The company was founded by Simon Robinson in 2018 and is focused on developing core 21st Century skills and career opportunities through blended educational and technological programmes for students and educators.
Having spent several years in the commercial drone industry, Simon identified the need to address the failings of the South African school system’s lack of exposing teachers and students to the relevant 21st-century skills and technologies vital for preparing them for future career opportunities.
We believe that these new and innovative technologies should be available to everyone. Hence our mission is to deliver affordable and accessible 4th Industrial Revolution (4iR) technology hardware and curricula to the education industry in Africa.
Delivering 4iR technology programmes and curricula to educators and students through our Inspire STEAM digital learning programmes – which include Drones & Coding, 3D Printing, Robotics & IOT – to develop valuable core education skills and career opportunities created by teachers for teachers.
Having introduced our Inspire STEAM Education programmes to over 130 schools across southern Africa. We are also developing curricula and courses for tertiary education institutions, which include skills development programmes in 4iR technologies, where we offer training and internships and assist in placing successful candidates into full-time job opportunities.
In addition to our Inspire STEAM Education programmes, we have opened our learning channels to offer home-based virtual online classes, some are self-teaching, and others provide real-time virtual instructor-led classes.
We aim to develop STEAM education by delivering content via channels that can be accessed by any parent, child, or teacher – online and offline, in a classroom, at home schools, or simply as an extracurricular activity that a learner does not want to miss out on.
Another focus area is our education and corporate activations, events and team-building products aimed at reaching a wider audience of learners, students, educators and the corporate market.
