Root® rt1 Coding Robot -
Using Robots to Empower Learning.

Take learning code to the next level

At iRobot®, we believe in a world where anyone can code. The Root® Coding robot is an educational robot that engages learners with innovation and creativity through hands-on, accessible learning for all.
Bringing code to life through art, music and hands-on activities, the Root®rt1 coding robot delivers a revolutionary coding experience suitable for any expertise, from pre-readers to advanced coders. The free Root® Coding App is packed with lessons, projects, and activities designed to progressively challenge coders of any experience level.

Not just your average coding robot

The Root® rt1 coding robot’s combination of features and sensors appeal to students of all interests.

Children can code Root® to draw artwork, scan colours, play music, respond to touch, light, and sound, and climb whiteboard walls, all while exploring the fundamentals of robotics. Students and Teachers can use the Root® to combine the content and skills from multiple interdisciplinary subjects into one learning experience.

3 Learning Levels

Propel learning forwards with additional, standards-aligned premium content that is available with a subscription to Root® Academy.
Easy for beginners, but still challenging enough to keep experienced coders engaged. Students begin with Graphical coding at Level 1, where graphical blocks teach the essential coding logic skills. Next, at Level 2, students advance to hybrid coding, where hybrid drag and drop language builds computational fluency. Finally at Level 3, students will learn the structure and syntax of professional, full text coding languages in Swift- Python and JavaScript coming soon!
