|STEM Center Robotics Learning Center appearing on|
Shark Tank Episode 704 this Friday night 10/30/2015
The Entrepreneurs who started the STEM Center is sisters Lavanya and Melissa Jawaharlal, who'll both be appearing on the next Shark Tank Season 7, Episode 704 this Friday night. The Stem Center offers a broad range of programs and courses both at the center or hired by local Schools. The Jawaharlal's Mission Statement below is for the robotics learning center helping define why students keep coming back year after year, and why learning about robotics is so much fun.
"STEM Center USA inspires the next generation of STEM leaders by developing a passion for STEM careers at a young age and maintaining interest throughout middle and high school. We provide students with an experiential education that excites, engages, and enriches through a unique, learn-by-doing curriculum."
----------------Currently, there's only one STEM Center located in Claremont, California, with plans to expand in others areas soon. If you're not in Southern California but still interested in building robots, the STEM Center also sells robot kits for students as well as professional engineers. The Pi-Bot, for instance, is a complete robotics kit that can be purchased individually for only $99.00, or sold in quantity depending on how many students will be taking the course.
Some of you may remember the Pi-Bot from it's successful Kickstarter campaign raising over $113,000.00 in April 2014. The reviews from the backers receiving the first Pi-Bot Robotic Kits are overwhelmingly positive even on the first production run. Lavanya and Melissa also ran another successful Kickstarter campaign soon after for another product called "The Technical Alphabet" and successfully raised another $9800.00 from 177 satisfied customers.
STEM Center Reviews before the Shark Tank Episode 704If you're a Shark Tank Fan, then you already know Lori Greiner, and Guest Shark Tank Investor Chris Sacca gets in a bidding war for the Stem Center according to Episode 704 previews. While Lori has a reputation investing in home related products mostly for her QVC Show, Sacca became a billionaire working with and investing in technology related businesses. I'm not sure why Greiner would get into a bidding war with Sacca considering the STEM Center is 100% technology related, but no doubt this will add a little drama during Episode 704. Will the two Sharks work together to close this deal? Or will Chris Sacca make a deal with Stem Center including another Shark on the panel?
