KUBO Robotics has launched a brand-new innovative coding pack for primary school children. Available from January 2019, “Coding+” builds on KUBO’s existing robotics resource and teaches children aged 4-10 more advanced programming elements and stronger computational thinking skills.
Coding+ comes with a set of 36 additional TagTiles which deliver high-quality, innovative programming challenges. The TagTile pieces fit together like a puzzle in order to create a sequence of code. The robot is then placed on top of the tiles and follows a set of instructions helping pupils to understand more advanced levels of programming related to routes, functions, subroutines and loops.
In addition to KUBO’s previous functions, Coding+ enables educators to cover time, distance, speed and directions, encouraging pupils to undertake more challenging and sophisticated programming tasks.
“At a time when most children will end up working in jobs that don’t even exist yet, now more than ever we should be teaching them computational thinking and coding from an early age in order to equip them the right skills for the future.
“At KUBO we are dedicated to helping educators teach invaluable coding skills in a simple and engaging way that appeals to pupils. We are continuously developing our curriculum content and resources to ensure that we are providing solutions that demonstrate coding in a way that is not only accessible but gives learning STEM subjects a real purpose.”
KUBO is designed to make it easy for teachers to introduce computer science and coding into their daily teaching activities, promoting cross-curricular collaboration and hands-on play.
