Instead of sending 5.2 million more teachers, a task even UNESCO regards as nearly impossible to do for developing countries, we at ZyTab thought - what if we could provide these key factors for a child’s success in school and early learning through another way?
Enter the ZyTab.
The ZyTab is a literacy tablet designed to help students learn how to read and experiment with fundamental subjects at home through fun and engaging activities.
Our team formed at the machine learning Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes at Stanford, when our two members, Madhav and Brett, met.
