The Main Purpose of Artie.

Artie the drawing and coding robot comes already set up with designs shapes and some entertaining games. However, the idea is to create your very own designs by writing the code to program Artie to draw your shapes and patterns. This programming will encourage your child to learn and not only is it easy to code but great fun as well.

There are a number of how-to videos to help you get started and there is support online if you need it so that you can learn everything that can be created with Artie the Coding Robot.

Educational and Creative.

Left and right brain skills are encouraged by learning with Artie. The coding Robot stimulates the imagination and encourages creativity while, at the same time, helping to develop analytical and logical skills.

We feel that children will love playing with Artie, designing new and personal designs and begin to develop the skill of creativity and imagination through drawings and patterns.

Using the easy technology of the Artie 3000 will also help other parts of the brain, such as geometry, maths and basic programming.

How You Should use the Artie 3000 :

  • Program the robot to move backward or forwards left or right and ten and then fit together or disengage the pens for drawing.
  • There is a drawing simulator where you can test your code before letting Artie have a go at drawing your code.
  • There are plenty of videos on the CodeWithArtie website where you can learn more about coding and draw with Artie.

Verdict

As part of the STEM and STEAM curriculum, one of the most popular activities in schools is an interest in coding and many parents believe this interest should be encouraged regardless of the child’s career path. The Artie 3000 will do this through the use of drawings started by the drag and drop code although the pay-off may be some time in the future.

Remember you write the code Artie draws the lines.

We believe that this educational toy? will become one of the great hits of the year and is certainly worth the cost involved.
