Silicon Valley-based robotics company Wonder Workshop has named former 360KID founder and CEO Scott Traylor as VP of software.
Formerly called Play-i, Wonder Workshop makes ready-to-play robots that teach coding skills to kids ages six and up. The company’s Dash and Dot bots, for example, teach programming via connected tablet apps.
Traylor will oversee the software and design arm of the business, and will serve as a member of Wonder Workshop’s executive team. He will report to CEO and co-founder Vikas Gupta.
At Boston-based digital development studio 360KID, Traylor oversaw the creation of consumer and classroom products for companies including Hasbro, Pokémon, Sesame Workshop, Scholastic, Pearson, LeapFrog and Reading Rainbow. He has also written about kidtech trends as a contributor to Kidscreen.
