Much like its older brother, Lego Mindstorms, Lego WeDo kits offer young engineers the chance to design and program creations all by themselves. WeDo kits take the fun and technology of Mindstorms kits and make it simpler for novice coders and builders. WeDo software is easy to learn and a blast to use. At the same time, using WeDo can easily be integrated into STEM instruction. Accessible text and clear photographs help readers make sense of a potentially difficult topic. Eye-catching sidebars and a graphic organizer round out this exciting learning experience.

Cubelets Modular Robotics Kit

Cubelets are magnetic blocks for children age 4+ that can be snapped together to make an endless variety of robots with no programming and no wires. Each Cubelet has a tiny computer inside of it and is a robot in its own right. When you put Cubelets together, you're actually making a robot out of several smaller robots. Each Cubelet communicates with its neighbors so you know that if two blocks are next to each other, they're talking. Sense Cubelets act like our eyes and ears. Action Cubelets act as outputs. They do things like make noise, spin, drive or shine a light.

Understanding computing and programming is a valuable skill to develop at a young age. According to the National Curriculum for computing, a “high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
