The magic Ozobot world, colors of programming languages are encapsulated in a small candy-like robot called Ozobot. With the desire to bring to children the natural, intimate and passionate programming lessons, the program with the walking “candies” are officially licensed by OCG from Castalia – a company specialized in education in Japan – to teach in Vietnam.
Ozobot is not only walking “candies”
By reading Ozocode color codes using optical sensors to move, Ozobot gives children many interesting experiences as well as the ability to think logically through creative illustrations. At a higher level, children can program to control Ozobot at will through block programming, drag-and-drop commands on tablets with the help of App Ozoblockly. When using the Ozoblockly App on a tablet for programming, children can immediately observe their creative results: in a split second, Ozobot has finished loading the program through light communication between the robot and the iPad without using cable or Bluetooth.
Small and beautiful, Ozobots but extremely intelligent are indispensable friends for kids
Learning the basic principles of the programming language and practicing with tiny robots possessing many unique features, it helps to arouse the passion for creativity and thinking development in children. Not only that, the programming lessons with Ozobot can also help children practice teamwork skills, problem solving and creative initiative.
Ozobot brings a difference in learning to code
Ozobot is a robot that is researched and developed for teaching and learning programming, and has been successfully deployed in countries such as the US, Singapore or Japan. In Vietnam, although the programming program with Ozobot was recently introduced and taught by OCG Company in a number of primary schools in Hanoi in a short time, it was quickly welcomed by children with full of inspiration.
Unlike programming programs that are popular in Vietnam, programming with Ozobot of OCG Company gives children a new experience: Throughout the course, children are constantly applying their learned knowledge to try, experiment, verify and modify ideas with their tiny robot friend. Boring commands have become alive in front of a child’s eyes.

Ozobot course consists of 24 sessions divided into 2 main parts:
*Part I: Simple level Ozobot control programming using Ozocode color code. With over 25 color codes to adjust Ozobot’s speed, direction and behavior.
*Part II: Programming the Ozobot control on a higher level using a tablet. At this level, children can program to ask Robot to perform more complex and sophisticated tasks at the same time.
With a careful and well-thought-out investment – purchasing the copyrights of programming lessons from Castalia Company – specialized in Japanese education, OCG hopes to bring exciting and passionate programming lessons for children. And from that, it helps children get acquainted, understand and nurture their passion for Programming and Computer Science in the era of Industrial Revolution 4.0.
