Photon Robot

Dedicated for Home users

The Photon robot app provides children with many weeks of great fun. In each chapter, children will take part in Photon’s adventures, face challenges, discover the capabilities of Photon, all the while learning the basics of programming and refining their computational thinking skills.

The robot develops with the child

Photon gains skills that are closely related to what the child has learned and progressed successfully. Straight from the box, Photon is unable to do anything. Children help it learn everything from – directions, colours, and interactions with the environment.

At the same time, children learn how technologies work as they make their first steps in the coding world.

Photon teaches programming step by step

24 months of research and testing with a group of over 3,000 children, led to an intuitive application being developed along with 4 innovative robot programming interfaces. Each interface is ideally suited to the cognitive development of the children, ranging from ages 5 – 12.
