Primo – Teaching programming logic to young children
Primo looks like a traditional wooden toy set, but it has been designed to teach young children the basics of computer science away from a screen.
In their own words, the guys behind this Kickstarter project describe Primo as “a play-set that uses shapes, colours and spacial awareness to teach programming logic through a tactile, warm and magical learning experience. Primo makes an incredibly important, but otherwise uninteresting topic to children, enjoyable and fun.”
Colourful wooden blocks connect to an interface board which direct Cubetto the robot home. By creating simple algorithms with the blocks, children learn the logical foundation of programming that they can then apply to more advanced coding later in life.
This is a great educational toy bringing digital processing into the analogue world and simplifying the concept for children to understand.
