WE LOVE LEARNING TOYS AND THANKS TO LEARNING RESOURCES WE WERE ABLE TO LEARN WITH THE TOY FEATURED BELOW
Learning Resources™ STEM Robot Mouse Coding Activity Set
We’ve featured many different STEM toys that we found to be awesome for our kiddos. In case you don’t know what STEM is, STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. These areas are focused on together not only because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success, but also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively.
Coding is fast-growing focus in elementary education and Learning Resources, known for their award-winning hands-on learning toys and games, has created one of the first hands-on introductory coding sets for the age 5+ crowd. Studies show when we use our hands to learn – by writing, by hands-on touch experimentation, etc. – we retain the information much better. With the new Learning Resources™ STEM Robot Mouse Coding Activity Set that’s certainly the case and it’s loads of fun too! This set introduces the concept of step programming and challenges children to create, program and problem solve in a simple, exciting way.
The race is on to build hands-on coding skills! Build your maze, and then use the coding cards to create a step-by-step path for Colby, the Programmable Robot Mouse. Program the sequence of steps, and then watch Colby race to find the cheese!
ABOUT THE SET
The deluxe set includes 30 double-sided coding cards, 10 double-sided activity cards, cheese wedge, and Activity Guide to provide the perfect hands-on introduction to coding concepts.
The coding cards definitely help the little ones to learn to duplicate and follow examples given, we also love that after a few times trying the coding cards the kiddos want to try and create their own coding sequences.
HOW TO PLAY
Create your path with 16 maze grids to create a 20″ x 20″ maze board, 22 maze walls, and 3 tunnels for endless possibilities. Colby lights-up, makes sounds when the cheese is found (and when Jack (sold separately) and Colby meet nose to nose), and features 2 speeds along with colorful buttons to match coding cards for easy programming and sequencing. Add multiple players with Jack, the Programmable Robot Mouse (LER 2841), sold separately.
WHY IT’S FUN
- Introduce children to the fun of coding and puzzle solving with this colorful, programmable mouse with maze! A great way to introduce young children to science, technology, engineering, and math
- Program the mouse with easy push-button controls to follow your created maze and find the cheese
- Mouse lights up and sounds and also features two speeds are perfect for tabletop or floor play
- Part of the STEM line of activity sets that help students experience STEM through hands-on activities and experiments while challenging them to think critically, solve problems effectively, and acquire the skills needed to enter STEM-related fields
- Ideal for ages 5+
