77% of parents believe coding is the most important skill their child will need to succeed in the digital economy (CodeWizards HQ, 2020 Survey). Playing with Artie Max jumpstarts a child’s interest in STEM and allows them to practice and understand skills that can help them in their future careers. With the addition of Art in the STEM curriculum, Artie Max makes the STEAM coding experience easy for parents to set up and kids to start coding right out of the box. Simply connect Artie Max to any WIFI-enabled device, code your design, and watch Artie complete your creation on paper. Kids are inspired to up the level of coding difficulty as they go from simple shapes to colorful artworks such as a spirograph using more complex coding languages like Python.
"What’s most special about Artie Max is the ability to grow with it from drag and drop Blockly all the way to learning C++, one of the most well known programming languages in the world," said Lisa Guili, General Manager of Educational Insights. "Not only are kids growing their coding knowledge with Artie Max, but at the same time they are building their confidence and drawing inspiration to learn skills that can potentially be used the rest of their lives. Artie Max embraces all components of STEAM by educating kids on how to problem solve and express themselves creatively."
Artie Max is packed with creative possibilities as kids explore powerful technology like edge detection, line detection, and remote control functionality. Artie’s light-up mouth and LED eyes can also be coded to different colors and expressions, further showing off this robot’s personality through emotions and sounds when creating the works of art using all three included colored pens.
Artie Max retails for MSRP $109.99 and can currently be found at www.educationalinsights.com. Visit Codewithartie.com to get started on coding with Artie Max – find tutorials, coding challenges and seasonal designs for endless play.
