Root Robot

Client: Wyss Institute at Harvard University

Created by a research team at the Harvard's Wyss Institute, Root is an educational robot specifically designed to provide an interactive way for children to learn to code. The system is as intuitive and approachable as any tablet app, providing a framework easy for teachers to understand and comfortable for young students to use.

Root operates on whiteboards by driving on the vertical surface magnetically and — using dry-erase markers — draws, erases, and responds to lines drawn on the board. This ability to interact with the robot by drawing opens up potential for a broad range of unique instructional activities and games.
