Robotna

Founded in 2013 by Jaser, Robotna is a youth-led initiative geared towards spreading knowledge of robotics and the relevant technology to underprivileged schoolchildren and refugees across the Kingdom. With the help of 20 experienced volunteers, Robotna has been able to provide over 100 children, both public school students and refugees, in the Aqaba and Tafila Governorates, with the methods for building and programming robots. Through its sessions, workshops, and competitions, Robotna encourages learning through interactive techniques, in addition to targeting social issues through role-play. Robotna’s future goals entail providing paid courses to private schools, the proceeds of which will go to fund the program for the underprivileged, all the while promoting the wonders of robotics to all children.
