Cubetto: the programmable mobile robot for the youngest
Who said coding and programming weren’t suitable for nursery children? With Cubetto, children aged 3-6 can learn the basics of robotics without any effort.
This nursery school robot is fitted with 2 wheels enabling it to move on a map. The interface board communicates with the robot via Bluetooth: children have to place the adequate blocks on this board to tell Cubetto where to go. Some “Function” blocks make it possible to create specific sequences.
What is Cubetto made of?
- A mobile robot which will remind you of the construction blocks from your childhood, wearing a friendly smiling face;
- A programming board also made of wood, that children aged 3 and up can easily manipulate;
- A set of blocks indicating different directions and functions that the child has to place on the programming board;
- A map divided into tiles that your educational robot will explore;
- An initiation guide to the Montessori Cubetto robot;
- An activity guide to get your child or pupils started on their first adventure.
Teach programming the fun and collaborative way with Cubetto by Primo Toys
Cubetto can be used in a classroom or at home. Children can get to grips with the robot in a matter of minutes thanks to a colourful, illustrated user guide specifically designed for them.
Basically, children have to tackle the various challenges offered in the guide and on line. Doing so, they will come to understand the principles of algorithms, debugging, recursions or queues. Like with all Montessori activities, Cubetto is geared towards experimentation, amusement and collaboration: the older children can help the youngest, or you can divide the class into teams to develop collaborative projects.
