Ashton Cofer – Summer Robotics Instructor – Featured on TED!
Ashton Cofer graduated from Robot Academy eight years ago, and now he is instructing at our summer camps in Columbus, OH.
After learning Lego robotics at Robot Academy summer camp, Ashton began competing in the FIRST Lego League (FLL) with his team the Incredibots. The team won 2nd Place at the 2014 Open European Championship and 1st Place at the 2016 World Championship. Ashton has since won numerous national and international awards and was even invited to the White House Science Fair. It's hard to keep track of his accomplishments, so we'll leave it at that for now.
Recently, Ashton gave a TED-Ed talk that was officially featured on TED.com! Within a week of having been posted on TED, the video had over 300,000 views! Click here to check out Ashton Cofer's TED Talk.
