South African startup SeeBox, which has developed an educational console teaching children about electronics by means of gameplay and experimentation, has shipped its first orders.
The console engages children with short animated videos, and the allows them to put knowledge into practice with experiments on real playboards and game play. The SeeBox keeps track of a learner’s progress as they go.
The first SeeBoxes have now been delivered to their owners, with Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE)-listed investment holding company Adcorp the first company to issue a purchase order, through its subsidiary PMI.
The startup was last year named the winner in the educational category at the Africa Entrepreneurship Awards, which SeeBox founder Johann Kok told Disrupt Africa had given the startup enough runway to go into commercialisation without requiring further investment.
