We don't care how. We just want to help teachers get kids coding. And what better time of the year to do so? We trust that everyone has been having a great CS Ed Week, but if you want to try some new things towards the end of it or carry it over into next week or even next year, we've got some suggestions for how you can do it. We're just full of suggestions for educators -- all year long. 


The hour is here. We're right in the thick of the annual Computer Science Education Week and so many great Hour of Code activities have already taken place. Coding is a vital skill for today's students to learn, but there's no best way to teach them. In fact, there are a number of innovative ways they can learn and a number of cool technologies they can use at ANY AGE!


Cubetto and cue 


Don't wait until kids are older to introduce them to coding. Cubetto breaks it down into the simplest science, using blocks of different shapes and colors to empower toddlers to program a wooden robot! And, using cue from Wonder Workshop, kids can chat, code, and create a custom robot that’s entirely their own. It's the perfect way to combine coding and educational fun as kids choose their avatars and collaborate in real time!



Edison Robot and Let's Start Coding


Edison has something for students of all ages. Attach some LEGO's to its surface, build it up, and have kids test their engineering skills! Or, teach programming in six unique ways, all leading up to coding it over the Web! You can also hoose the Base or Ultimate Kit from Let's Start Coding and get older students prepared to write the code themselves! These kits help display the potential of coding using simple but powerful components to create and run programs instantly!


Ozobot Evo and littleBits Code Kit 


CS Ed Week is all about expanding computer science for all. That's the same as the Ozobot Evo - a compact way to transform simple coding into a fully social experience that shakes up learning and preps kids for the future! Or, help students cement their invention and creativity skills by outlining simple circuit construction using the littleBits Code Kit. Oh, and then they create the code to control them! Unlock top-level coding with single packs or classroom sizes!


You'll find plenty more options on our store as well. Whether you need coding tools for early education, elementary, middle, or high school, we've got you covered with SPECIAL educator pricing on the best kits and brands, like Sphero, Raspberry Pi, Kano, mBot, and more! If you have any questions or would like to place an order, feel free to give us a call at 1 (877) 252-0001, email sales@eduporium.com, or just click below! Enjoy CS Ed Week!
