Marty has been a head turner with students! He works really well across all of the age groups at GoCode. The younger kids love his human features and are able to use Scratch to get up and running with Marty quickly. For the older kids they're able to explore coding in more detail by moving onto Python and see the physical connection between hardware and software. Rushil Shah

Having something physical to move, away from a computer screen, helps kids better understand what happens when they input certain commands. It moves the lessons from theoretical to practical and lets you 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. Jonathan Baxter

Playing and learning with Marty has been great fun, and it definitely has taught me a lot about engineering and computer programming which will help me in my future career. I definitely want to do engineering at university, and Marty has just made me more determined to make this happen. I have even taught Marty to feed my dog, so I'm wondering what other household chores he could help me with, maybe he could tidy my room or wash the dishes?! Iona
