Meet ABii, the interactive learning robot created by Van Robotics!

Van Robotics has created an exciting and engaging learning tool for children called ABii. This robot is packed with math, reading, and Social Emotional Learning activities, and has a friendly and supportive personality to help students achieve academic excellence, boost self-confidence, and cultivate character and leadership abilities.

ABii has recently joined the extended learning program in 23 BE GREAT Academy sites throughout the Crescent region, aiding members in gaining ground on skills they may have missed due to Covid. These ABiis are also part of a research study led by the SC Department of Education and conducted by Van Robotics. Over 150 middle and high school pupils from all over South Carolina assembled these ABii robots, learning about AI, machine learning, and social robotics in the build process.

The ABiis will contribute to improved comprehension and heightened confidence in math, reading, ESOL and SEL for BE GREAT Academy members. The study's objective is to assess the efficacy of Van Robotics' Classroom to Career program in fostering STEM interest among students ranging from 4th to 12th grade.

As part of this initiative, we are honored and delighted to welcome ABii and celebrate the GREAT work done by students, developers and educators. Thank you, @VanRobotics, for providing this wonderful tool to our members!
