coding and robotics
Introduce a whole generation of children to coding and robotics with our selection of STEM coding products. We offer several gateway coding activities that are great for beginners and younger children. Products like our Excellerations® Coding with Shapes and Colors use plastic shape cards to teach children to recreate designs and patterns with shapes. It’s a great introductory logic activity for kids, as it promotes scientific reasoning, exploration, and critical thinking. For further learning, our Bug Out™ Coding Activity explains the basic concept of a path in computer programming through a fun, insect-filled game. Magnetic activity boards and cards create a variety of scenarios that children must create paths to navigate around. Whether used as a solo learning tool or a group activity, it’s an exciting game that teaches programming without the use of a computer.
From Coding to STEM Robotics
Other products that teach coding and robotics for kids use games and hands-on materials that help children input commands into robots and navigate obstacle courses. Your students can put their minds together to help robot mice navigate a maze or use circuit-building toys to solve puzzles, all while learning about how switches and circuits work. These STEM coding and robotics activities are terrific for inspiring future engineers, as well as teaching students about logic, sequencing, and other skills that will serve them well later in life.
Reinforce lessons about coding with banners and journals that can be used to remind students of basic principles, vocabulary, and other concepts. STEM challenge flip charts can offer further education and classroom activities that students can explore together. Looking to reward students for a job well done? We also offer homework passes and certificates that can commend children for completing a task or challenge.
