There are many robot type toys on the market today, however, nothing like the one I am going to show and explain to you. Ozobot is a robot that follows a path by reading different colors on a piece of paper or colored coded lines on pre-printed sheets that you fill in. This creative robot not only teaches STEM and programmable coding, but it empowers children’s minds to discover and explore complex coding concepts.
Ozobot takes learning to a whole new level. If you do not have a tablet, you can still have fun with markers, paper and game boards. You can control Ozobot’s behavior through a block based editor Blockly. Through the many applications such as hopscotch, scratch, inventor, tynker and others, Ozobot encourages creative thinking and empowers your mind to think logically while providing hours of fun.
