Pixel Blocks are simple wooden blocks that help young kids learn computer science and computational thinking concepts.
Things to know about Pixel Blocks:
- Pixel Blocks were thoughtfully developed so they can be used in a variety of ways to learn many different concepts.
- The idea for Pixel Blocks was born out of the daily computer science activities I've been posting to Instagram for close to a year.
- My ideas are heavily influenced by the work of Seymour Papert and Maria Montessori.
- Pixel Blocks are made in American by an eco-friendly manufacturer in Middlebury, Vermont; they've been producing child-safe wooden toys since 1979.
- From the manufacturer: "The materials in the Pixel Blocks are below the detectable lead level of 10 ppm. The current federal standard is 90 ppm. While we never add lead to our products we will never claim our products to be 'lead-free.' Lead is a trace background element and cannot be 100% eliminated. Do not believe any claims of products being lead-free, it cannot be guaranteed."
