Build a penguin, fire truck, or even a peanut butter and jelly sandwich while learning coding basics. Children build and program creations to move in various directions, illuminate an LED, or play sounds through 30 lessons. Fun, friendly designs like Sammy the sandwich are non-intimidating and inviting while strengthening problem-solving skills.
This standalone system does not require a computer, tablet, or smartphone to program the robots. Instead, children lay down coding cards in a particular order. The robot uses an OID scanner to read them as it drives over the cards. Lessons cover the six key areas of coding including sequencing, loops, events, conditionals, functions, and variables.
Pack includes 417 pieces and 64-page, full-color manual with 30 lessons. Aligns with CSTA and ITSE standards for computer science education. Batteries not included. Ages 4 to 8.
