Robotify Pilot Summer 2019 Applications Now Open.
April 23, 2019
You may have seen last week that we have launched a brand new product - Robotify Edu. Well at the end of that post we spoke about how pilot applications are now open.
After a week of bedding in we decided it would be useful to share some more information about our pilot programme and how it is structured! If you're sold already - apply here now.
See last week's article here.
What is it?
Robotify EDU is a new web app optimised for Google Chrome that teaches students the basics of programming and logic using Google’s Blockly language (similar to Scratch) and a Virtual Robot.
Implementation for Grades 5-8 (Primary School in Ireland) to teach programming fundamentals for beginner students.
Student Usage Minimum
The Robotify Pilot program requires at least 3 hours per week of self-paced usage over a month in order to participate in the free pilot.
Any Laptop device with Google Chrome.
The Proposed Duration of the Robotify Pilot Program is 1 month with continuous weekly usage. Can be completed before 1 month if all 12 hours are fulfilled.
The Robotify Pilot Program is entirely free for it’s duration.
The goal of this pilot is to teach 5th-8th Grade (primary school) students core fundamental programming concepts using Google’s Blockly (similar to Scratch) and Robotify virtual robots.
