It's becoming a more imperative notion for children to learn to code at an early age, so the 'Root' is a new robot that looks to make the experience more fun and interactive. Developed by a team of researchers at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University, the 'Root' works by enabling users to learn code by programming the robot in various ways.

The 'Root' robot is not yet available commercially, but interested parties can contact the developers in order to secure one for the cost of $199. The 'Root' robot features a programming environment that would allow users of all proficiency levels to get involved and have some fun. The new robot identifies how brands and educators are adapting to be more attune to the learning styles of young children.
