What is an Ozobot?

Together with thousands of educators, Ozobot has redefined the role of robotics in school–going from STEM labs and supplemental programs to increasing engagement across all grades and subjects, including Math, English Language Arts, and more. Ozobot puts the A in STEAM with 2 Ways to Code–on screens with blocks and screen-free with colors–because STEM skills alone won’t prepare students for the jobs of the future. The company’s mission is to give all children the opportunity to go from consuming to creating with technology. For more information on Ozobot, please visit
