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.

Hoboken Rocket Club

Fueling the dreams of the next generation

June 21, 2019

By Diana Schwaeble

One thing is certain at Hoboken’s Rocket Club: Every child who participates will gain valuable skills for any STEM related job, says Director Paulo Nunes. He has big hopes and even bigger ambitions for the next generation. It’s all about making a better world, he says.

The club, which opened in February at the Monroe Center, teaches real-world skills to kids ages 9-14. Each student will learn about robotics, coding, and entrepreneurship, all necessary to be successful in the tech market. Nunez believes that the changes in robotics and coding can be compared to the changes when we went from stone tools to steel tools. “It’s not going to change some things,” he says. “It probably is going to change everything. So we want to get ahead of that. We want to equip the next generation with the knowhow, the business skills, and the people skills.”

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.

“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.”
