Adaptable enough to be used from Year 1 up to University level!
Marty the Robot supports the abilities to:
Secondary (Years 8-13)
Marty explores more advanced concepts:
“Having something physical to move, away from a computer screen, helps pupils better understand what happens when they input certain commands. It moves the lessons from theoretical to practical and pupils can see the interaction between software and hardware. Marty is cute and engaging which makes it easy to introduce him in the classroom. But he also demonstrates how coding can be applied in the real world as he can interact with his surroundings.”
“Marty the Robot is highly motivating and accessible to all ability levels. The students are constantly being challenged as they explore the range of movements that are possible. Technical support from Robotical has been first-class and the local distributor, Lioncrest Education, has been extremely helpful and efficient. Marty is a very engaging resource and easy for staff to use. It is a joy to use a high-quality product that can present such a wide range of opportunities.”
