Education Ambassador Programs

Better together, for the future of education.

Teachers Dedicated to Making a Difference

While developing learning resources, iRobot Education looks to educators for invaluable guidance and feedback; in particular, those involved in our ambassador program. These educators are experts in creating, curating and delivering impactful learning experiences, scaffolded to meet the needs of each and every student.

Join the Next Generation of Education Innovators

As proud pioneers of teaching and learning with robots, our ambassadors push the boundaries of using robots in the classroom. Our goal is to provide opportunities for our ambassadors to challenge themselves, grow in their creativity, and share their work on a global platform. iRobot Education insiders are beta testers. They are the first to experience new offerings, contribute feedback, receive discounts and shape our educational products.

The Insider Team

Ideal candidates for the Education Insider program are highly motivated, lifelong learners passionate about fostering creativity and collaboration among students. Candidates should feel comfortable being early adopters of new technology and exhibit enthusiasm toward content creation. Insiders have the opportunity to communicate directly with our team, pilot new curriculum and assist with product development.

Applications will reopen in summer 2023
