We make things and teach other folks how to make things!
Our mission is to empower women and girls to explore, discover, and create positive change in their own lives and in their communities. To achieve this goal, we provide open-source project and tool tutorials, in-person workshops, and custom project-based curriculum in Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Mathematics (“STEAM”) fields.
We believe that education is the key to a successful, equitable, and progressive society. The more we know, the more problems we can solve and the better we can solve them! Our goal is to teach our students critical thinking and problem-solving skills alongside practical, career-ready skills in STEAM fields.
We promote and advocate for: equal protection and education for all persons; environmental conservation and protection; and reduction of consumption and waste.
- Project-based learning workshops, one-on-one, and small-group classes in STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Mathematics) subjects;
- Custom professional and curriculum development in STEAM subjects;
- Innovative project and tool tutorials.

About the Founder, Jennifer Fox (aka jenfoxbot)
Jen Fox is an engineer, a maker, and an educator. After dabbling in dark matter (B.S., Physics, Occidental College), Fox settled into engineering (M.S., Mechanical Engineering, UCLA) with a blend of inventing and education, leading her to found FoxBot Industries in mid-2015.
Fox’s research contributions in physics are published in multiple journals, including Astroparticle Physics, the Journal of Instrumentation, and Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research. Fox’s engineering expertise includes renewable energy technology, electronics, and data science. She has taught STEAM subjects to thousands of students in every setting imaginable, from week-long maker camps for kids to university physics courses at UCLA.
Fox’s work through FoxBot Industries has been featured by SparkFun Electronics, Adafruit Industries, Make: Media, Living Computers: Museum + Labs, Instructables, HackaDay, IEEE, and the Pacific Science Center.
