As part of this development track your child will build interactive circuits using programmable electronic building blocks part of the Makeblock Neuron Inventors kit. With these interactive blocks your child will interact with the real world using sensors embedded into these programmable building blocks and string the different blocks together to get them to perform tasks. Makeblock Neuron Inventor Kit provides us with a set of programmable electronic building blocks including a buzzer, LED’s, bluetooth connectivity, touch sensors and a gyro. Combined with intuitive graphical programming, Makeblock Neuron opens up the world of creative making helping your child turn their ideas into real, working gadgets.
The Makeblock Neuron building blocks are connected in a snap with magnetic Pogo Pins. Users can simply assemble the blocks to make creative gadgets without needing to write any code. The graphical programming interface in the Neuron app enables beginners to easily create Neuron applications and add basic or advanced functionality (e.g. IoT) into their inventions. The blocks are compatible with the Makeblock platform and LEGO® blocks. Neuron gadgets can be controlled and programmed using mBlock on desktop and the Neuron app on mobile devices.
The Makeblock Neuron Inventors kit including the associated tutorials in this development track is aimed at kids between 6-8 years and offers a great way to introduce your child to the world of making and creating using easy to use programmable electronic blocks. If you are looking for a more structured electronics track for older kids you might want to consider the following development tracks here at KidzCanCode.com –
About the Makeblock Neouron
Makeblock Neuron is a programmable electronic building block platform for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education. The Makeblock Neuron Invetor’s kit contains different kinds of snap-on blocks with various different functions helping little creators build a variety of innovative gadgets. One can program these blocks using an intuitive flow-based programming language. With these programmable blocks young kids can explore the world of electronics safely simply by clipping these magnetic blocks to one another and interacting with the real world using the sensors embedded within them. Programming is as simple as drawing lines on the ipad/andriod app, connecting the different blocks to get them to perform the required actions. Makeblock Neuron enables creators of all programming levels to turn their ideas and concepts into reality.
