Perfect for makerspaces, libraries, museums, or classrooms the Intrepid Inventor is the screen-free way to explore robotics, STEM, and computational thinking. Designed for flexibility, the Intrepid Inventor supports six or twelve working groups.

Foster vital thinking skills in your classroom, makerspace, library, or museum. Fascinating and fun, Cubelets nurture your student’s imagination, creativity, and inventive spirit. Cubelets are the building blocks of better thinkers.

Get everything you need to start with teaching Cubelets in a handy printed reference book. Each bundle includes:

  • A grade-banded lesson book with 13 standards-aligned lesson plans.
  • Cubelets Activity cards for working with small groups.
  • Cubelets magnets for modeling and diagramming.
  • Student flashlights for helping with brightness investigations.
  • An anchoring chart.

Cubelets are a great introduction to computational thinking. Computational thinking is a fancy term for the way computer scientists solve problems. It helps break down complex problems, and find repeatable solutions. Computational Thinking is just one of the many skills that educators love to teach with Cubelets.

Just like building blocks only smarter.

Cubelets make the principles of programming easy to learn and practice. Inside of each block is a part of a program – as you build your robot you build the code that controls its behavior. It’s hands-on coding!

Most educators find groups between 3–5 students work best.

Group option 02.
Twelve student groups.
Option two provides 36 Cubelets to share and experiment with.
