What’s the best way to engage kids in STEM learning?
Simple, cool, meaningful, (and most importantly) interesting and fun activities!
That’s why we created TacoBot, an easy-to-program robot that can play fun and stimulating games.
TacoBot plays over 30 different games, which ensures endless interest in STEM learning. All gameplay was developed based on a unique and simple interaction: stacking. This guarantees kids an obstaclefree journey to play TacoBot, even if they’re just preschoolers.
Why a robot？ A humanoid robot is simply much cooooooler than a toy vehicle!
How to get kids started?
TacoBot supports 30+ games! Younger kids can start interacting with TacoBot by directly exploring the functions of its different sensor Hats. Their various stacking combinations become a multitude of “screen-off” games. Older kids can control and program TacoBot through “screen-on” games via the TacoBot App, which allows access to more advanced learning and joy of accomplishment.
• Screen-off: Explore the functions of different sensor Hats. Joining and stacking different TacoBot components create differentiated, functional robots. Younger kids can interact directly with TacoBot, promoting their logical thinking skills and interest in STEM. It’s never too early to start learning!
Play with friends: It’s OK to play TacoBot alone, but playing with friends is even more fun!
• Screen-on: Play games with TacoBot through its app! TacoBot can be programmed, remote controlled and turned into a Bluetooth speaker that broadcasts music and stories. Older and more advanced kids will find more fun and insights exploring its simple graphical programming interface.
FUN comes first, but it's way more than a toyTacoBot is the best educational toy available for kids ages 4+ to learn STEM skills and cultivate critical thinking. Besides exploring and playing with its various sensor Hats, button and graphical programming further promote creativity and logical thinking skills in kids. We’ve even turned the step-by-step tutorials into lots of fun games available from our app and handbook.
The technology behind the simplicity
It took tremendous inspiration and work to create a robot that’s so simple and yet so interesting and sophisticated. Behind its cute looks, TacoBot is a product of refined design and fine modern technology.
TacoBot supports IOS, Android and Windows. If you want to control TacoBot through windows PC, we suggest you buy a Robospace USB adapter.
Safety of the kids
As a digital product for the kids, safety is always in the first place. We care about the safety of the children as much as you do.
* Circuit protection
* Shape without sharp edges and corners
* Children-friendly material
* Swallowing preventing
TacoBot has got everything that you can think about.

Why designed TacoBot
Through our intense research with children we’ve found that preschoolers have a deep passion for technology and creativity. But their developing hand-eye coordination skills make it difficult for them to play with most technology-based toys, leading to frustration and abandonment. So we decided to develop a product that would allow children to freely, confidently and enjoyably interact with an easy to use technological-toy.
Our teamWith many mature products in this field, RoboSpace is a company that specializes in developing children’s STEM education products. Zhuang and Liu are product designers who have studied in Germany and China. They also teach in community maker schools.
What we've done before
TacoBot team has more than 3 years of experience in STEM education and STEM education products. We have created several STEM products with the help of crowdfunding. Our products have won the third prize in China-US Young Maker Competition and were given to Vice Premier Liu Yandong and former US Secretary of State John Kerry as a national gift.

Risks and challenges
It took one year from the design to the prototype of our new product — TacoBot. We have finished software and hardware research and development process. We are now opening mold for TacoBot and making preparations for pilot production.
We have more than 3 years of experience in STEM product development and crowdfunding projects. Although we occasionally encounter some unknown problems in the process of hardware projects, we are confident and capable of overcoming challenges and minimizing risks.
