Robotech Labs is an innovative Hub which aims at providing STEM curriculum in the field of Robotics Education in Tanzania. It is also a proud certified PTC STEM Academy as a training institute to help and guide young people in driving their ideas to be applicable and implementable.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing everything in the city – from utilities to cloud to robotics making Tanzania an attractive ground for both IoT and hardware innovation. Start-up and venture community here enjoy an organised ecosystem powered by active investors and prolific accelerators. 

Overall, the goal is to make an impact, create solutions and make a difference in Science and Technology in Tanzania. The hub also came up with a platform that when Engineering and Diploma students choose their preferred project, they get training in the technology involved and technical knowledge for executing the project on their own—at the same time, giving them ongoing support whenever any problem arises.

Robotech Labs partners with TME Education, CoderZ and PTC STEM Academy. It is a proud host of an international event held worldwide to spread awareness in tech using Arduino. The event hosted along with TME Education brings students from various universities to Robotech where they are introduced to Arduino. Training courses in Circuitry and designing of circuits, multiple components, BT and BTMF controlled robots, basic electronics, Microprocessor and Microcontroller, Bluetooth, module datasheet, connections and configurations are offered to make a variety of practical and applicable projects in the real world.
