Sony is offering a pilot program through which educators will be provided, free of cost, multiple KOOV kits for the classroom, 1 hour of training with the KOOV team and 4 weeks to experience KOOV first hand.
KOOV is a robotics and coding educational kit for ages 8 and up, made up of blocks, sensors, motors, actuators, and a companion app. The app teaches core concepts about design, coding and robotics, and features a 50+ hour educational course, guidance on building and coding for pre-designed robots, and a Free Production area to build and code new robots from scratch.
To apply to participate in the pilot program teachers should:
- Create a space available for students to build with KOOV.
- Provide details on use – where, when, how, which grades, etc.
- Observe and record student’s experiences & feedback and other details of usage.
