Root Coding Robot
Computer programming is one of the fastest growing stem fields. To date it has been challenging to find tool with wide range appeal to teach new coders in the k-12 range codes. The Root Coding Robot was designed to versatile and make coding approachable to children. The Root has three different coding level that range from drag and drop graphic blocks at level one to learning the structure and syntax of python and java at level three. So it covers a wide range of skills. There are two modes gaming and coding. The games are designed to be very interactive and teach you the basics
The Root Coding Robot has a tremendous amount of functionality 50 sensors and actuators. It can drive around on its own and use the front sensors to make sure it does not fall of the edge of a table. It has the ability to pick and put down a marker, so it can make some interesting drawings. It can do color scans using its internal sensor. It can also climb magnetic surfaces (such as a white boards). It has touch sensors and accelerometer which react to both touch and motion. Another neat feature is that the Root can erase its own on a white board or the provided grid. Root Robotics has also indicated that they will be adding accessories, but we don’t expect them by Black Friday 2018.
Expected Price and Black Friday Savings: The Root is currently priced at $199 which includes; the Root Robot, Foldout whiteboard grid, Vinyl Cling pack (used for games and other activities), charging cable and two dry erase markers. While they are currently backordered, we except there to be a huge push this Thanksgiving.

A coding robot toy is a great STEM learning tool and will certainly be popular. We expect they will sell out very quickly on Black Friday and won’t be any in stock by Cyber Monday. Given how new the company and how quickly the first round of Roots sold out, we think they may offer pre-orders deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018. We will be keeping a close eye on the stock levels and deal for coding robots before Black Friday 2018, so you don’t have to.
