Walking, dancing and kicking robot
Scratch 3.0 +micro:bit+ the very cute Marty Robot!
Add extension: Marty the Robot (other products such as Micro:bit, Lego also runs on Scratch 3, which is available on iPad , all devices and computers).
Marty is a real robot for the price of a smart toy. This Marty comes as a kit, so you'll get several hours of fun out of building Marty, and then countless hours playing and coding with your new programmable walking robot companion.
Marty is Wi-fi enabled and with nine individually controllable motors. You can use our app to remote control Marty, and add a bunch of sensors to react to the environment — Marty can walk, turn, dance, even kick a football!
Marty is supported by fun and engaging online tutorials and a fast-growing and inquisitive community. Every Marty the Robot comes with a 2 year warranty, and we're always here to support and help.
Featured on the BBC Live Lessons, Sky News and leading tech websites such as The Verge and Simplebotics “…astonishingly special” and Digital Trends “…takes things to the next level, Marty the Robot is highly acclaimed.
It’s the perfect creative gift, which your kids (and you!) will love and learn from
Learners will be introduced to the BBC Micro:Bit in this lesson pack as a device that we can program for use alongside Marty the Robot. This pack has a heavy focus on project based learning where students will build and develop a new project or game focusing on different features and functionalities of either Marty or the Micro:Bit. Using the Scratch 3 interface, students will see how different devices can interact and communicate with each other.

Marty has been updated and polished for his appearance as one of the Scratch extensions whilst our lesson plans have been updated to be Scratch 3 compatible. At the moment, you can't access our extension on the normal Scratch website but we have a special link available so that you can still get the advantages of Scratch 3 with Marty!
