Already #BuildingSTEAM with bloxels!

bloxels set description

Bloxels is not just another tech-enabled toy. It's a hands-on, brains-on, creativity and technology experience. Bloxels uniquely unlocks students’ innate creativity by leveraging something they love: video games. Students can play fun games and channel their creative potential as they gain greater understanding of important topics like design logic, and computer science and demonstrate their knowledge of history, science and mathematics and more through the games they create.

Ideal for Grades 1-5, Fun for Grades K-8

Most activities are scalable in complexity, so it’s appropriate for all grades, K through 8. Plus, it encourages collaboration, so players of all ages — parents, relatives, teachers, students and their friends — can build and play games together.

Lesson plans

In 2014 our team worked closely with the Grand Center Arts Academy (GCAA) to create the following lesson plans built around the Design Thinking Process made popular by the Stanford Design School. The teacher at GCAA, Andrew Goodin, started experimenting by using our game building tools to teach his students design thinking, and later volunteered to create these lesson plans to share with others.

These continue to be adapted and modified to support Bloxels.

Two examples are available for FREE download below and all are available in our new EDU Handbook, which also comes with every order of a 5 Pack or multiple thereof.
