Cubetto is one of only a handful of STEM-learning toys that can be used by sighted and non-sighted children alike. This means that not only can visually-impaired children learn and play with Cubetto, they can also do so in the same learning environment as sighted children.
Do I need to know coding to use Cubetto?
Nope – the Cubetto Playset has been designed to be equally accessible to both those who can code and those who can’t! Our lesson plans explain all the concepts to you, and suggest our favourite ways to explain them to your pupils. Get in touch!
Why should 3-year-olds learn about coding?
We believe that coding is the new literacy, and should therefore be prioritised from an early age. We think that children should be introduced to coding when they start learning how to read and write, and our smart-toys begin with the ABCs. It’s important children this young are exposed to basic principles of programming, even if they don’t necessarily learn how to code. Being introduced to the environment of programming, and the language of ‘algorithms’, ‘debugging’ and ‘functions’ helps give them the foundations necessary to excel.
Can I use more than one Cubetto at once?
Yes! You can have many Cubettos in the same room. Cubetto simply responds to the nearest Board.
Do you accept POs?
Absolutely! Simply get in touch via our contact form and a member of our Education team will be on-hand to assist you with your order.
