The building blocks of better thinkers.

Why blocks?

You can build all sorts of things with blocks. Our world is made of blocks. Wood and brick blocks form our homes. Inside, glass blocks filled with code blocks bend light into blocks of letters that shape our perspectives.

And now – robot blocks can help you build better thinkers. 

The experiences we create for students shape them. Cubelets are designed to help students build cognitive skills. So they can solve the biggest problems and teach all the standards we need to cover.

Meet Cubelets.

Cubelets are robot blocks that help teach important problem-solving skills – like collaboration, engineering, design, and computational thinking.

The fast and easy way to build robots.

Cubelets are the only way to build a robot made of a bunch of smaller robots.

Designed to meet you where you are.

Cubelets are versatile. They're used by Pre-K explorers and PhDs.

Loved by educators everywhere.

Find Cubelets wherever learning happens–class, camp, museum, & home.

Learn the biggest lessons from little things.

Cubelets are used to help teach the skills needed to solve life's biggest problems.

Just like building blocks, only smarter.

You’ve never built with blocks like these. Cubelets are the only way to build a robot where you build with a bunch a of tiny robots. 

Combine the 17 unique kinds of Cubelets in different ways to create countless robot constructions. Every design is a new robot construction and it all starts when you combine the three basic categories of Cubelets.

There are three types of Cubelets - SENSE, THINK, and ACT.

The principles of better thinking.

Cubelets are building toys for building new mindsets. They’re for anyone with an open mind who wants to learn the skills needed to solve big problems. To explain what all this means is to explain what Cubelets are really for. 

Cubelets are the building blocks of better thinkers, and their design helps students practice the principles of better thinking.
