Meet Photon, one of the world’s friendliest and smartest coding coach for children. The robot comes equipped with a bunch of sensors, that allow it to see, hear, measure the distance, react to touch, obstacles and more. A paired mobile app plays a huge role in the teaching process. Children get to learn about Photon’s unfortunate trip to Earth which ended in a collision with an asteroid. To help the robot get himself together and repair the broken spaceship, kids are given various coding related quests and tasks. The programming language used was inspired by MIT’s Scratch and adjusted for users who are 6 years old and above. Completing lessons awards the players experience points that allow them to personalize the robot to their own taste – just like the hero of a RPG game.
