RoboBrain - Coding and Robotics Teacher - UK remote

A Bit About RoboBrain -

Coding and programming have been gaining more and more importance in education these days, more so post pandemic. RoboBrain is a computer programming school that educates children from the ages of 6 - 13+. RoboBrain offers almost 500 hours of Computational Thinking and Computing courses content, and students collectively have completed more then 100,000 hours of learning.

The main philosophy behind RoboBrain and the curriculum we have developed is to guide children on how to approach a complex problem, understanding what the problem is and developing possible solutions. Children will then be able to apply this process to their future endeavours.

RoboBrain is looking to grow our team of teachers and educators who share our passion and commitment to empower and engage children. If you have a background in education or in programming (especially Python), we'd love to hear form you!
