Coding Learning Box for Kids

One of the most frequently asked questions on our platform is "Where to buy Educational Toys for my child?"  Kids love to play and have fun, and if they can learn something useful at the same time that would be a bonus for the parents. This is even more so now during this pandemic period when kids are stuck at home. 

EDU:BIT Project Kit for Children to Code • Play • Learn
Introducing the play-and-learn EDU:BIT Project Kit




Today, we're going to talk about one such educational toy or learning box. It is the EDU:BIT Project Kit for children aged 7 and up. The EDU:BIT Project Kit is an all-in-one complete kit for kids to learn coding and electronics as they play in a fun and engaging way. The projects also help the children develop creativity and foster problem-solving thinking skills.

With coding being an essential skill in education these days, as basic and important as your 123s and ABCs, it is good for kids to get a head start and practice these skills from a young age. Coding is now included in many school curriculums all over the world including Singapore and Japan. In Malaysia, coding is introduced in the new KSSR syllabus under the subject Design and Technology for Y4, Y5 and Y6 students.. Coding need not be a dry, boring or difficult subject to grasp for kids. It can be fun and creative play too. Children can learn coding skills as they play with this educational learning box.


What is included in the EDU:BIT Project Kit?




The graphics below show what is included in this Educational Learning Box. The most important component in this box is the EDU:BIT board which is the heart of it all. (See item 1 in the graphics)

The EDU:BIT board comes with the BBC micro:bit board. The micro:bit was designed by BBC to get kids actively involved in coding and making projects.

Beginners can easily learn to code using Microsoft's Makecode with simple drop and drag modules while more advanced users switch to Python or Javascript to programme.

Since this learning tool is specially designed for young kids and beginners, a step-by-step colourful guide is included on how to complete up to 10 projects using the Microsoft Makecode platform to code. By following the guidebook, kids can turn early childhood games like rock, paper, scissors or snakes and ladders into fun digital projects. Cute cutouts are included for this purpose.




 


Younger kids may need supervision but older kids can self-learn on their own.
