Professional learning

for Photon

Photon develops with your students.

Photon is designed for learning at school, where students develop their robots by solving tasks and experiments. All tasks and experiments are based on a story in which users help Photon to explore our world.

 

Photon’s skills are closely related to the students’ progress. When we pull the robot out of the box… it cannot do anything at all. Students must help him learn everything from scratch – how he moves, what colors he has and how he interacts with the environment using various sensors.

Why Photon?
