Teaching kids coding and STEM concepts is going to be much easier with the right toys and kits. We have already covered plenty of robots and apps to teach kids programming. These games can also prove useful to young students:
Osmo Coding: introduces your children to coding in an interactive fashion. It comes with physical blocks that can be snapped together to create commands and solve problems on your tablet.
CodeGamer: a STEM kit that helps your children learn Arduino programming through games. Users can add sensors and write their own programs.
Coder MIP: a programmable robot for kids. It has a drag & drop interface for commands. The robot communicates through motion, sound, and LED lights.
CoDrone: a programmable drone that gets kids familiar with the basics of coding. It comes with sensors and an on-board camera.
Dash & Dot Robot Kit: these are cute robots that keep your children entertained and teach them the fundamentals of coding. They have sensors to hear sounds and detect objects.
Itty Bitty City: a STEM kit with smart modules to teach coding. It comes with mCookie modules and sensors that have LEGO brackets. These modules are Arduino compatible. You can program this using a drag & drop interface.
