About Wonder Workshop:

We are passionate parents, technologists, kids-at-heart, builders, tinkerers, teachers, researchers, and fun-loving people, all inspired by the potential of each and every child.

We believe that every child should be empowered to question, think, and create. We want to encourage them to be curious and to find their own joy in learning. Coding enables creativity and agency in this new world. By learning to code, they are becoming shapers of their own world.

Why work with us?

Job satisfaction does not get better than seeing the product you work on materially impact the lives of young students. We're fortunate to see this all the time.

We’re solving tough technical challenges to create a learning platform. We have electro-mechanical, firmware, and software along with apps and games. Stir all of it together and make the UI so simple a 5 year old can use it.

We’ve got vision - we started with Dash and Dot for grade-school kids, we’ve expanded to offer Cue for older audiences, and we're still growing and exploring.

Open-ended play with robots makes coding tangible and allows us to reach children from a young age, while they are establishing their identity and making sense of the world around them.

Coding is a foundational 21st century skill. We're widely recognized as a leader in that space. Our apps deliver on the promise of teaching kids to code, and we have experienced educators on are team who are  building curriculum for school settings.
