Engage! K12 makes learning fun yet focused. The theme-based activities ignite students’ curiosity by bringing abstract concepts to life using robots
The included simulation tools allow students to run their activities without using real robots, making deployment versatile and more cost-effective, lowering the student/robot ratio needed
Engage! K12 activities are web-based and accessible from any device: Chromebook, PC and Mac using a web-browser. This architecture allows every school to enjoy a fast and easy deployment
The easy-to-use interface allows teachers to set up seamlessly their classroom and find activities by grade, subject, and standard, track students' achievements and quickly measure learning outcomes
Engage! K12 makes it easy to teach coding and programming. The curriculum is organized into grade-specific courses where students move at their own pace through theme-based lessons to learn concepts and apply them to virtual or physical robots. Engage! K12 includes everything you need to teach programming in a fun, engaging way, including lesson plans, teacher guides, answer keys, and standards alignment.
The ready-to-use, standards-aligned lesson-plans allow teachers to integrate project-based learning into what they already teach, using robots. From Storytelling to Math, educators can assign a relevant Engage! K12 activity and students will follow instructions and apply a concept to a meaningful challenge where they can explore, experiment and learn.
Engage! K12 allows educators to control, engage and monitor your class in a whole new way, while monitoring the students' performance:

"My students struggle to understand these topics. By using these robots, my students find the math lessons more fun and engaging. Best of all, I didn't need to know about robotics in order to use the robots in my classroom."
"Our goal [in selecting and equipping the district's high schools with robots] is to develop students who use science, technology, engineering and mathematics to solve real-world problems and to provide them with exposure to additional career opportunities."
"I would like to say how impressed I was with the ability of the robots to generate immediate interest and its ability to captivate an audience. I used it to show how at classes we will be using different techniques and methods to learn mathematics through a hands on approach. As soon as I showed them the robot, I had not only the parents' attention, but all the children in the classroom stopped and were enthralled by the demonstration."
