The startup that's teaching coding by enabling children to control real life robots remotely...


robotify logoWe all know that robots are going to have a huge impact on industry in the future, therefore it’s more important than ever that our children learn all they can now about robotics. Of course, prohibitive costs and indeed location has meant that this is often beyond the reach of many children or indeed education practitioners - until now that is.
Our latest startup of the week have identified this issue and have created an innovative solution.

Robotify Vivero is a new platform which is on a mission to “teach kids how to code, bot by bot.”

The platform will enable children to learn how to code, by controlling real life robots based at Robotify HQ in Dublin.

Users can currently undertake some online crash courses which will teach them the fundamentals of programming and coding. The 90 minute classes cover:

  • Basic Programming Terminology
  • Electronics
  • Internet of Things
  • Maths
  • Operators
  • Variables
  • If statements
  • Loops
  • Blockly graphical programming

Robotify Vivero is in effect teaching coding whilst providing learners with access to remotely controlled robots - a much more fun way of learning - wouldn’t you agree?

The classes cost just €14.99 - an absolute steal when you consider the costs normally associated with purchasing a robot!

It’s relatively early days for Robotify Vivero but we reckon it is going to go far.
We like what they’re doing.
Lots.
