Marbotic

Maker - Marie Mérouze

Marbotic
Underrepresented Entrepreneur

Maker Story

Classically Connected

You might have heard that some studies show kids’ cognitive learning benefits from physical playing. This research led Marie Mérouze to create Marbotic, a smart combination of an educational app and toy.

Marie’s young son, like many kids, loves playing on a tablet. To add a real-world, tactile element to screen time, Marbotic uses wooden letters and numbers that look like traditional toys. But these pieces are more than classic—they’re connected.

The letters and numbers act like a stamp on the screen, their movements make things happen in the digital world. This approach doesn’t just promote learning. It also delights kids who have always been told not to put their toys on the iPad.

Inspired by the Montessori method of self-directed play, Marbotic lets kids learn basic math and language skills at their own speed. A digital world full of quirky characters keeps them engaged and entertained—joining little hands and minds together in a fun, effective way.
