Beginner’s Programming Challenge Cards
Each Class Pack includes 8 sets of 15 Beginner’s Programming Challenge Cards for an introduction to problem solving and building and navigating different puzzles.
Educator Guide Book
Each Class Pack includes a standards-aligned Educator Guide.
Each lesson is broken down into four main components:
- EXPLORATION: All learners, especially young learners, benefit from being able to freely explore something new. Through the process, learners develop questions, find answers, and begin to generate new ideas.
- SKILLS BUILDING: Skills Building highlights the skills used during this particular activity. These skills are developed and reinforced through focused practice.
- CHALLENGE: Learners apply their skills and ideas to successfully complete a challenge to demonstrate their level of learning during the activity.
- EXTENDED CHALLENGE: An extended challenge is provided when there is a chance for students to demonstrate additional understanding and skills development.
indi comes with specially designed cases for convenient carrying, storing, and charging.
Individual Student Cases
Each Class Pack includes 8 individual student cases designed for 1 to 3 students (1 indi, 20 durable latex-free rubber color tiles, 15 Beginner’s Programming Challenge Cards).
