iRobot enters the classroom with acquisition of Root Robotics 1

Root is a two-wheeled mobile device that operates on flat surfaces, much like a Roomba. Users can program Root to draw, scan colors, respond to touch and sound, play music and more. In classrooms, Root can be programmed to climb magnetic whiteboards. It comes with three levels of code language, and it’s based on technology originally developed by the Wyss Institute at Harvard University. A single Root costs $199, and classroom packages of up to 30 robots sell for up to $6,000.

iRobot doesn’t expect the acquisition of Root to impact its 2019 bottom line, but the company says it supports its plans to branch into educational STEM products and to make robotic technology accessible to educators, students and parents. iRobot has a solid track record. With Roomba, it became one of the first companies to successfully introduce robots to homes, and if it’s successful, Root might find a similar appeal in classrooms.
