A real programmable robot with character!
Marty the Robot is the best value-for-money humanoid robot on the market. In our experience, humanoid robots are the most exciting tool for making STEM learning engaging for all students. Marty is designed for educators and learners, is simple to use, incredibly robust and absolutely state of the art. And Marty can walk, dance and eyebrow-wiggle like no rolling robot can! Marty is equipped with a unique walking mechanism, with each individual limb controlled by a separate motor. This means Marty can turn, kick a ball and so much more, while also being more stable than other walking robots.
Marty comes with extensive technical support from our dedicated team, and an ever-growing set of curriculum-linked lessons and activities suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced coders.
Marty supports progression from screen-free programming and block-based coding, to text-based programming language Python and more.
Program Marty from PC, or any Android and iOS devices, using our app. Connect using Bluetooth, WiFi, USB or I2C for custom add-ons.
There’s been a lot of research conducted that suggests humanoid robots (the ones that look and act like people) are great at engaging students of all ages and stages. Humanoid robots have been shown to help develop computational thinking and foster greater engagement from learners across a wide array of subjects in the curriculum. Having a human form has been proven to invoke a stronger connection and sense of ownership.
We’ve compiled a research paper that showcases the benefits of humanoid robots in education.
We know that many department budgets are tight right now – even more so during a pandemic. However, educational grants are still available at federal, regional and local levels, many from private organisations and charities. Applying for grants can be daunting and scary, so we put together a 10-step guide to help you focus, hone your grant-writing skills and get noticed by those awarding the funds.
