Educational Insights Artie 3000 The Coding Drawing Robot, STEM Toy
You write the code and Artie 3000 Robot draws the lines! Easy to learn and cool to create with, Artie 3000 also comes ready to draw with preprogrammed designs, shapes, and games.
This toy was built with 3 fundamentals in mind: STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and STEM-powered fun; Introduces the basics of coding; Fuels creativity and imagination
Artie 3000 is Wi-Fi-enabled, Kids can learn how to code shapes and patterns on a Mac, PC, or tablet. Small but mighty.
Kids will program their creations using the robot’s built-in apps, and then Artie will draw it right on any piece of paper using one of the four included washable markers. You can use your own markers if it’s between 8 to 10.5-millimeter diameter thickness. After Artie is all powered up, his own Wi-Fi connection will show up on your own device settings. Patience is the key! Wait a bit and Let your device get fully connected.
The pack comes with three very useful cards to start out, which I have dubbed the Artie Bible. They break down how to code shapes that are categorized as easy (a square), medium (a mandala), and hard (a game board, such as tic-tac-toe). Kids can use these instructions to start off coding the basics for the first time, or they can use one of the preprogrammed artwork, games, and shapes to get a feel for basic coding.
Artie UI is the starting point. Kids can go beyond, using other popular computer languages. After they mastered Artie UI, they can move on to more difficult and challenging coding languages as listed below:
Starting Point: The Artie UI (User Interface) is your starting point for learning to code with Artie. You will learn to program Artie using drag-and-drop command blocks. Try it out!
Remote Control: Use your mouse to click the buttons, or use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move Artie in all directions
Point & Click: Using your mouse, click the simulation grid to draw a picture. Artie will follow along
Blockly: Using the same drag-and-drop commands as the Artie UI, Blockly lets you explore more advanced programming techniques
Snap!: Snap! is similar to Blockly, but with even more advanced coding functions for serious study of computer science
Python: Develop a program for Artie using Python, a high-level, multipurpose programming language
Kids write the code and Artie 3000 Robot connects those dots. This bot helps with coding and fuels their creativity and imagination while they’re learning. Kids can test their program on the online simulator, then set Artie on any sheet of paper and Watch as he draws what is programmed! It is the cutest coding robot.
There is a new coding toy in the market (in 2020): Learning Resources Botley 2.0 Coding Robot. It will be one of the bestseller toys going up to Christmas. Visit the page, you might like it. There is another 2020 new release from Educational Insights: Spindoodle Drawing and Guessing Game.
