Photon awakens the curiosity of students and motivates them to learn new technologies. Classes with Photon help teachers create educational situations conducive to building interest in programming and exact sciences.
Using Photon during class teaches students how to work in a group, arouses their curiosity and engages emotions. A rich set of scenarios are ready ideas for conducting classes. The robot is adapted to work both in early school education and in grades 4-8.
Photon requires no configuration and can be operated by any teacher without prior preparation. The operation of the robot is intuitive, and the basic functions do not require technical training. Photon’s battery provides up to 8 hours of operation on a single charge. Thanks to this, instead of solving technical problems, you can focus on conducting classes.
This interface is for students who can already read. At this stage, they create complex operations and configure sequences using colored instruction blocks. Students develop analytical skills and learn to design complex program sequences using sensors. They will develop the skill of early error detection and optimization of written programs.
This is an introduction to real programming. The interface resembles classic console code. Students arrange blocks of text to create programs. As a result, they develop analytical skills and understanding of code structure and syntax in “real” programming.
Photon is integrated with the most popular tool for learning programming in schools – Scratch. In addition to the standard possibilities offered by Scratch, the tool has been expanded to include blocks for issuing commands to Photon and readings from its sensors. It enables programming of up to 8 robots simultaneously.
The little inventor set and educational robot is a combination that will teach creative thinking. It can be used not only in technology, but also in physics when discussing current conduction issues.
This application is dedicated to beginner (in programming) teachers. The application is combined with a ready-made base of scenarios adapted to specific age groups. Entering the code from the selected scenario gives access only to those functions that are needed for the given class. Photon EDU lets you create your own scripts.
This application is designed for teachers who already have programming experience. All functions are available without restrictions, so teachers can create their own scripts and lesson plans. It is possible to use Photon during other school activities (not only related to computer science).
