    Root, the hexagonal robot developed at Harvard University, teaches children to code and guides their growth and coding skills.

    How it works: working with whiteboard markers, Root can be stuck to a whiteboard or easy-to-clean surface, and then be programmed to draw from an app loaded onto a tablet. The robot’s ease of use is compared to a tablet app, and was designed to keep children interested with differing activities depending on the child’s proficiency.
