Meet Fable – designed for education

The Fable robot makes it fun and easy to teach 21st century skills and STEM

Fable is a modular construction set that students can use to create their own robot in just a few minutes. Students can click the different modules together in no end of different ways to build their robot’s body, and give it senses and movement.

Depending on their experience level, the students can program the robot with visual blocks (Blockly) or a text language (Python). Within just one lesson, the students can work with innovation to solve real-world problems. Fable is appropriate for primary (9+), secondary and higher education.

We ordered the trial Fable kit to see how easy it would be to include it into our curriculum. We had been wanting to find a way to start robotics with our Y7 and 8ʼs and Fable appealed to us.
We were thrilled when it arrived and we found it easy to get started. It was really well made and easy to put together. We also loved the blocky editor and found it easy to navigate round. It complimented the other work on blockly we had been doing. We set it up and got a few pupils to try it out.
They got Fable to monitor movement, then wave and smile .The best thing though was the discussion between the pupils. The problem solving and thinking skills was a joy to witness.
We loved it so much we ordered a class set and havenʼt looked back.

With Fable, I saw that pupils could independently even set rather difficult problems for themselves, which they were much more motivated to deal with.
