THAMES & KOSMOS - Kids First Coding & Robotics Engineering Science Building Kit (2 pack) (567012)

Kids First Coding & Robotics Kit | Robot Engineer Kit | STEM | 32 Page Full-Color Illustrated Storybook - No App Needed

Kids First Coding & Robotics | No App Needed | Grades K-2 | Intro To Sequences, Loops, Functions, Conditions, Events, Algorithms, Variables | Parents' Choice Gold Award Winner | by Thames & Kosmos

Meet Sammy. This cute little peanut butter and jelly sandwich is actually a robot that teaches coding principles and skills to children in grades K-2. You donAAATMt need a tablet, smartphone, or computer to program this robot; programs are created by simply laying down a sequence of physical code cards. As the robot drives over the code cards, an OID optical scanner on the bottom of the robot reads the code cards one by one and loads the program. Next, place the robot on a grid made of map cards, and the robot runs the program. You can program the robot to move in different directions, activate its output gear, light up its LED, play sounds, and respond to different function cards. The integrated output gear makes it possible to build simple robotic creations with arms or other moving parts that respond according to the programAAATMs instructions. This robot kit also teaches physical engineering and problem solving skills through a series of building and coding lessons. The 30 lessons are aligned with standards for computer science education developed by the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) and the International Society for Technology (ISTE) Education, as well as courses from Code.org. The lessons progress in complexity through the illustrated manual, allowing the kit to be appropriate for a child as young as four years with help from an adult and as old as eight years. The lessons cover these six key areas in coding: sequencing, loops, events, conditionals, functions, and variables. In addition to Sammy, there are five other stories, each with a series of model-building and coding challenges and lessons related to it: a mouse moves through a maze to find cheese; a penguin wanders around a zoo; a soccer player moves a ball into the goal; a fire truck puts out a fire; and a factory robot performs tasks in a factory scene. A full-color illustrated manual guides users through the coding lessons and the assembly of the different models.

Thames & Kosmos Kids First Robot Engineer Kit and Storybook

Read the funny story of two inquisitive kids, Ty and Karlie, and build simple, non-motorized models of the robots they construct and fix during their adventure to an automated candy factory. During this zany outing, Ty and Karlie build various robots to perform tasks and solve problems in the factory. The robots have moving parts, wheels, and gears, so kids can learn firsthand about simple machines and gear trains. As you follow the story, you can build models of the ten robots featured in the story. Large, colorful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together. In the story, the kids build robots with arms that rotate, turn, and spin. They fix a robotic arm and other specialized robots that complete specific tasks inside the factory. They construct a robotic drone that flies through the factory to coat the candies in sprinkles, wheeled robots that zoom across the factory floor, a taffy-pulling robot, and a funny gum-kneading robot. From each humorous segment of their silly adventure, the kids learn something new about robots and machines. This 53-piece science kit combined with the beautifully illustrated storybook provides an engaging way to teach simple engineering concepts to preschool-age kids. Start laying the groundwork for strong STEM related skills and comprehension. This kit helps develop fine motor skills, science and math skills, visual-spatial skills, and reasoning and concept development skills.
