    Someone from Saudi Arabia I have studied a lot of books on robotics and its a topic that inspires me and it should be on socratic because it is the major topic of future and its something interesting to learn about

    @phillip-e Phillip E. Hi I am Dr Phill Edwards. I have a PhD in robotics. Robots have a bad reputation due to bad Science Fiction writers. They are in fact very useful tools which have revolutionised manufacturing. Robotics is a wide ranging subject which definitely deserves to be on Socratic.

How are new subjects launched?

By the community! (With support from the Socratic team.) To launch a subject on Socratic, you need a founding team of eight people who are committed to building and supporting the subject through its critical early days.

Once eight founders have signed up, you will form a team that collaborates to grow and nurture the subject using a live version of the site. You will write the subject's first featured answers and recruit other contributors. Most important, you will lead by example by participating often and encouraging others to do the same.

Once the founding team has built a foundation of helpful answers and a healthy community of supporters, the subject will graduate, meaning it will join the ranks as a designated Socratic learning resource. We'll also design a beautiful subject badge to make it official!

Who can be a subject founder?

Anyone who knows a lot about Robotics can become a founder. Why? The Socratic community values passion, diversity of opinions, and commitment over credentials.

Alongside your knowledge, your passion to share and spread Robotics with students everywhere should be your driving force. This is what will help your subject succeed!

Why should I become a founder?
  • Be one of eight people building a shared resource that will reach more than a million students every month. Now that's legacy.
  • Connect and collaborate with brilliant people around the world who share your passion. Find your tribe.
  • Earn credibility and status, online and off. Add it to your resume! Founding a subject will keep you sharp, and can even help in your professional life.
  • Have fun. Building something you're proud of feels pretty darn good.
When I sign up to be a founder, what am I committing to? I'm not sure I have time.

New subjects need a foundation of helpful answers and, most important, continuous participation from passionate folks. As a founder, you will:

  • Ensure that your founding team creates at least 20 featured answers that represent that very best in your subject
  • Participate often and encourage other team members, so that you meet your shared goal of high activity days (days on which 8 or more people contribute)

No matter who you are, life is busy and unpredictable. That's why there are no individual or time-based requirements for subject founders. You can contribute to your shared goals anytime, from anywhere - so long as you make an active effort to support the team and push the subject forward.

Can I invite friends to be founders?

If you know someone who would be a great founder for a new subject on Socratic, you can — and should! — invite that person by sharing the link to this page with them, and encouraging them to sign up.

Inviting a friend to join you on the founding team likely means working with someone you already respect, which'll help establish trust amongst the team early on. Trust = better outcomes and more fun.

I would love to see Robotics on Socratic! Can I get involved without becoming a founder?

Yes! To help get Robotics launched on Socratic, you can:

  • Recruit others (know a potential founder?) and spread the word (share links with interested friends or online groups you're part of)
  • Contribute early answers — anyone can write answers, even if you're not a founder
  • Ask some of the first questions (if you're studying this subject or want to learn about it)
  • Get to know the founders and chime in with support and encouragement
