A brand new coding adventure for kids!
Working with the award-winning company Primo Toys, Hertfordshire Libraries are very excited to be piloting brand new family learning sessions where families can learn together, through hands-on play, the basics of coding.
Cubetto is a Montessori-learning based toy, with no screens, programmed by adding coloured blocks into a control board. Using the Cubetto robot, and with your help, your children can learn about sequencing, subroutines and commands without realising.
The session is also designed to encourage creativity and problem solving; “Cubetto is about communicating, creativity, storytelling, literacy and all these things together” explains Valeria Leonardi, COO of Primo Toys.
At Harpenden, Berkhamsted and Baldock Libraries, we’ll be blasting off into space, taking Cubetto on an out of this world adventure. Together, parents, carers and children will learn by playing and experimenting, and have the opportunity to take on coding challenges.
We’ve already sold out the sessions at Harpenden and Baldock libraries, but there are still tickets available at Berkhamsted library for the 21st August; if you’d like to help us pilot this very exciting new event, we’d love to see you there.
To get the best out of every session, tickets are limited to only 10 children per session. We also ask that all children are accompanied by adults, with a maximum of 2 children per adult.
Due to small parts, the sessions are only suitable for children aged 4 to 8 years.
The last few tickets are available for Tuesday 21st August from 3.00pm – 4.30pm at Berkhamsted Library.
Tickets are £2 per child, available directly from Berkhamsted library.
