E Learning

Duplicating manufacturing processes and problem solving – each level will educate students and instructors about science, technology, and engineering within the world of robotics to better understand real-life industry needs.

Open Interfaces

Open interfaces which conform to industrial standards – The Robotically Operated Open Training System is an engineered, customized approach that freely allows build and teardown, imagination, and integration.

Plug & Produce Methods

Flexible cobot cells to industry standards – Steps include mount, wire, program, fabricate, calibrate, teach, plan, develop, plug, and produce — all while competing and having fun making a real manufacturing cell.

On-Site Training

Significant on-site train-the-trainer and student coaching – We will continuously evolve and be flexible while pushing the boundaries to connect training and local workforce needs closing the skills gap.


Hear what our educators and students have to say

“The ROOTS educational package provides a plethora of sensors and other packages that allow a customizable training experience that can be unique to each team of students.”

Robert MacMillan

Valencia College

“The flexibility of the ROOTS robotics table has given my students the chance to work with many different systems that they will see in the manufacturing industry.”

Jacob Lasorso

Suncoast Technical College

“ROOTS collaborative robotics makes learning easy, fun, cost-effective, highly efficient, and gives our young minds a gateway into the future of high-tech learners.”

Gil Burlew

Manatee Technical College

“By being able to engage with ROOTS’s hands-on systems, it gave me a wider understanding of how various domains integrate into a single production line in an easy and safe environment. This gave me the opportunity to work on design problems from different perspectives in a way I could not have imagined beforehand. Thank you ROOTS!”

Designed to make learning industrial robotics easy and accessible

ROOTS offers a customized learning management system (LMS) where educators and students can take advantage of online lessons and assessments that are tailored to specific classroom needs. The real-life classroom training experiences will directly tie in with the lesson plans offered through our LMS. Educators can administer lessons and track student progress.
