Coding in Pre-kindergarten

Pre-kindergarten students in Julie Brackett’s class recently received an introductory lesson in coding concepts. Using the colorful Bee-Bot/Code & Go Mouse STEM Kit, the young students were exposed to learning entry-level coding principles, such as estimation, problem-solving, and more. “When we play the game we use math by counting the spaces the mouse needs to move either forward, backward, right, or left,” said Brackett. “The game board can be changed into different combinations giving the students more tries at completing a course by using coding. The students are directing the mouse by programing the number of spaces the mouse needs to move.”
