STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) has greatly evolved since its abbreviation was first coined in the mid-’90s. It wasn’t until the early 21st century that its popularity started to rise. It’s now more popular than ever! STEM was once reserved as a curriculum in the classroom, but it is now easier than ever before to teach and reinforce at home.

Introducing the Ozobot

Robotics is one of the best ways to teach STEM yet it is often taught at costly summer camps like Digital Media Academy. All has changed with smart bots like the Ozobot. Ozobot teaches children STEM in fun and engaging ways without a hefty price tag attached. It is charged, ready to play out of the box, and going to undoubtedly be one of the hottest toys during the holiday season.

The Ozobot in Action!

Ozobot is certainly not your ordinary robot and is a prime example how coding can be as just as educational as entertaining! Want it to follow directional commands? Use the mat or draw color codes on paper with the included markers and it will respond by using optical sensors. It also races, makes audible noises such as yawning, laughing, and snoring; and dances. You can even bring it to life with characters like Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, or one of your own.

Take full control of this small, programmable bot by dragging and dropping blocks of code to create OzoBlockly programs. Use the OzoBlockly programs to shape its behavior and personality with lights, speed, and sounds. Ready for advancement? Display the raw JavaScript powering your programs via OzoBlockly. This is just a mere sampling what the Ozobot can do. While there are over 20 activities that are included with the 2.0 Bit starter pack, you can download more via the Ozobot app for even more fun! This is the robot that your child has always dreamed of having, but didn’t think was achievable until now.

Overall, I love the Ozobot Evo! It fosters creativity, boundless imagination, and skills like decision-making, problem-solving, and pattern recognition. These are skills that will be beneficial for your child for years to come.
