Meet Fable - The robot designed for education
The Fable robot makes it fun and easy to teach 21st century skills and STEM in your classroom
Build robots in seconds
Fable allows students to materialise their ideas in no time and put them to the test. Fast to build and clean up, leaving more time for teaching.
Solve real problems
The use of Fable can elevate understanding of problem-solving techniques and eliminate the fear of failure for students
Grows with the user
Fable makes robotics approachable and easy to learn. Use it in primary schools (8+ years of age), high schools, vocational schools and universities.
Use Fable from Primary School to University
Build your own robots in secondsCombining function, build and extension modules gives students endless possibilities to create different types of robots.With the Fable educational robot kits, you can teach programming, robotics, and innovation in primary school, secondary schools, and even at university level.
Fable is a modular construction system that students can use to create their own robots
Fable is a modular construction system. Students can create their own robot in minutes. Students can assemble modules together in many different configurations. Build custom robot bodies, use the inbuilt sensors and program the robot’s movement.
Depending on experience level, students can program using visual blocks (Blockly) or a programming language (Python). After one lesson with Fable students can work toward solving real-world problems. Fable is appropriate for primary school (8+), secondary and higher education.
Free & Inspiring Teaching Material
A growing library of lesson plans and activity content.
Shape Robotics support teachers and educators with a wide range of curriculum relevant educational material including a great variety of STEM modeled lesson plans ready for you to teach with Fable robot sets.Each lesson makes coding fun, educational and exciting for your students.
Fable is a modular construction system that students can use to create their own robot in just a few minutes.
Easily build your own robots
The Fable robot system can be used across a range of subjects and classes, allowing students to gain skills they’ll need in the 21st century. The Fable system is composed of three different module types: Function modules, Build modules and Extension modules. Fable is an open-ended system with advanced functionality. Fable encourages students to be both creative and innovative as they build robot prototypes to meet needs in the real world.
Easy to Program
Robots must be programmed in order to do something. It is easy for students to start programming using a simple block-based language. If however, students are ready for or already using Python then the sky is the limit for what an experienced student can do!
The programming interface is divided into different levels depending on the students’ level of competence. This begins with very simple visual programming with Blockly, to more advanced Blockly programming and finally versatile programming with Python. This helps students gradually progress. It is also possible to perform simple data processing on the interface with graphs or to log data to files for later processing e.g. in MS Excel. The interface provides an easy-to-understand introduction to get started.
