Root is a robot designed by researchers at Harvard University with the intention as acting as a coding instructor for youth demographics. The robot works in conjunction with an app uploaded onto a tablet to help children learn the basics of HTML while programming the functions and commands of Root.

Coding is quickly becoming a universal language in its own right, meaning that more and more consumers are learning how to understand, use and apply the system. Root educates children from a young age on the fundamentals of coding, allowing children to use commands to program Root's robotic functions via a tablet. The app challenges kids with age-appropriate problem solving and concepts to help set a foundation for learning the fundamentals of coding from an early age.
