Connect robots to free apps to learn from data values, swap Personalities, or code new behaviors with a Bluetooth Hat!
Foster vital thinking skills in your classroom, makerspace, library, or museum. Fascinating and fun, Cubelets nurture your student’s imagination, creativity, and inventive spirit. Cubelets are the building blocks of better thinkers.
Every Cubelets set and pack includes access to free standards-aligned lesson plans, printable activity cards, online professional development, and more. Be sure to check out the Cubelets Education Resources to learn more.
Get everything you need to start with teaching Cubelets in a handy printed reference book. Each bundle includes:
Cubelets check all the “boxes” – from lesson plans to professional development we’ve assembled this handy administrator checklist to share with anyone involved in making an educational investment.
Cubelets are a great introduction to computational thinking. Computational thinking is a fancy term for the way computer scientists solve problems. It helps break down complex problems, and find repeatable solutions. Computational Thinking is just one of the many skills that educators love to teach with Cubelets.
Just like building blocks only smarter.
Cubelets make the principles of programming easy to learn and practice. Inside of each block is a part of a program – as you build your robot you build the code that controls its behavior. It’s hands-on coding!
Each Cubelet has a special function and belongs to one of three categories: SENSE Cubelets take in information from the robot’s environment. THINK Cubelets compute and change that information, and ACT Cubelets turn that information into physical action.
Connect at least one SENSE, THINK, and ACT Cubelet to create a robot construction.
Cubelets’ magnetic faces make them simple to snap together and pull apart. Each Cubelet has a special function. What you connect, and how you connect them changes the behavior of your robot constructions. Every combination is a new creation.
The yellow Brick Adapters connect to LEGO® and other brick building- block toys. Discovery Set includes one “studs” and one “sockets” adapter so you can build in any direction.
*LEGO does not support nor endorse this product.
The Bluetooth® Hat pairs robot constructions with free Cubelets apps. The simple, proximity-based pairing makes connecting easy. Cap your creations with the Bluetooth Hat to add new abilities, read robot data values, and code new behaviors in Blockly or C.
Most educators find groups between 3–5 students work best.
Option two provides 36 Cubelets to share and experiment with.
Enable a construction to detect and respond to light.
Enable a construction to detect and respond to nearby objects.
Build robot constructions with precise data value control.
Build robot constructions that react to changes in temperature.
Provide the energy needed to power robot constructions.
Pass power but block all data values.
Flip data values, making low values high and vice versa.
Build bigger robots, without modifying data values.
Pass only the highest data values detected within a construction.
Pass only the lowest data values detected within a construction.
Block data values below the selected threshold.
Display block values on a 0–10 scale. Great for debugging.
Create constructions that shine a dimmable LED light.
Build robot constructions that navigate their world.
Make robots that beep and chirp based on block values.
Create constructions that whirl and twirl.
Add style and expand building capabilities with LEGO® or other brick building toys. Includes 24 "studs" and 24 "sockets" adapters.
A durable padded place to store and transport your Cubelets.
Charge up to five Battery Cubelets at a single time. It's great for classroom management.
Recharge your Battery Cubelet to power your robot constructions for hours on end.
Cubelets are recommended for builders ages 4 and up. Cubelets are intuitive enough for preschoolers to start building robots, but they scale in complexity, teaching new skills as kids grow. Cubelets are even loved and used in university computer science programs!
The key to every Cubelets construction is the Battery Cubelet. A fully charged Battery Cubelet can power up to 6 hours of robot activity. Recharge the Battery using the included Micro-USB cable. When fully charged, the amber light on the Battery Cubelet will turn off.
