Coding Express is a creative and intuitive solution that introduces preschoolers to early coding and critical 21st century skills, while naturally sparking their curiosity, creativity and desire to explore and learn together..
Based on the ever-popular train theme, LEGO® coding express is a highly versatile solution that allows children to intuitively explore early coding concepts while developing problem-solving skills, critical thinking and collaboration.
LEGO® education coding express includes 234 DUPLO bricks including Push & Go train with lights and sounds, motor, colour sensor that interacts with 5 colored action bricks and 2 railroad switches. You will also find a Getting Started activity card and 6 double-sided inspiration cards.
Make your train pause, stop, change direction, sound the horn, and more! Taking the familiarity of a train and combining it with the new action bricks, early learners will learn through play about sequencing, looping, conditional coding, and cause and effect by placing the new action bricks within the train’s track. Each action brick creates a specific action allowing for students to test and redesign ways to problem-solve and work together to get their train to its destination.
Lessons for LEGO® Coding Express were developed based on the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the 21st Century Early Learning framework (P21) and Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework guidelines and will enable young children to learn early coding skills while preparing them to thrive in the 21st century.
Coding Express includes a free optional app which combines physical play with digital intervention and is designed to enhance the experience. When you introduce the app, the 4 different themed activities change the way the action bricks behave, altering the effect on the train.
