CoFounder and CEO

Kagan Inan is a mechatronics engineer with experience in CB Design / Embedded Software Development (C/C++) / Mobile App Development (Cross-Platform).

Kagan's work on robotics has received extensive media attention in recent years. Coming from a family of teachers, his true ambition lies in developing innovative and affordable educational technologies for children of all socioeconomic backgrounds.

He reckons that LabStar™ has the potential to become a true disruptive educational technology that would challenge the status quo.

BettShow 2020

BettShow2020 was a huge success for the project in many ways. Dr Defne Yabaş accompanied Kagan during our second year at the largest edtech fair in the world. Different from last year, we were now ready to initiate B2B agreements: Don't be surprised if LabStar happens to show herself in Iceland, Scotland, or Thailand. More to come in the very near future.

In Class Pics

Here are some of the teacher-posted pictures on the Internet. We would love to see more photos of teachers and students in action. Post it on Instagram with #LabStar and we will add them here.
