Tom Lauwers is on a mission to get robots into classrooms. As the founder and chief roboticist at BirdBrain Technologies, he designs educational tools that show students the basics of coding, engineering, and collaboration.

 

Tom received a Ph.D in robotics in 2010 from Carnegie Mellon, where he initially designed the Finch robot and Hummingbird robotics kit. 

 

The Finch is a small robot designed to inspire students learning computer science by providing a tangible representation of their code. 

 

The Hummingbird is a kit that allows students to create and program robots built from electronic components and craft materials.   

 

In this conversation, Tom and Aaron discuss the design of the learning robot, how to make technology more accessible, and why Tom chose to bootstrap the business.



Pittsburgh’s best conference to Expand your Mind & Fill your Heart happens once a year.
