The Robot Dojo

Website for a small company teaching unique robotics courses to children. Unlike other institutions, this one balances science with the artistic and creative side of technology. The design had to be bright, colorful and break with the straight lines and form-like appearance associated with science, while still feeling solid and efficient. There's a bit of jquery magic in the sliding panels, but not too much animation.


For 15 years, Conrad lived in Mexico, where he worked as a freelance radio and print journalist. His work took him into a minefield, a gunfight, a dugout canoe and the homes of many fascinating, brave and generous people. He is also an avid teacher and has led classes in radio, robotics, soccer, physics and anthropology in a diversity of places, including office towers, lecture halls, fields and palm thatched huts.
