The team at Project Lab have created a new system to help make learning to code fun and easy, whatever age you may be. Mojobot has been created to make coding and robotics accessible to all and offers a tangible coding robot which is capable of teaching algorithms, math, science. and technology.
Mojobot is a stacked robot equipped with sensors and capable of picking up and carrying around game tokens. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about the robotic learning system which is launched via Kickstarter this week with the aim of raising funds to make the jump into production.
With pledges available from £99 or $130 for the basic set worldwide deliveries expected to take place sometime around July 2019. The team behind Mojobot explain a little more about its inspiration and design. “Tangible coding makes learning about software programming a fun, easy, natural and social process. A group can sit together around the table and figure out solutions as a team. Everyone can easily see the coding tags and add or remove them as they wish.”
“Tangible coding solutions have been shown to be more effective for teaching as children have reported that tangible coding is more attractive and easier to play than alternative screen based coding. Having physical coding pieces that kids can touch and feel helps to improve engagement and memory. Coding and computational thinking is an essential skill for our present time, and will be more important as we progress into the future. “
“Mojobot is a tangible coding platform that allows programming of our action-packed robot by using physical coding tags that kids can pick up and handle easily. Mojobot is equipped with many features such as lights, sounds, sensors, motion and actions. Mojobot can even pick up tokens, carry them around and deliver them to different locations.“
