The Wise Club is a South Korean education company, which provides extra tuition after the school day has ended. The Wise Club’s headquarters are in Seoul, but it has 50 offices and over 1000 contracted teachers who work across the country. It has ordered over 2000 Marty the Robots to assist with teaching its students to code.

Marty the Robot has also been named a finalist in the Best New Product category in the 2018 Made in Scotland Awards which celebrate Scottish innovation.

Robotical founder, Dr Alexander (Sandy) Enoch, comments: “We have had an excellent response to Marty since the launch, and being named a finalist in the Made in Scotland Awards is just further evidence that hopefully what we are doing is making a difference in educating the next generation of coders and engineers. Marty the Robot is all about taking the technology I used during my PhD in robotics, and making it accessible."

Usable from primary school to university - Marty is a real walking robot for the price of a smart toy. For kids, makers, educators, and anybody who just wants a cute robot Marty makes learning about programming, electronics, and mechanical engineering a fun and engaging process...
