Ozobot is a miniature smart robot that can follow drawn lines or roam around freely, detect
colors and can also be programmed and coded. With Ozobot students will have hands-on opportunities to learn about robotics and programming while working on STEM/STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Math) applications. Ozobot can teach students about complex concepts while being engaged and having fun.
With Ozobot, students from kindergarten to grade 12 can begin learning about the realm of robotics. Ozobot allows students to create routes or adventures for their robot with colored markers and codes. In fact, students can begin learning about robotics using the colored markers and then advance into coding as they begin to understand the programming process. Ozobot is thus an excellent tool to use in STEM/STREAM classes to engage and inspire your students!
By using the mat that comes with the Ozobot Evo Education Kit, teachers and students can observe how this smart and social robot reads and interacts with different circumstances. In this case, you can use the Evo app to control and monitor your Ozobot Evo by designing custom blocks and building a sequence of events.
Check out the Teacher’s Guide to explore some ideas on how coding activities can be integrated into the classroom.
It is recommend to have one Ozobot for up to 4 students and 2 additional Ozobots as backups.
