Guest Blog: BinaryBots to Bring British Ed-tech Stateside

Yorkshire-based BinaryBots (developed by CBIS) will be making its debut at CES 2018 as it launches its mission to help American children develop their coding and robotics skills using the innovative pocket-sized computer, BBC micro:bit.

The toys have been well received in Great Britain following the surge in popularity of coding and digital creativity in the wake of the BBC micro:bit launch in 2016. One million devices were distributed free of charge to British school children and this led to a huge growth in the number of children learning to code.

The BBC micro:bit launched in America in 2017 and now BinaryBots is bringing its expertise to the US market to help children discover more about coding and robotics through play.

Chris Burgess, Founder and Managing Director of BinaryBots, said:

“Code is now the world’s language and it is vital that children develop essential STEM skills for the future. Engaging with electronics in this exciting way at a young age really helps to motivate youngsters and develop their interest. We have seen great success in the British market with this offering, and we are all looking forward to our first appearance at CES 2018, and to meet customers in the US market to further share our knowledge and expertise.”
