Keiki Engineering: Coding for Preschoolers
(Honolulu 2015) Question: What do jelly sandwiches and milk and cookies have to do with coding?
The Tinker & Do Academy’s Keiki Engineering program launched its second unit, “Cool Coding!” at Pali Preschool this Fall. Using games and programmable robots, our 4-5 year old students were introduced to basic coding concepts and ideas through guided play.
Highly engaging activities included programming BeeBots, mapping paths for OzoBot and even an introduction to developing “truth tables”!
Special thanks to Pali Preschool Director, Nancy Moore, for giving us the opportunity to launch Keiki Engineering lessons there.DESIGNING CODE FOR OZOBOTWRITING “CODE” FOR BEEBOTCURIOUS ONLOOKERS
