Testimonials

k8 allowed my students to see a tangible object as a mathematical problem that needed to be decoded, decomposed, and broken down into manageable parts. By doing so, they understood how to analyze, brainstorm and carry out a solution to various given problems that required analytical thinking to find a solution.

Joe Archer, Grade 6 Teacher, Technology Advocate

The k8 robot is a must have in the classroom. It genuinely sparks curiosity with all levels of kids. k8 embodies the design principals and allows students creativity and inspiration to thrive and develop. You cannot go wrong with k8 for your classroom.
