The way that we teach programming today is by giving kids a text editor and some instructions. It's so much more engaging to give kids a robot and challenging them to create a robotic DJ for your party or a moving alarm clock in the morning.
From hundreds of hours working teachers and students, we believe that Romo helps kids develop the concepts of programming at an early age. Because Romo puts life into programming, it's as engaging for girls as it is for boys. There is a gender gap in women in engineering, and Romo can help close this gender gap.
