Reybotics is the premiere robotics manufacturing center of South Texas and a leader in curriculum delivery through technology. Founded by former NASA Engineer and Brownsville native Heriberto Reynoso, Reybotics strives to motivate youth to pursue STEM career paths by educating and providing opportunities to high school and college students with a passion for engineering.
Heriberto Reynoso, began building robots at a young age at home. Reynoso turned his passion into a full-time job offering lessons in robotics to areas school districts and developing Reybotics, where he designs robot kits for educational training and wholesale.
Reynoso is determined to impact K-12 education by incorporating robotics into every day curriculum. He believes that if implemented effectively, robotics can transform education. Not only will it motivate and excite students through hands-on activities such as building and programming robots, but it will also aid in understanding and retention. One example is in math curriculum, “As a result [of robotics] students can visually see math concepts come to life. Most students know the concepts, but have absolutely no clue how to apply them to the real world,” Reynoso said, “Robotics can streamline the process.”
Learn. Design. Build.
He has had offers from Google and other robotic and computer science firms from across the country but he has made the decision to stay in the Rio Grande Valley and train young students about robotics to spark their interest in career in science and technology – turning the Mid-Valley into a hub for robotics engineering.
