Dear girls and boys, welcome in Robotvilla! Robotvilla is a blog and also a Kids Tech Studio on wheels located in The Netherlands. In the studio, kids from the age of 5 are welcome to discover the world of tech with me. Robotvilla is also a blog where I write about all the cool techie stuff I find and try out. I hope you get inspired to make some awesome projects yourself. Maybe you can create digital jewelry, a robot or an awesome 3D design, or you can code a little game. Share your creations with me and I will showcase each and every one of your projects to the world. Keep making!

Robo greets, Francesca
