Learn Robotics Your Way
And at your own pace.
The Circuit Launch robotics education program is divided into two pathways: Team CoLab where students work together on a big audacious team project (like Reachy); and the Individualized CoLab, designed for students who want to learn new skills while working on their own project, at their own pace.
It is also built around YOUR specific learning goals.
The Individualized CoLab runs from the start of each month (next intake May 1st 2021), and continues on a monthly basis for as long as you want. Each week there is a Mastermind session with a Technical Mentor. These are small, focused sessions with a small number of students who are also working on their own projects. You get expert mentoring AND peer mentoring PLUS a support framework as well.
You get to build and learn as part of the Circuit Launch community, access to the tools, machines and equipment, as well as the advice and guidance.
It's kind of like Circuit Launch membership, but ON STEROIDS.
The Individualized CoLab is also suitable for students at all levels, from beginners to advanced.
Where do you want to start?
This project tree illustrates examples of micro-projects organized by basic skill area.
Interested in learning how to prototype your own circuit board? Then the green section above charts the key areas you need to cover. This corresponds to our micro-project database where you can select the project matched to the skill you wish to develop.

Already have a project?
Bring your own project and get access to the tools, machines and equipment you need.
Participate in the weekly Mastermind session with the Technical Mentor and fellow CoLab students which target knowledge and skill gaps and provide momentum to overcome obstacles.
Get to know our amazing community of roboticists, entrepreneurs and creatives who make Circuit Launch a really special place to be.
For the Individualized CoLab no experience is necessary.
You just need to source your own parts, kits, consumables and project materials. We can also help you choose projects that are within your budget, or you could apply to use one of the community robots such as Misty II (depending on availability).
Students can participate virtually or in person.
Around half of our students have been participating virtually during the pandemic. We use a range of tools and platforms (Zoom, Discord, Slack, Notion) to enable virtual collaboration so you can learn from home. If you are interested in participating in person, please see the section below regarding COVID compliance.
We recommend 20 hours per week commitment for this program to be effective, however you will get out of it what you put into it. The Mastermind session is the only structured meeting each week (90 mins), but can be attended asynchronously if necessary.
We also schedule regular Study Halls where you can build alongside other CoLab students.
COVID compliance. Very important.
This program is COVID compliant. We require masks while in the space at Circuit Launch. Full social distancing and safety protocols are in place. Plus we have Molekule air filters activated while we're working in the Lab. During the pandemic we have a limit of 10 students in person in the Lab at any time.
