Global Launch of Robo Garden

Giving Teens & Tweens Computer Coding Literacy

CALGARY, Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - METI today announces the global launch of RoboGarden, a web-based app that teaches teens and tweens computer coding literacy.


Learn by Doing
RoboGarden is a learn-by-doing, game-style environment. It gives students a fun, step-by-step way to learn the building blocks of programming from the basics to advanced concepts. It teaches the computer languages that professionals use to author software, smart phone apps and robotic control systems.

A Head Start for High Paying Jobs
"RoboGarden gives today's students a head start and a significant advantage for their careers. In a substantial and ever growing number of jobs, programming skills are just as important as skating is to hockey players and asking questions is to journalists," remarks Dr. Mohamed Elhabiby, President of RoboGarden Inc.

By progressing through all levels of RoboGarden, students will have the coding skills they need to build their own apps and even take on freelance programming assignments.

For Independent Learning or School Courses
RoboGarden lets students progress through lessons at their own pace. And it empowers parents and teachers, who don't have a technical background, to guide children through their coding lessons. Now every school with an Internet connection can offer beginner to advanced RoboGarden coding courses.

Fostering Community-wide Innovation
"We believe that RoboGarden will create bright new opportunities for individuals and entire communities. Coding literacy is an essential driver of success in the digital economy. Cities with a critical mass of programmers have a distinct advantage," says Dr. Elhabiby.

Special Launch Pricing
RoboGarden is available on a subscription basis at the special launch price of $1.99 US for the first month. For more information visit www.robogarden.ca.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
