For over a decade Fundalogic Robotics has been developing interactive applications for social robots to be utilized in a variety of settings. The applications include activities ranging from storytelling to motor skills. Fundalogic’s intuitive platform app includes interactive, dynamic behaviors that can be customized and integrated into many environments including schools, hospitals, libraries and places of business to utilize these amazing robotic companions.
Social robots have the ability to act as a bridge for children and adults alike as an aid for professionals which is why Fundalogic Robotics offers full programs and workshops to allow for greater opportunities to interact with the robots. These workshops include but are not limited to STEAM content (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) lessons, storytime with crafts, and drum circles.

Ericka Pratt is currently the educational director at fundalogic robotics. Her primary roles include developing curriculum and assisting with programming. She holds both a Masters in Education and an MBA along with 15+ years of teaching experience in a variety of teaching areas. With a pragmatic approach to education, Ericka believes that learning occurs best with hands-on activities that are engaging and fun, and she develops curriculum with this in mind. After teaching in the public school system for many years, she has decided to homeschool her daughter. The combination of her public education perspective coupled with homeschooling has provided a broad range of experiences to draw from for creating meaningful cross-curricular lessons. Her daughter participates in several homeschool co-ops along with other social activities, so Ericka spends a fair amount of time playing chauffeur like most other parents these days, but she still tries to set aside time for making music and dabbling in photography.
