Coding is one specialty that will for sure be in demand in the coming days. While this skill generally requires PCs or rather screens in general, there is a new way of handling things. Using Cubetto play kit, it is now possible to teach children aged between three and seven how to code without involving screens.
The kit has been designed in a way to help unlock the creativity of children. It comes with a wooden robot, instruction blocks as well as a programming board. The instruction blocks are of four different colors where each of them represents a unique programming command. Red means moving forward, blue means turning left, green is the function key while yellow means turning right.
How to program using Cubetto
The newly launched Cubetto allows kids to place instruction blocks on the programming board in a given order that determines how the robot moves. The function key helps in building longer patterns.
This is an ingenious way of teaching children how to code with reduced time for screens as it gives them a physical format of programming that is easy for them to digest and understand. It is also a perfect way of letting young ones know that the best skills are mastered gradually. With Cubetto, children can now be part of technology creators and not just consumers.
A new language for children
According to market experts, introducing children to the programming environment, algorithms, debugging as well as functions at a tender age adequately prepares them for the tough digital age that we currently live in.
With the general understanding that children enjoy challenges that involve wooden puzzles and jigsaws, there is no doubt that Cubetto is aiming for the best in the industry. There is even a series of mats that have been designed to present children with different imaginary landscapes for playing. It is basically any child would easily understand, regardless of the language they speak. Cubetto can even be played by visually impaired children thanks to the more inclusive nature of its design.
Cubetto is designed by Primo Toys and it just launched today, so grab a copy for your child and help them become the super-programmers the future needs.
