Root is a robot to teach kids how to code. There are lots of programs in it, but one flaw stands out. The robot itself costs about $200, and to continue to learn to code, one must pay an additional $5 a month, although there is a free trial, which I used to test the next levels.
The things Root can do are very unique. For example, one can use other users’ code to make Root act a certain way, light up a certain color, or say a certain thing.
Other than the costly program, Root is a wonderful way to learn coding. It is simple enough for younger users, while at the same time hard enough for them to learn a multitude of things, from what coding means, to how coding works, to building code blocks. I would recommend the Root Robot to anyone above the age of 5 or 6, and even anyone older!
