About Mimetics Inc.

Mimetics loves students. They want them to have a bright future. To help get them there, they use robots to engage them in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Their programs and products are fun and educational. Since 2001, they have been used by 20,000 youth in schools, libraries and museums, among other organizations.

Their main feature is the Jade Robot. Designed for learning by Myke Predko, the Jade Robots draws, dances, and more! It is programmable in Scratch and C+ and is durable, creative, and Made-in-Canada.

Mimetics believes that everyone should seek to help (and not harm) everything around them. This includes our family, friends, co-workers and the environment we live in. That's why we employ men and women equally and make our robots domestically.

The Change We Seek®

Mimetics seeks to inspire a new generation of STEM leaders and practitioners. They want youth to know and enjoy the benefits of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, transforming their educational experience and setting them up for a bright future.

Specifically, they want to address the inequality between girls and boys - and latter men and women. Their programs and products increase girls' enrollment in advanced science and math by 10x. And they employ the same number of men as women.

What makes us a better company?
