Coding for all ages and abilities

Cubetto turns coding into a tangible, young age-appropriate experience that aims to reduce screen-time, increase engagement and enhance learning. Coding with Cubetto happens with hands-on coding blocks, which means children can use it irrespective of reading ability or language barriers.

Due to its tangible coding language Cubetto does not rely on written word for young people to engage with it. This makes it suitable for ESL, non-sighted children and children with a variety of Special Educational Needs.

Using Cubetto provides an opportunity to practise life skills such as collaboration and hands-on play while helping to develop other important skills such as spatial awareness, teamwork, and storytelling (a library favourite!).

An optional pack of coding blocks are available which expand Cubetto’s movements to include negation and random functions, allowing older users to create more complex code sequences.
