Alex Hodara said he was amazed with the technology that students were creating after he was asked to sponsor a technology-based “hack-a-thon” at his alma mater, Westfield High School, one year ago.

“More than 50 kids showed up to create robotics and mobile applications, including artificial intelligence,” Hodara said.

A cornerstone of Rocket Club is to provide a network for their members that rivals any successful working professional. The club’s advisors and mentors, who also consulted on the club’s curriculum, are comprised of; thirteen company founders, nine Forbes 30 Under 30 recipients, four FIRST & VEX Robotics Alumni, a NASA engineer, and three VR/AR Unity experts.

Young Hoboken Inventors Create 'World's 1st Robot Lemonade Stand'

The "world's first robotic lemonade stand" is no kid's game. It's already earned a thumbs-up from several "Shark Tank" gurus.


LH Spotlight: Rocket Club

There is a new club coming to town, and this is your fair warning to RUN and claim your spot!

We were given advanced access to ROCKET CLUB, the new STEM-focused program for kids (ages 9-14) that focuses on coding, robot building and programming, and entrepreneurial skills. Yup, you read that correctly, entrepreneurial teachings is part of a program for kids starting at age 9. Intrigued? 

So were we.

We love learning about new programs in town, but its rare that we walk into a space and don't want to leave. This place is cool. Like, really, REALLY cool. The Rocket Club is set up like a NASA-style garage, with high-tech work stations, 3D printers, robots, and so many gadgets that we had never seen before. What's even more impressive is the amount of thought, intense research, and attention to detail that was put into developing the program and designing the space.

New club teaches NJ kids about coding, engineering and robotics

Feb 15, 2019 6:06 PM MST

HOBOKEN - A new club that recently opened in Hudson County will teach young children about computer coding, engineering and robotics.

The Rocket Club at the Monroe School in Hoboken immerses kids ages 9 through 14 in robotics entrepreneurship and coding.

“They’re going to be learning business concepts, robotics coding,” says Yoohan Ko, who heads the club. “They’re going to be learning about robotic claws and a Mars rover…so they see that ‘Oh I’m building a robotic claw,’ but this is actually what’s being used by SpaceX, by Tesla in their factories.”
