Photon - teacher's assistant
Photon awakens the curiosity of students and motivates them to learn new technologies. Classes with Photon help teachers create educational situations conducive to building interest in programming and STEM subjects.
Helps in the implementation of classes
Using Photon during classes teaches children how to work in a group, arouses their curiosity and engages emotions. A rich set of lessons adapted to the core curriculum is available for conducting classes. The robot is adapted to work both in early school education and in grades 4-8.
Don't waste your time on technical problems
Photon does not need any configuration and can be operated by any teacher without prior preparation. The operation of the robot is intuitive, and the basic functions do not require technical training. Photon's battery provides up to 8 hours of operation on a single charge. Thanks to this, instead of solving technical problems, you can focus on conducting classes.
A tool for modern education
See an example lesson
Programming is not just writing code or rows of characters and numbers. It's a skill that supports logical thinking, planning and problem solving. With Photon, classes are reaching a higher level. Children acquire knowledge naturally, combining theory and practice.
Lesson plans for conducting classes
Lessons for education have been developed to facilitate classroom use. Teachers using the lessons learn the operation of the robot while showing children how to use new technologies safely. The lesson database is constantly expanded on the online educational platform where creative teachers can share their ideas for classes.
Applications used in primary schools
Can be used in most institutions.
Photon EDU App
Application dedicated to teachers who are beginners in programming. The application can be combined with ready-made lessons adapted to specific age groups. Entering the code from the selected lesson gives access only to those functions that are needed for the given class. Photon Edu allows you to create your own lesson plans.
Photon Coding App
An application designed for teachers who already have programming experience. All functions are available without restrictions, so teachers can create their own lesson plans. Photon can be used for all subject areas.
Programming in an elementary school.
Develop your students' talents.
Photon Blocks (7+)
Interface for children who can already read. At this stage, they create complex operations and configure sequences using colored instruction blocks. Children develop analytical skills, learn to design complex program sequences using sensors. They develop the skill of early error detection and optimization of written programs. Programming screen available through the Photon EDU, Photon Coding and Photon Magic Bridge applications.
Photon Code (10+)
Use computers to work with Photon
Discover the possibilities of the Photon Magic Bridge application.
Programming the robot using Scratch
Photon is integrated with the most popular tool for learning programming in schools - Scratch. In addition to the standard possibilities offered by Scratch, the tool has been expanded to include blocks for issuing commands to Photon and readings from its sensors. It enables programming of up to 8 robots at the same time.
Makey Makey integration
The kit for creating inventions and educational robot is a combination that will teach creative thinking. It can be used not only in technical classes, but also in physics when discussing current conduction issues.
Use Photon in primary school:
- Adapted to work at all stages of education.
- Free access to class lessons
- Compatible with devices available in school.
- The most popular programming learning tools, integrated with Photon, collected in one application.
