While there are already many educational robot toys on the market, few of them focus on a crucial stage of brain development. Around age four the brain lays the groundwork for the development of logic, but MatataLab has announced its Kickstarter campaign for its educational robot kit.
MatataLab aims to help to foster the brain development through interactive, physical gameplay with hands-on coding blocks and the feedback from the MatataBot educational robot. The MatataLab educational robot kit was designed for children of ages 4 to 9, allowing families and educators to enjoy exploring the children’s first foray into programming, music, and art, making it one of the first educational robots indiscriminative of race, gender or education level.
