Artie 3000: a winning code teaching robot

Techstination feature for Friday, April 26, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       Kids love to draw…and they often love little robots.    So a company called Educational Insights has created a winning educational toy called the Artie 3000…The Coding Robot.   It’s designed for seven to twelve year olds…but that range is flexible…creates a WiFi network of its own to connect to computers or mobile devices…and holds a marker pen that allows it to draw.   Product Manager Kelly Recinos…

“So he’s got drag and drop on board, he also has a remote control function, there is Python and Java script onboard as well as Blockly and Snap which are used in a lot of libraries and classrooms.”

So Artie can work with other coding apps …growing with kids as they learn.   The price is friendly too…under seventy dollars.  Find more at CodeWithArtie.com.
