Various authors. Helsinki, Finland. San Francisco, USA - April 7th, 2021 - RobotLAB Inc., the leader of Educational Robotics in the American market, and Curious Technologies Ltd., the fast-growing Edtech innovator of the Nordics, known for their educational expertise, announces today their partnership that focuses on the distribution of Elias Robot worldwide.
The direct connection between the two companies in terms of innovative approaches to educational robots made it possible for RobotLAB and Elias Robot to collaborate by contributing to the development of innovative solutions for the Edtech market.
“Partnering with Elias Robot is exciting because it brings the learning experience to another level of engagement for students” commented Cedric Vaudel, Sales Vice President of RobotLAB. “For more than a decade, we’ve developed innovative methodologies of teaching using robots that can bring many advantages: they’re fun, tireless, and non-judgmental. Now, by adding Elias to our portfolio, our program covers an even broader range of applications that teachers can use to teach foreign languages”.
Edtech is a growing market where a diverse range of solutions for teachers and students are being developed around the world.
