|Primo, a robotics platform for small hands with big ideas||
Baltimore-based FutureMakers will lead a day of hands-on exploration and programming skills for for families with children ages 4 - 7 and early childhood educators and using Primo, a robotics platform for small hands with big ideas.
Primo is designed for children with emerging or limited literacy skills, and lays the logical foundation necessary for early programming. Children use three wooden elements - an interface board, a rolling robot and a set of brightly colored instruction blocks that represent the code. Combining the blocks with the board allows the user to control the robot, thus creating very simple algorithms - using only shapes and colors.
Primo can be found in libraries in greater Baltimore, and across the state - thanks to the MSDE Department of Library Development Services.
