Marty the Robot Helping with STEM skills in Primary Schools
Friday, 15 December 2017
Chamber member Augmentum 360 is taking the lead in inspiring Scotland’s future scientists and engineers by donating a Marty the Robot kit to the Coding Club at Dalgety Bay Primary School. Marty is an educational robot created by Dr Sandy Enoch and Finlay Page from Robotical who joined Andrew Watson and Mario Panetta from Augmentum 360 in presenting Marty to the pupils.
Augmentum were approached by Robotical to help them to plan the initial production run for Marty and they were so impressed by its capabilities that they decided to buy one and donate it to Dalgety Bay Primary, where Andrew’s wife teaches. Marty was such a hit at Dalgety Bay that Augmentum are going to purchase more of them to donate to other schools in Fife.
