How to Enter

  1. Program a custom expression for your robot and dress it up! Need help getting started? Here is how to create your first expression. Or browse the LEARN section of our site to get some inspiration. Or check out some past characters created by kids from our workshop.

  2. Document your creation! Take a portrait photo or video of your newly customized Cubby. (Hint: videos will give us more information to judge by). Get creative with the scenery! 

  3. Create a user account on, upload your documentation from #2 (photos or videos), give it a title and a short write up. Feel free to share the back story of your creation, add a funny name, or make a note about how you program it in the description. Keep a link to your profile handy for the next steps (copy & paste it somewhere)

  5. REGISTER yourself at our new Teach Portal.

Once you're able to login to our portal, you can add as many pictures/video to the gallery as you want.

  6. Last step, Get some bubbles! Bubbles in Creatubbles are the same as Likes in Facebook - get friends to bubbles your creation! The top 5 highest bubbles will become our finalists. The earlier you submit, the more time you have to get bubbles. We will also tweet each submission periodically to help boost your bubbles.

    Share your robot creation on your social feeds and invite your friends and family to bubble. Don't forget to mention Little Robot Friends @lilrobotfriends (so we can retweet) and use the hashtags #mycubby and #teacherconca on your social posts.

In this hiring cycle, we’re looking for educators who will be able to teach and support classes on a part-time basis, starting from January 2024 with flexible end dates - though a consistent weekly schedule will be expected. Knowledge and comfort with technology is a strong plus, but the most important qualities are compassion and patience. Our primary goal is to build confidence, so being able to empathize with kids at this stage of learning is really important for achieving that.
Depending on the type of class a LRF educator either leads the class through the lessons or supports the class by providing additional help. Knowledge and comfortability with technology is a strong help, but the most important qualities are compassion and patience. As described above our primary goal is to build confidence, so being able to empathize with kids at this stage of learning is really important for achieving that.
