ArtimatIQa Junior is a program designed for children ages three and four. It involves learning through play, motor skills, polygon activities aimed at solving given problems. We stimulate and work on the development of gross and fine motor skills, balance, movement coordination, eye-hand coordination as well as classification concepts.
We introduce children to the Code and Go robot, which guides us through the world of movement and solving complex spatial problems. Coding literally means transforming information into a form that the computer understands – we in the Junior Program tell the mouse what to do through coding. The Code & Go Mouse has simple controls – Forward, Back, Turn Right, Turn Left, and Action Button. Although it seems quite simple, your child will have to think of coding up to 40 mouse movements to solve the maze and reach the goal! All children will have the opportunity to program the movement of the robot according to their idea of solving the given problem. We encourage co-operation and joint planning among children.
Within one teaching unit, all elements are linked, so if we are working on color and shape adoption, the same topic will be addressed in motor tasks (polygon) and our Code & Go mouse will solve logical tasks related to color and shape.
