Root® Technology Pack (12) PLUS Custom Training for Twenty (20)

$2,199

Limited Time Offer! Before you know it, school will be back in session! To help you prepare, iRobot™ Education is bundling our Root® Technology pack with a tailored team training session for up to 20 educators.


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 mix coding and robotics into your curriculum.


Ideal for educators sharing technology across classrooms, libraries, makerspaces or clubs, the Root® Technology pack includes 12 Root® rt1 Robots, standard accessories, a printable Learning Level 1 activity pack and a 1-year subscription to premium content for up to 100 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® Technology pack now includes a free tailored team training session for you and your colleagues. Following a participant-focused teaching style, our team reaches out to you to identify your key questions or concerns surrounding the integration of iRobot™ Education’s learning tools and tailors the webinar to your needs.
