Welcome to Play Code Learn Dinosaur Loops!
This is the second in a series of STEM kits designed and developed for learners, approximately aged 4 years to 8 years of age. It can be used both at home with family and/or as an educational resource in a classroom setting.
Dinosaur Loops uses a play based approach to learning with a practical kit that introduces and develops understanding of algorithms and a fun, educational app that takes students to the next stage of Digital Technologies (DT) understanding and knowledge with programming & Augmented Reality (AR).
Can students solve problems by giving instructions to Explorer Ed the robot?
Can they get Explorer Ed to visit the Dinosaurs in the Jurassic land?
3 easy steps to use Dinosaur Loops:
Use the jigsaw to make a jurassic land,
Use the unplugged cards to write, test and debug algorithms telling Explorer Ed how to move around the land of the dinosaurs,
Scan the dinosaur lands and jigsaw with AR mode in the ByteEd App. Use programming to help Explorer Ed visit the dinosaurs!
