Most Helpful Reviews

mBot Series STEAM Robots

Andrea Canesi, Teacher: mBot 1.0: ideal to teach coding, but also electronics and physics. It's higly expandable, you can create your sensor and use it within the robot. It's based on Arduino, it's easy to find a lot of expansions that can be built by the students. mBot Ranger: It can be used in an open environment, is robust and can be expanded as mBot 1.0. mBot 2.0: less expandable, but more precise due to the change of motors. It has a lot of sensors on board, can be connected to a wifi network and can send to and receive data from other robots or the network

KUBO Coding

Soraya Beech, STEM team leader and class teacher: It is engaging for the children. There are lots of activities and differentiated extras that mean it can be used by different year groups and abilities.
Theresa, Visiting Lecturer: If a colleague would look for a simple, straight forward way of introducing coding to young children I would definately recommend KUBO. I also like that there is a digital solution but it can also be used completly without any devices, hands-on and coding with tiles. So kids can experience coding without extra screen time.
Laura Hird, Teacher: It is a fantastic piece of kit, that promotes problem solving and collaboration across all year groups.

KUBO Coding

Teachers need no previous experience of coding and there is no need for computers or software installation. This is a table top, out-of-the-box, screen-free solution that can be up and running in minutes. There are short video tutorials online, introducing the basic KUBO coding principles of the puzzle-like TagTiles(R). There are also simple quick start guides that are printable, and full lesson plans at www.kubo.education. The materials introduce programming routes, functions, subroutines and loops and challenges range from very simple to advanced, for students across KS1 and KS2.

KUBO Coding

We estimate that teachers new to coding and KUBO can be up and running within 40 minutes. They can work their way through the online video tutorials and download a quick start guide pdf, which is enough to get started. For more detailed information and classroom tips, they should review the online lesson plans. Called "The Coding License", these include comprehensive Teachers Guides, with extension activities and assessment tasks. They also identify the Computer Science curriculum targets covered by lessons.
