See how this new toy teaches young kids how to code
As the future is looking to be filled with jobs that require knowledge of how to program code, it’s so exciting to see new toys coming out that may help inspire the next generation of programmers.
This toy teaches young kids how code, and it doesn’t even have a screen or keyboard!
Cubetto is computer programming at it’s simplest, taught through using a physical toy. Inspired by the LOGO turtle software (anyone remember that from school?), the programmers (kids!) lay out a set of simple instructions in an ordered sequence, which the Cubetto robot will follow.
Instead of typing in a computer language to make Cubetto do things, all our kid programmers need to do is to place a set of action blocks on a board in the correct order to solve a problem. Amazing, right?
The Cubetto is suggested for kids 3 years and up, but really it would be the age that your child understands how cause-and-effect works.
I’m all for empowering and inspiring the future generation of coders, as we move into a brave new world of full of technology that needs a lot of programming!
