Based out of the UK, MakerClub wants to introduce 3D printed robotics to schools. The startup makes kits that are classroom-friendly and are designed to teach young people about 3D printing.

MakerClub sells student kits intended to introduce high-tech inventing to the curriculum. These kits contain components such as servo motors, wirings and Arduino chipsets. The 3D printing parts and files can be downloaded from the MakerClub online community. If you don't have access to a printer, crowdsourcing options through the company means you can have parts printed for you for a fee.

In addition to 3D printed robotics, the new venture is developing MakerConnect: a smartphone app-connected Bluetooth chip that enables universal gadget control. The app will also have robot controls that are easy to use and will function for all MakerClub projects.
