BirdBrain Technologies' Finch Robot loan program loans our original Finch Robots to districts, schools, libraries, and other organizations across the United States. This free program is our effort to reach students who may not otherwise get the chance to program a robot during their normal school day. In the last 8 years we have reached over 205,000 students with our free robot loans!
We generally loan Finch Robots to an organization for 2 months. We expect the students to work using pair programming, so 2 students work together with each Finch Robot.
The application for the 2020-2021 school year is now open. We will be offering loans on a rolling basis this year. Since school schedules are up in the air, we want to retain flexibility to adapt to teachers' changing needs.
We will be starting a loan program with the new Finch Robot 2.0 in 2021.
