Sony’s New Coding And Robotics Kit Will Help Kids Learn About Technology

There is little doubt that in the future, more jobs will be rooted in technology than ever. This means that just like topics like maths and science, kids these days should also start learning about technology at a young age. This sentiment has been shared by many around the world, some of whom feel that such topics should be mandatory in schools.

While we wait for more educational institutions and governments to maybe put that into practice, in the meantime, it seems that Sony is laying the foundations of educational tools by announcing the KOOV Trial Kit, the company’s second coding, robotics, and design kit to its STEAM education offerings.

This follows the launch of the KOOV Educator Kit which was launched back in 2018, and has been designed to be an abbreviated take on the kit, where it would introduce core skills in coding, robotics, and design. This will help students develop the necessary basic skills as well as the thought processes behind it.

According to Sony executive, Michiko Araki Kelley, “Sony looks to the next generation of young innovators as we head into the future, and we created the KOOV Trial Kit to provide a wider base of youngsters with the opportunity to take a peek into the coding and robotics universe. By embracing STEAM subjects in school, we hope students will be better prepared with the skills needed for their future careers.”
