Description

The Fable robot was designed from the ground up to meet the needs of educators – providing them with a fun and easy way to teach 21st-century skills and STEM subjects and to bring coding to life.

Fable is a modular construction set that students use to create their own robot in just a few minutes. Students can quickly click the different modules together in infinite ways to build their robot’s body and then program it for sensing and movement.

The Fable Play! Class Set+ is a PLUS to have in the classroom. Consisting of 16 Fable Spin Modules PLUS all the accessories to go with it, this mega-set ensures all students have the opportunity to maximize their learning with Fable.

Depending on their experience level, students can program Fable using Blockly, a visual programming language, or Python®, a text-based language. The included USB hub enables wireless programming from a PC, Mac, iOS, and Chromebook.

Also available is the Fable Face app, which is found on both the Mac App Store and Google Play. Fable Face enables students to build robots that are interactive, social individuals and experiment with algorithms to control Fable’s expressions using the phone’s accelerometer.

The Fable Play! Class Set+ is intended to be shared by 16 to 48 students, following a ratio of one to three students per set.
