Singapore, December 1, 2021 – UBTECH Robotics, leading AI and humanoid robotic company in China, appoints Edupod Pte Ltd, Singapore’s market leader in design, supply and distribution of children’s furniture and learning resources as distributor for Singapore.

STEM education has been a focal part of Singapore’s curriculum. As technology advances, robots are commonly being used in classrooms as teaching assistants in understanding mathematics and coding. The UBTECH-Edupod partnership brings together technology and educational expertise closer to educators and parents, amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As we embrace the shift from a full school day to home-based learning or blended learning, we see a need for children to have access to interactive learning resources. The use of robotics, which includes the basic understanding of coding, acts as a foundation for problem-based learning, and critical-thinking skills in giving a headstart in STEM education”, says Mr. Zak Lo, CEO of Edupod Pte Ltd. “I’m thrilled to give children access to coding with UBTECH’s JimuGo series!”

Mr. Ray Ong, Director of UBTECH Robotics, shared “Robotics is rapidly gaining traction in recent years, and soon to be an integral part of the school's curriculum. Apart from the social development of children derived from these exercises, it helps them to focus, improves their problem-solving and logical thinking, when building and constructing the robot. We are proud to align ourselves with an established market leader in children’s learning resources”.

JimuGo Series, featuring Mocool and Fire Blazer are designed for children to begin exploring programming, generating interest in STEM learning. Each set comes with building parts, and a guiding all-in-one app to build, control and code. The use of 3D animated instructions is included to keep children constantly engaged, making the building process easy to understand for children! Within the JimuGo APP, children will get access to story-based tutorial games as they progress through the levels that teach different coding components.
