New App Released for Teaching Robot Programming to Children with Special Needs

Introducing an accessible robot app by Zyrobotics, designed to teach children with special needs how to program robots. Kids today are surrounded by technology - from their game consoles to their music players to their mobile phones. By teaching kids how to program, we show them how to become an active part in defining the new technological world we live in. Programming is a creative and challenging occupation that provides immediate feedback, is highly suited to satisfy a child’s natural curiosity, and can make math and science enjoyable to learn. Zyrobotics has always been focused on making all aspects of learning fun and accessible to all. Although typical programming interfaces are not designed to be accessible to children with disabilities, over the last few years, we have conducted workshops that encourage kids with special needs to program Mindstorm robots.
