Thymio Challenge Activities: a Thymio discovery kit

The Thymio Challenge Activities kit offers a dual approach to learning with:

  • challenge cards designed to teach you basic behaviours, and above all help you take your first steps in basic and advanced visual programming (VPL software provided with the Thymio robot); and
  • activity sheets providing you with all the information you need to transform your Thymio robot, build obstacles and create a playground in which it will excel!

Just the right level of difficulty, ensuring activities are always fun

The Thymio educational robot is designed for teaching children from the age of six the secrets of robotics and programming. It is intended for both children and curious adults, for primary school pupils and retired DIY enthusiasts!

The Thymio Challenge Activities kit is therefore a comprehensive beginner’s programme offering activities of increasing difficulty, allowing you to familiarise yourself with your Thymio mobile robot at your own pace, always with a smile.
