Born from futuristic ideas, Sanbot is ready to transform everyday education into extraordinary learning opportunities. As intelligent and interactive as they come, Sanbot can learn to do anything, including recognizing students' faces and reminding them what they need to get done. More than just a service robot, Sanbot provides authentic educational value and gives students feedback they can go on to use to improve their projects as they get more comfortable with robotics and technology!

Eduporium is home to some of the most advanced educational technologies, including affordable, high-end 3D printers, CNC machines, VR systems, computers, and more. While we fully endorse each of these products and their value in 21st century education, we tend to gravitate a bit more towards technology that enables the littlest learners to get a feel for what it's like to work with their hands and engage in authentic problem solving. Sometimes, we’re even comfortable recommending technology that’s suitable for children who haven’t even entered kindergarten yet. You guessed it - Code-a-pillar is one of those technologies.
Some of us have already landed in San Antonio and the rest of the Eduporium team is flying in at various times on Sunday! We’re spending most of the day tomorrow getting our brand new booth (No. 1763) ready to showcase and putting the finishing touches on our display. If you’re so inclined to come visit us during our three days at ISTE, we would certainly welcome everyone, especially teachers, librarians, administrators, and makerspace leaders! If you need some more convincing, here are some extra incentives for you to drop by our interactive booth!
You didn't forget about our daily trivia contest, did you? With one quick sign-up, you could have the opportunity to win $100 worth of STEM, maker, and PBL tools to help revamp your classroom, library, or makerspace (or make it pop even more)!
For this week’s experiment, we’re going to be taking a look at the newest of the brand new EdTech tools we have in our store. Developed and manufactured in France, Marbotic is an interactive way for early learners to get familiar with numbers, letters, and technology. So far, they’ve created three different kits and we were lucky enough to receive them in our office just in time for this week’s Eduporium Experiment! We decided to focus on the Marbotic Bundle for this post, which includes both Smart Letters and Smart Numbers.
What are some of the things you think of when you think of maker education? MakerEd includes everything from informal constructive play with everyday objects, glue, and tape to large-scale 3D printing and digital fabrication. Modern makerspaces and fab labs have become the place to be for creative-minded students to showcase their making talents and thousands of schools have responded by building in-house areas for making. As maker education continues to evolve, so too do the tools, the mindsets, and the finished products students are creating. So, what makes modern maker education such a powerful force in K-12 education and beyond?
You may remember a few months back we were excited to announce we had been approved as a registered provider of professional development. Well, we finally got our PD feet wet last week and led our first hands-on teacher workshop in collaboration with the Genesee Valley BOCES located in Le Roy, New York.
Parents and teachers sometimes shy away from introducing younger children to coding and robotics because they are under the impression that these subject areas are too complex for kids in the early grades. We are pleased to say, however, that, thanks to the recent revolution in educational robotics tools, there is no reason to fear exposing children to coding! Tech companies have caught on to the fact that students need certain tech and STEM skills in order to succeed in the future and have designed tools that incorporate simplicity, authenticity, and problem solving all in one. In no other EdTech product is this more true than with the Coder MiP - an incredibly interactive, robotics-based early introduction to legitimate coding.
At Eduporium, we know what it takes to provide an enriched, authentic, and inclusive 21st century education that will truly prepare today’s kids for real-world challenges. We also know this isn’t easy for schools and teachers to attain. There are burdens to innovating in education, including, most notably, high costs of modern learning tools as well as not knowing where to begin. By creating simplified consulting programs and offering every opportunity for savings on the technology kids need, we’re doing our part to help ensure every student, teacher, and parent has access to 21st century tools so that kids may receive a true 21st century education. Here are some ways we do this that you probably didn’t know about.
