Coding in the Classroom

Students will soon be able to personalize their own Code Cube! Pitsco Education's Code Cube is the latest in wearable codeable technology. A true coding experience not based around a robot, Code Cube enables students to learn to program their very own wearable tech that is unique to them. A downloadable teacher's guide with a variety of guided and open-ended lesson plans and projects is included.

Another new coding offering is Smart Buddies™, which features a set of diverse, relatable characters on self-balancing, programmable scooters called Siggys. With Smart Buddies, students can better envision how they might one day end up working in a STEM field. The solution uses the Smart Buddies app, which introduces students to buddy-based e-books and block-based coding missions.

The A in STEAM!

A great addition to any classroom or makerspace, the 3Doodler Start pen gets the attention of any student in a split second. The pen is simple to use and an easy way to integrate art into any subject – science, technology, engineering, math, or any cross-curricular combination. The 3Doodler Start pen comes in a convenient six-pack or 12-pack, including filament and teacher's kit.
