Limited Time Offer! To help you prepare for the upcoming school year, iRobot™ Education is bundling our Root® Classroom pack with two (2) free seats to our introductory training session.
Whether you are dedicating each robot to a small group of students, seeking an entirely online experience, or a healthy mix of both, this educator bundle provides you with everything you need to get started with coding and robotics.
For in-classroom experiences, the Root® Classroom pack includes 6 Root® rt1 Robots, standard accessories, a printable Learning Level 1 activity pack and a 1-year subscription to premium content for up to 6 devices.
Using its companion iRobot® Coding App, you and your students are able to not only control the robots, but also leverage a simulated version of the robot. This approach allows you to flexibly send projects home with students, with the ability to bring them to life with the robot when returning to the classroom.
To top it all off, the Root® Classroom pack now includes two free all-access passes to our introductory "Hit the Code Running" professional development webinar. Here you and one other colleague will get to join other educators in developing the skills and mindset to comfortably integrate coding and robotics into your hybrid classroom, and beyond. Offer ends September 30, 2020.
