Coding Express is our new creative, intuitive and versatile solution that will inspire your early learners to explore early coding concepts while also developing critical 21st century skills such as confidence, creativity and collaboration. The new action bricks will make the train come to life as the children place them around the tracks to sound the horn, turn the lights on and off, pause and refuel, change direction and stop the train. The solution includes teacher material developed to inspire educators to help children understand basic early coding concepts, such as sequencing, looping and conditional coding.
