Grades PreK-4. Matatalab Coding Set is a block-based, tangible programming tool that allows students to move a robot through an environment by way of a Bluetooth®-enabled command tower and board. Perfect for introducing coding and robotics in early STEM/STEAM programs, the screenless, words-free robot allows students to learn and play in tactile ways without the need of a table screen or an app. Students are introduced to basic coding concepts such as sequencing, conditionals, and debugging while feeling like they are simply playing a maze game adventure.
- Chunky, easy-to-grip coding blocks feature intuitive graphical symbols on them that make it easy for students to understand and grasp their meaning, as well as learn about and use representational data
- Students place coding blocks on the control board to tell the robot how to move through an environment on a map
- Command tower reads the code of the blocks through image recognition
- Command tower then sends the code to the robot through a Bluetooth® connection (16 in. to 19 in. range)
Through hands-on play with the Matatalab Coding Set, students also develop problem-solving skills, critical thinking skills, creativity, and collaboration skills. Coding set includes robot car, command tower, control board, 37 coding blocks, 8 obstacles, 3 flags, 3 challenge booklets, and nature map.
