Ozobot is unique in its ability to get STEAM into any classroom. We train educators in our 2 Ways to Code so it can easily be incorporated into any subject (just take a look at our lesson library!) Educators find our screen-free Color Codes invaluable for learning coding concepts without ever turning on a device.

 

Here’s what teachers are saying:

“Ozobot offers us the ability to get coding into every classroom, regardless of the content area, and regardless of the grade level.”

--Amanda Taylor, K-12 Educational Technology Coach, Saddleback Valley Unified School District

 

“When [students] master coding in OzoBlockly, it becomes easier for them to code other robots and programs through block coding.”

--Estela Gonzalez, Computer Lab Tech & Classified School Employee of the Year

 

“We model a lot of tech in the classroom to see what works and what doesn't. I can truly say that Ozobots are the most universally appreciated and utilized tool that we have found for teaching robotics, coding, technical literacy, electronics, and mathematics, across all of the grade levels. It is really kind of amazing just how great of a product you have designed.”

--Rhye McLeod, Director of Technology, Central Creativity
