Shape Robotics helps bring education into the 21st century.
Fable helps to motivate students to embrace new technologies and build self-confidence in the 21st century skills and STEAM.
Fable is a modular robotics system that allows students to create their own robotin seconds. Students can assemble modules together in many different configurations. Build custom robot bodies, use the inbuilt sensors and program the robot’s movement.
“We had been wanting to find a way to start robotics with our Y7 and Y8ʼs, then we saw Fable and it really appealed to us. The best thing is the discussions between the pupils. The problem-solving and thinking skills are a joy to witness.“
The programming interface, Fable Blockly, is divided into different levels depending on the students’ level of competence. This helps students gradually progress. Fable Blockly is available for PC, Mac, Chromebook and iPads.
Fable Connect – Removing distancing in social distancing.
Our Fable Connect robot helps more than 400 children on a daily basis, attending school from home, a hospital bed, or wherever they are.
Attending school through Fable Connect gives the absent student a real presence in the classroom, as it allows the student to see, hear, look around, and speak through the robot.
Being able to control the robot, the student can attend excursions or just have fun and play in the schoolyard, feeling a part of the social life in the class – The student can even attend private birthday parties through the Fable Connect.
The Fable story starts in 2011 at the Technical University of Denmark just outside Copenhagen.
Moises Pacheco started his collaboration with David Johan Christensen, an associate professor and robot researcher.
