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 Magic Bridge is an application that allows to operate with up to eight Photons from each computer in the classroom and integrate with an interactive whiteboard.
Photon can be programmed using several coding apps.
When creating a great product for students, every detail matters.
In this hands-on course, you will learn how easy coding with Photon is for young children and students who are pre-readers. You will learn to program Photon. You’ll explore the sensors and functions that control Photon. At the conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to operate Photon and seamlessly integrate Photon into your lesson plans.
In this hands-on course, you will learn how to code your Photon with Scratch, a free online coding platform. You will learn how to use Scratch’s block based software to control your Photon. By the completion of this course, you will be able to integrate Scratch coding into your lesson plans.
In this hands-on course, you will examine sample lessons for using Photon in the the content-specific classroom*. You will collaborate with peers to discover how you can integrate Photon into your own classroom. At the completion of this workshop, you will be able to create and test your own lesson with Photon.
*Available for Science, Math, Language Arts, Social Studies and/or Foreign Language.
In this hands-on course, you will get started with block coding of Photon and be able to take your programming to the next level. You will learn how to program Photon and integrate coding into your classroom. By the completion of this course, you will be able to write a block program and be able to share the purpose of the program with your peers.
In this course, you will gain hands-on experience with 3D printing for Photon. You will go through the engineering design process to design a 3D object with Tinkercad, use a 3D printer to create a small item, and print a product for Photon. At the completion of this course, you will be able to employ the engineering design process to solve small problems with your students.
In this hands-on course, you will learn how to use 8 Photons at a time for team coding and cooperative coding. At the conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to design specific activities for Photon.
In this hands-on course, you will learn to code your Photon using the Python language. You will discover how easy Python is to learn text based coding, because it is a text based coding language with easy to use syntax. At the completion of this course, you will be able to integrate Photon into content lessons using Python coding.
In this course, you will gain hands on experience employing the engineering design process to solve a problem. At the completion of this course, you will be able to use the engineering design to design a problem for your students to solve.
Text based coding can be intimidating. In this course, you will learn a simple way to use text based coding to code Photon. You will be able to introduce your students to text based coding while still using a block structure. In this course, you will become familiar with the text that you will need to transition to text based coding languages. By the completion of this course, you will be able to integrate text based coding with Photon into your lessons.
We used to think that we needed a different robotics coding solution for every grade level or range. Photon provides the kind of flexibility that allows us to integrate coding and robotics into any grade and any subject. Even teachers who are apprehensive to use technology have found Photon to be just as friendly to use as its looks suggest. Photon has allowed us to be creative in designing assessments that not only meet the standards of the subject but integrate the STEM principles that we sometimes struggle to integrate across the curriculum
After a week of testing Photon, we can say that it is extremely valuable in terms of interest, development and even correction of the overall development of the child. A great idea that in the form of great fun is teaching children so many valuable skills and messages and the preschoolers didn't even notice that they were coding.
Photon is robust because it lets students engage at their own level and in their own way, but also ensuring there are opportunities for problem-solving in every interaction. Whether it’s a preschooler acting out the program as he’s programming or a middle school student wanting to make Photon do a dance complete with color changes and loops in the programming, students jump into thinking with Photon within 30 seconds of being introduced to it, and they can all learn something in a short time by interacting with it.
