XXI century is the time of information technologies and automation. As the world technologies go forward, the standard forms of education at schools should be also supported by something innovative, complex and technological. So, it is obvious, that it is robotics that meets needs of the current education system and brings good results. Presidential Lyceum of physics and mathematics #239, which is located in St. Petersburg is known to be one of the best secondary school in Russia. Since 2008 there has been functioning Robotics Center for schoolchildren that provides a high quality education for those, who are keen on developing in the fields of technical education. The paper describes the Robotics Center – unique place that has succeed to create from the very beginning a complex education system, that includes robotics courses for schoolchildren (basic robotics, electronics, applied mechanics and programming), competitions and festivals, camps, courses for teachers and other activities that join together children, their parents, teachers and enthusiasts, who are keen on robotics.
