Product Description:

There was a time that coding and robotics was reserved for older students, but Robotics for Young Children uses hands-on activities to help lay the foundation for the very young (for ages 3-8). Through games, play, and stories, children will be introduced to foundational computer science concepts. There are five chapters in this book presented in a specific sequence: Chapter 1 is to foster creative and critical thinking; Chapter 2 focuses on engineering; Chapter 3 introduces coding-related concepts; Chapter 4 focuses on how robots can help us; and Chapter 5 presents activities to help children go from an introductory to a higher level of understanding. Each chapter presents information along with activities that can typically be done with easily accessible items. Suggestions for expanding activities and sources for online information are sometimes included. Additional resource lists and a glossary are found in the back of the book. 100 hands-on activities will introduce your child to the world of robotics. 148 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

Do you have to have a computer for all the activities, or just the computer science ones?
User on Jul 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a difficult question to answer as the whole purpose of the book is to introduce coding and programming to students. Yes, there are some activities that do not take a computer per se but all activities are pointing to computer topics.
