Ozobot launched in fall 2014 with the vision to create an innovative way to play, learn and socially interact in an ever-expanding digital world. Through game applications and creative curriculums, Ozobot introduces interactive robots by blending entertainment and education in the family room as well as the classroom. Their mission is to provide learners as well as gamers of all ages a new option to play, learn and interact as well as inspire them to make the jump from using technology to actively shaping and creating it.
“As we have a K-12 computer science pathway we were looking for CS toys to use at our younger grade levels, and of course students love robots! Ozobot is a fantastic tool for teaching coding as the robot and programs are scaffolded allowing us to use Ozobots at numerous grade and skill levels.” – Brian Seymour
