CORI Story

CORI bot photo

Unleashing creativity is the driving force behind the team at CORI.

As engineers and educators by trade, our company’s evolution has been a collaborative journey conceived along-side innovative students, passionate teachers, and inventive makers who are actively reimagining the learning and creating experience. Those conversations, in concert with the design thinking process, is how CORI was born.

Our design thinking process began with one central question -- how do we remove the barriers to creating?

As we unpacked the challenges in classrooms, makerspaces, and our everyday garages, some patterns emerged that started our ideation. The CORI team focused on designing our products with these key elements in mind:

- Time-Efficiency 
- Storage, Safety, and Space
- Aesthetic Value
- Open Source Topology
- Community Connection
- Budget-Friendly

Like any effective design process, we continued to listen, ask questions, research, test, and improve our designs which helped us prepare us for the next phase.

In January 2020, we officially launched CORI. We remain committed to reflecting upon our experiences in the field because customer relationships and feedback are the backbone to our mission. We look forward to innovating solutions that spark creativity and inspire the next generation of engineers, makers, scientists, and artists. We invite you to connect with us at our community hashtag --  #CoriCreate. We love seeing your creative versions of our designer templates, but we especially get inspired with freestyle building that uses CORI in ways we never thought possible. 

Measure Twice, Cut Once

Our products are not your typical kits with pieces that fall perfectly into place. It requires planning, constructing, testing and rebuilding. Things will fail, break and not align. That is the learning we thrive on and find so valuable. Enjoy the journey as much as the product you create. Just remember, every cut matters with CORI!
