Cost: free for Supporting/$25 Geographic*
Ages: 3+

Description: Cubetto is the friendly wooden robot that will teach your child the basics of computer programming through adventure and hands on play. Montessori approved, LOGO Turtle inspired.  Cubetto uses a coding language you can touch and manipulate like LEGO®, where each block is an action. Combine forward/left/right/function/back blocks to create programs and take Cubetto where you want it to go.

Cubetto introduces a host of programming concepts, including ‘algorithms’, ‘the queue’, ‘debugging’, and ‘recursions’. By removing unfamiliar distractions such as screens and keyboards this allows children as young as three to write and execute their first programs, using a tangible, block-based coding language.
