South Africa’s Robotics curriculum (2023)

With the South African Department of Basic Education (DBE) introducing coding and robotics into the school curriculum for Grades R to 3 and Grade 7 in 2023, we at EduBoard are ready to provide schools with the ultimate learning companion.

Meet Marty the Humanoid Robot

A real programmable humanoid robot with character! With Marty learners can be shown how fun and exciting technology can be…. and that anyone can get into it!

We have had the opportunity, over the course of 2022, to showcase our friend Marty and he has created quite a stir. We could see how educators were intrigued and excited about how this humanoid robot could be a revolutionary tool for making STEM learning engaging for all students.

Marty is designed for educators and learners, so is very simple to use and incredibly robust.

What is the robotics curriculum?

The Coding and Robotics curriculum aims to guide and prepare learners to solve problems, think critically, work collaboratively and creatively, function in a digital and information-driven world, apply digital and ICT skills, and to transfer these skills to solve everyday problems.

How Marty helps teachers teach the new curriculum

Marty can walk, dance and eyebrow-wiggle like no rolling robot can! Marty is equipped with a unique walking mechanism, with each individual limb controlled by a separate motor. This means Marty can turn, kick a ball and so much more, while also being more stable than other walking robots.

Marty comes with extensive technical support from our dedicated team, and an ever-growing set of curriculum-linked lessons and activities suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced coders.

We really believe that the teaching of coding and robotics will equip and expose learners to digital literacy, virtual reality, augmented reality, machine learning, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things.

Marty the Robot is the best value-for-money humanoid robot on the market.

Marty the Humanoid Robot – designed to make learning about computer science and coding a fun and engaging experience.  Marty is the perfect tool to introduce students to the new Robotics curriculum in South Africa in 2023.
