Creator: Scansorial startup emerging from Harvard University
The minds at Harvard University had a mission to make coding accessible for learners at any age—and thus, Root was born.
Root is a fun, interactive, and easy-to-use robot that teaches coding to people of all ages and backgrounds. It reacts to other object in its environment, and kids can react to Root in different ways. The robot’s interplay is orchestrated through code, so kids can download the Root app onto their tablets and select which actions they want Root to navigate.
Kickstarter donations range from $10 to $1000 and prizes for Root supporters include a Root T- shirt, your name listed on the website as a token of appreciation, and a complete Root robot kit containing a Root robot, charging cable, a whiteboard, and free digital downloadable lessons and activities to navigate the robot, and more.
