Kindergarteners Learn Cubetto

April 05, 2018

This week and last, our kindergarten students worked on a screenless coding activity with our technology teachers. Cubetto is a small wooden robot that moves around a colorful mat according to how it is coded. The students learned how to program Cubetto using a sequence of colorful “coding blocks” (different colored arrows that each represent a command such as “forward,” “turn right” or “turn left”). In order to program Cubetto, the kindergarteners slide the different color blocks into a board to make Cubetto follow a specific path to get from point A to point B. There was a lot of trial and error and hands-on learning involved to understand how to program Cubetto successfully.
