What is Ozobot?
Ozobot is a programmable small robot, which is an innovative way to teach subjects like programming, math and science.
Simple and intuitive to use on the one hand, highly programmable and versatile on the other. The robot can be used with browser tools and related apps, you can play games or create music with it. The robot can also be used with small children by programming it with color codes drawn on paper. It can be integrated to multiple subjects from arts to science.

EAF Evaluation is an academically-backed approach to evaluating the pedagogical design of a product. EAF evaluators assess the product using criteria that covers the most essential pedagogical aspects in the learning experience.
Certified by Education Alliance Finland
The supported learning goals are identified by mapping the product against the selected reference curriculum and soft skills definitions most relevant for the 21st century.
- K-2-ETS1-1. Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
- 3-5-ETS1-1. Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
