Crowdsourcing Mornings: Codey Rocky Coding Robot

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Codey Rocky is an entry-level coding robot for STEM education, suitable for children ages 6 and up. The combination of easy-to-use robotics hardware with graphical programming gives all children the opportunity to take their first steps into the world of code and compose their first “Hello World!” statement at the same time as they explore their creativity.  Codey is the detachable controller that holds all the magic. It includes more than 10 electronic modules that can be controlled via code. Rocky is the car that lets you take Codey anywhere you want, so that your clever programs can be run everywhere.

Codey comes with a built-in 6-axis gyroscope so that you can control the games you code by moving or tilting your controller, and see the game respond to your actions.  Included with Codey Rocky is more than 20 learning guides for getting started with graphical programming and Python code. Seamlessly progress from one challenge to another, until you are ready to take on the advanced Python language – and simply convert your code in one click.  Makeblock makes education better with robots and drones that kids can build and code. Codey Rocky is their latest and most accessible coding companion. This two-part robot comes with advanced functionality including AI and IoT, and a range of sensors, so that beginners can gradually progress into advanced programming.

As of January 22nd, this project has raised $138,000 of their $100,000 goal. This project has 4 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $79, you will get one Codey Rocky.  For a pledge of $150, you will get two Codey Rocky robots.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
