Manchester Robotics (MCR2) is a spinout company from the University of Manchester, incorporated on 6 July 2020. Our mission is to democratize access to skills in Robotics and Automation that will drive future economic growth.  Primary and secondary sectors of the global economy are rapidly adopting robotics, 50% of manufacturing operators are planning to work with robots by 2030. Education systems need to respond and adapt to the demand for robotics-related STEM skills.

The flagship product is PuzzleBot, a “lab in a robot”, that is a tool for independent learning and vocational training, a versatile, integrated, and dedicated development board for robotics. Prototypes have been deployed and tested over the past 5 years in teaching programs at the University of Manchester and shipped to distance learners across 10 countries during the covid-19 pandemic.
