This best-selling Cubelets® collection was designed to support all students on their journey through robotics and computational thinking, regardless of their age or skill-level.

This pack was designed for four student groups. Each group can use the Bluetooth® Hat to facilitate programming challenges with Cubelets Blockly, remote control robot races, and access the Personality Swap™ feature to change Cubelets’ behaviour.

The free companion app is compatible with iOS, Android, and FireOS. This pack also comes with Brick Adapters, a 5-port charger, micro-USB charging cables, and a new, easy-to-organize storage tub.

1 – Investigating Cubelets

Outline

  • Watch TEDx Talk about Emergence (9:24) or read article about Emergence
  • Introduce Cubelets
  • Students investigate SENSE and ACT Cubelets
  • Students investigate THINK Cubelets

Objectives

  • Students will investigate and be able to explain the role of each individual Cubelet.

Assessment

  • Students can explain the role of each individual Cubelet
  • Students are beginning to hypothesize about how each Cubelet could be useful within a larger system


2 – Investigating Two SENSES

Outline

  • Review Cubelets Vocabulary and Group Norms
  • Students investigate Cubelets constructions using two SENSE Cubelets
  • Students discuss findings from the investigation

Objectives

  • Students investigate how SENSE Cubelets work together (and how they don’t).

Assessment

  • Students can collaborate to discover at least two “rules” governing how SENSE Cubelets do and don’t work together


3 – Steering Robots

Outline

  • How do Tracked Vehicles turn?
  • Students design steering robot constructions
  • Students share and compare designs

Objectives

  • Students will design multiple steering robot constructions.

Assessment

  • Students using collaborative language
  • Students comparing robot behaviour to tracked vehicles
  • Students revising and simplifying their robot construction


4 – Cubelets Challenges

Outline

  • Students rotate through stations with unique combinations of Cubelets attempting to design for one common challenge
  • Students share their responses to the challenge

Objectives

  • Students will use critical thinking skills to build a specific robot based on a description.

Assessment

  • Students understand the description of a robot
  • Students stay on task
  • Students collaborate with peers


5 – Paper Coding

Outline

  • Students investigate Cubelets robot construction
  • Students investigate using paper plates/cardstock to make a robot walk in a straight line

Objectives

  • Students will use spatial reasoning and computational thinking skills to use paper as a programming tool for a robot construction.

Assessment

  • Students can explain how their paper coding works, and talk about their design process.
