Mylittlegeek.com shares new products every week that introduce children to tech, programming, and engineering. They’ve listed their four favorites, including Primo, a physical programming board for kids, and our very own Ladyada’s E is for Electronics Coloring Book:
Program a Robot Using Wooden Blocks: There are a lot of good remote-controlled toys and programable robots around, but most require a computer or iPad to enter the instructions. What I love about Primo is that it’s a physical programming board into which you place wooden pegs to give the robot it’s instructions. This makes a world of difference for young kids learning the basic concepts of programming. This is for kids aged 4-7 and does not even require literacy.
Electronics-themed Colouring Books: Ladyada’s E is for Electronics is a coloring book adventure with electronic components and their inventors. Makers of all ages can learn, color, and share common parts and historical figures throughout history.
