A real programmable robot to help engage across the whole curriculum
Many schools around the country are struggling with the learning loss caused by Covid. There are many tools to address student remediation and Covid recovery in core subjects, but few are effective cross-curricular tools that’ll guarantee an increase in engagement.
Marty the Robot is the walking, dancing, eyebrow-wiggling coding robot that helps accelerate math learning by making abstract concepts come alive.
Hear from other teachers who have put Marty to the test with their students.
Marty links to mathematics learning by creating practical opportunities for learners. From estimating distance and angles, walking the perimeter of shapes, responding to different conditional statements, based on a range of numerical values – the possibilities are endless.
Marty comes with an extensive library of educational resources: from curriculum-linked lesson plans to classroom-ready presentations, you’ll find it all in our Learning Portal.

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 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.
Coding helps learners build on many different skills such as problem solving, pattern recognition, problem decomposition and abstraction just to name a few.
