A Computer Science Tool for Educators

 

 

Organizational Leadership is a hot topic across the nation as administrators struggle to accommodate for STEM related programming. All have a myriad of varied needs and resources. Most all educators find themselves at a similar starting point summarized well by a recent report showing that 78% of teachers have not received the training necessary to teach with technology.

Zubi Flyer was designed around free open source tools currently being used in most computer science programs - ScratchJr and Arduino. Our objective was to FUZE skills gaps by providing an integrated technology platform that universally develops real-world skill sets around cutting-edge technology. Our approach to learning is graduated through play and premised on an assumption that the teacher has no previous technical experience.

Out of the box you can play frisbee around 12 fun games. After learning the logic of each game, connect Zubi Flyer to Scratch as a controller for your online interactive story. Zubi Flyer can also be easily connected to Arduino. ANYONE can open code for each Zubi Flyer game and EASILY modify game code. Teachers and students use real code and real skills in preparation for more advanced robotics and loose electronics exploration, all of which are compatible with Zubi Flyer’s open source hardware platform.

We FUZE physical play and digital learning. Admins can level up or down CS programming relative to teacher skills and teachers can do the same for students.

FuzePlay’s hardware platform FUZE’s play by allowing all online experiences to be taken offline and into the real word, thus creating opportunity for global citizenship and peer-to-peer sharing. Our approach is simple, put futuristic technologies into universal toys and teach through play while leveraging free, open source tools that are familiar to educators and commonly used inside the classroom. We are high-tech for the non-tech and make learning tech as easy as 1, 2, 3, Build Hack Play.

Microcontroller Specs 

The Zubi Flyer is the bomb dot com for makers: 5 PWM pins, 12 DIOs as well as hardware serial connections Rx and Tx. Running at 16MHz and 5V. The onboard switch-mode boost regulator is designed to operate on 3 Volts.  Power can be supplied from a 3 Volt CR123A battery or from a USB cable that provides regulated +5 Volts DC to the board. Do not run any power exceeding 5 Volts as the regulator cannot handle step-down voltage.
