Cubelets Discovery Set
This educational starter kit contains everything your child needs to take the first exciting steps towards learning the basics of robotics while, at the same time, managing to not dampen that enthusiasm by being overly complicated. It comes with five cubes and a Bluetooth “hat” which easily connect together to create unlimited combinations. Parents told us how amazed they were watching their children quickly grasp the basic concept and start combining cubes from each category (Sense, Think and Act), and then manipulate the pieces through the synced app. One of the best features are the two “brick” connectors which are compatible with Legos. Kids can use their imagination to create literally anything they want with their Legos and then couple it with their robot to make it come to life. The instruction booklet is well thought-out, easy to follow and explains what each piece does really well. It then walks your child through building basic robots so they can see the possibilities. Once a child understands the concepts and has worked on building their own robots, the booklet contains challenges for them. Ex: can you make a robot that will stop at the edge of a table? This challenges the child to think about how to use and position their “sense” cube in order to make their robot do the desired action. Very heady stuff that perfectly fit where our kids are today when it comes to the new world of learning.
