True Robotics, co-founded in 2021 by Anthony Galgano and Kwasi Acheampong, began as a research-focused EdTech startup based in Worcester, MA. Our journey commenced with participation in the prestigious WPI/MIT I-Corp program, where we successfully interviewed 47 teachers to test our hypothesis: integrating robotics into classroom settings enhances student engagement. This foundational research underscored our goal to revolutionize STEM education for students in grades K-12.
Our mission is to inspire and make STEM disciplines more accessible through innovative robotics kits, paired with a research-driven, evidence-based curriculum and comprehensive training services. Despite facing challenges in product development and coping with demanding schedules, True Robotics has achieved significant milestones, including the national expansion of our programs.
The inception of True Robotics was significantly influenced by Anthony's engagement with Our Bright Future, a non-profit led by his mentor and high school soccer coach, Kwasi Acheampong. This experience reinforced our commitment to community enrichment and empowering students through STEM education. As we continue to grow, True Robotics remains dedicated to broadening our educational impact, enhancing our product offerings, and fostering a new generation of innovators and critical thinkers, all rooted in our initial research and commitment to using robotics to invigorate classroom learning.
