Mimetics was created from volunteer work the founders did at the Ontario Science Centre running robot workshops for children in the Flemington Park/Thornecliffe neighbourhoods. In 13 years, we have worked with over 15,000 children and their families. We found that it was difficult to get a stable supply of the right robot to work with so in 2010 we started designing our own. The "Jade Robot" has been available since the Sprint of 2014 and in that time, we have been to many different Toronto and Ottawa area classrooms and brought our workshops to over 1,000 children. We want to expand our programs throughout the GTA and include Trillium funded organizations, that we've worked with before that include Big Brothers/Big Sisters and TPA Cops and Kids programs.
