Introduce Your Child to Coding with Ozobot – A Social Robot
The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
Summertime is here and the kids are immersing themselves in video games and YouTube. While these can be fun, wouldn’t you feel better if they were playing with technology AND learning something? I know I would! This year, our 5th grader took a Coding class at school and he talked about what he learned at dinner. This peaked the interest in our youngest son. Unfortunately, our 9 year old is not old enough to take the Coding Class at school, however, he can still learn coding!
Thanks to Best Buy, we had the opportunity to check out the Ozobot Evo. Our 9 year old (and 11 year old) loved it!!! I recently learned STEM (when I read about Kamau Bobb), which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEM products encourage kids to develop core skills in these areas. At Best Buy, you’ll find products from basic learning games to advanced toys designed to stimulate a child‘s mind in the STEM areas, helping to develop logic and problem solving skills.

In addition to the Ozobot Evo Starter Pack, you’ll find the Ozobot Bit Starter Pack (SKU 5734607) at Best Buy. With the Ozobot 2.0 Bit Starter Pack, your child will draw colorful designs that Bit’s optical sensors read as movement commands. Ozobot is unique in that the initial learning is understanding that colors can dictate action, which leads to cause/effect building blocks for future programming. You’ll find over 20 activities included with the Ozobot Bit Starter Pack and even more that are downloadable from the Ozobot app. The product is ideal for ages 6 and up and retails for $59.99.
I highly recommend the Ozobot Evo Starter Pack for families with kids who are interested in technology and coding! A big thanks to Best Buy for this opportunity to check it out and share about it.
