Today we are missing over 1 million IT specialist

Rotoy believes that addressing the upcoming employment gap challenge of the 21st century is providing children with quality education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – STEM – subjects as early as possible.

 

We want to prevent this labour shortage issue with our STEM toys by uplifting children’s interest in STEM and creating an initial knowledge base to introduce STEM careers at an early stage, reducing the hampers to these fields in the future.

 

Here we focus on the field of robotics and the “world language of the 21st century” – programming.

Women make up less than 25% of STEM graduates.

In the EU, women are significantly underrepresented in scientific and technical occupations, accounting for only 25% of the total number of employees.

 

Rotoy will help change this and aims to target girls at the same level as boys to enable early entry into STEM professions regardless of their gender. With such measures, we will address the imbalance in the STEM industry, by making the field more accessible in earlier cognitive stages and preparing children in the best possible way for the working environment of the coming decades – teaching 21st-century skills.

What we offer

Fun & exciting learning approach with minimal parental assistance

We want to create a fun yet educative toy that offers an innovative learning process by a problem-solving method and engaging storytelling. Rotoy is a pocket-sized robot that is controlled with an already widely used tool in schools:

 

– BBC micro, a bit computer
– Microsoft Makecode, simple to use block programming

Long-term learning process with our subscription plan

We believe that the toy should offer long-lasting playtime and be educative at the same time. Rotoy will help your child develop STEM skills through our tailored-made missions that include the foundation of robotics and programming.

Quality screen time while learning robotics & programing at home

We want to bring a knowledge of STEM (including robotics and programming) courses to your home, through our digital teacher, Rotoy.

 

Instead of aimless games solely focused on passing time through blinking lights, repetitive sounds and images, Rotoy offers thrilling stories filled with challenging missions that are then tested on the physical robot, presenting concrete results and showing value in their learning.

Description of the box

Sustainable
Development Goals

In our starter kit, your will receive robot base in parts, microbit and batteries. Next to that, you will get a code to access your Rotoy profile, choose a story and start solving your first mission.

Every month, you will receive brand new package with additional robot parts, 3D printed roads or castles, and maps, that will help you solve your missions and continue the story.

Your robot can upgrade! Once you have completed all the missions, you can start new subscription with more advanced robot. You will be able to solve even cooler missions and become a programming expert.

About us

“We believe that the best way to teach something is by telling a story”

Rotoy team was founded in Odense, a robotics hotspot and the birth city of H.C. Andersen- a storyteller. This inspired us to combine both into our idea. Our vision is to bring robotics and programming closer to both genders by making learning process alive.

Vedrana Rogoznica

Business Developer

Vedrana as a child always thought that robot toys are for boys, since there was no brand targeting their toys towards girls. Now she wants to give every girl a chance to find interest in robotics. Vedrana is responsible for our business development with a marketing background and experience.

Krzysztof Zielinski

Product Developer

Chris has always had a wild imagination and a love for technology. He would build and break stuff, to later fix it again, and make it better… or not. Chris is responsible for our product development with a robotics background and experience.

Joscha Geister

Business Developer

Joscha didn’t have the opportunity as a child to be introduced early and playfully to the world of robotics and programming. He now wants to give this opportunity to children on their educational journey. Joscha is responsible for our business development with a finance background and experience.

The future of Rotoy

Extended personalization

We want to create a unique experience for every child. Kids will be able to create their own individual robot, to choose their own character and the story.

Rotoy community

We will connect kids, parents and teachers in one Rotoy community, where everyone can share their success stories, troubles or advice to help each other and grow together.

Augmented reality

Implementing augmented reality into our stories and missions will increase the experience of learning while playing with Rotoy.
