<strong>School Robotic Coding Software Launched in SA – Supported by Amazon</strong> 1

Sangari Education has launched CoderZ, the acclaimed STEM robotic learning software for pupils from six years and older and used by Amazon for its Future Engineer competition that attracts hundreds of thousands of students worldwide. 

CoderZ is an online learning environment similar to gaming software that can be accessed from anywhere in the world for programming real and virtual robots. “The platform enables students to acquire computational thinking, problem solving and creativity skills, together with coding and STEM learning, all via a flexible and scalable virtual robotic coding  solution,” said Bez Sangari, MD of Sangari Education. 

“CoderZ leverages technology to maximise the four Cs of education: Critical thinking, Collaboration, Creativity and Communication. It is built on these principles to strengthen STEM learning for preparing today’s pupils for tomorrow’s careers. The role of STEM and computer science will be pivotal for students when the future job market.”

Mr Sangari believes that STEM and Computer Science education are essential for the future and should be universally available to all students. “CoderZ as a platform makes it easy for all students to learn and for educators to teach, without prior coding experience, using robots to bring the subject matter to life and a state-of-the-art training solutions for Industry 4.0. By augmenting skills training, introducing new areas of study specific to Industry 4.0 and integrating these into comprehensive programmes, children of six years upwards to high school can be introduced to advanced industry 4.0 training.”

Mr Sangari said the installation of CoderZ is simple. No expensive equipment is needed and learning is self-paced. Tools, guides and progress tracking are provided for teachers and parents. “The majority of educators interviewed said they would recommend CoderZ for teaching computer science and STEM the gamified way.”

Sangari Education plans to implement the Amazon CoderZ Competition in South Africa in which students from all over the world participate.

CoderZ was developed by Intelitek. Since 1982, Intelitek has been a pioneer in robotic training systems for industrial robotics. Now, also in partnership with Yaskawa MotoMan Robotics, Intelitek continues to deliver market-leading solutions for schools to prepare graduates for careers in industry, manufacturing and Industry 4.0 Smart Factories. Intelitek combines skill-based training and curriculum, a comprehensive range of competencies, with hands-on workshops that prepare students for jobs in modern industry.

Industry 4.0 is the next iteration in the development of modern industry. Starting with the introduction of the Steam engine in the late 1800’s, to the production line and the computer, industry has progressed and changed society. Industry 4.0 is a game changer for manufacturing. Industry 4.0 takes advantage of the latest advances in technology including advanced internet communications capabilities, data science and big data, Internet of things, additive manufacturing and automation/integration. Industry upgrading to Industry 4.0 can benefit from on these new capabilities changing the face of manufacturing and creating economic opportunity.
