When creating a great product for students, every detail matters. Photon is the world’s first robot that develops and grows with each student.

Photon provides an engaging way to teach students coding as early as Pre-K to middle school and beyond. Coding teaches students skills that transfer to other areas: Collaboration, Problem Solving, Computational Thinking and Creativity.


Photon Academy

Enables teachers to integrate age appropriate coding into lessons and engage students in content.

Discover. Develop. Advance.

Discover the magic of modern education. Photon is the most technologically advanced educational robot available on the market. It has a whole range of interactive sensors, making it a great teaching tool and perfectly diversifies classes. It is extremely durable and ready to use right out of the box.

Perfect for both younger and older students. Photon is able to be used in every stage of education. Teachers can use specially prepared class scenarios to introduce students to the basics of programming or take advantage of more advanced opportunities thanks to the applications available.

Teaches group work and develops logical thinking. The robot in connection with the scenarios is adapted to conduct group activities. The element of creativity in class helps students develop the critical thinking and collaboration skills they need to succeed in the future.

integrate coding and robotics into any grade and any subject

DR. CHRISTOPHER CATON

We used to think that we needed a different robotics coding solution for every grade level or range. Photon provides the kind of flexibility that allows us to integrate coding and robotics into any grade and any subject. Even teachers who are apprehensive to use technology have found Photon to be just as friendly to use as its looks suggest. Photon has allowed us to be creative in designing assessments that not only meet the standards of the subject but integrate the STEM principles that we sometimes struggle to integrate across the curriculum.

Photon is robust because it lets students engage at their own level and in their own way, but also ensuring there are opportunities for problem-solving in every interaction. Whether it’s a preschooler acting out the program as he’s programming or a middle school student wanting to make Photon do a dance complete with color changes and loops in the programming, students jump into thinking with Photon within 30 seconds of being introduced to it, and they can all learn something in a short time by interacting with it.
