PETS is an intuitive, physical experience-based programming learning kit. Kids can program its movement by inserting tangible command blocks into the top of PETS.

Imagine, a child is learning programming.
The child may be alone, sitting in front of PC, looking into the display, and typing the code using the keyboard and mouse.

PETS doesn’t require any PC or tablet. Kids can touch the command, move the object, and learn the basic of the programming. All you need to program PETS movement is the wooden blocks which fit to the top holes of PETS.

PETS is suitable as the first step in learning to program and developing computational thinking, even before the visual programming.

How to program PETS

Insert the basic blocks into the top holes of PETS, and push the start button!!
PETS moves steadily, and exactly as your command.
A grid on the table is the field of play.
A goal is set and PETS is placed on the start point,
you can avoid the obstacles with precise commands
Kids can search for the right path to the goal.

1. Learning the Basics

Students can learn the three basics of Control structures of programming, “Sequence”, “Iteration”, and “Selection”, from their interaction with PETS.

2. Simple, Intuitive Operation

PETS moves exactly as students command using the blocks, thus Students can start learning immediately because of its simplicity. Teachers can minimize their learning overhead.

3. The power of thinking

PETS can give students the chance to FAIL. PETS shows up with the actual movement for the trials by the students. Consequentially small failures can lead to a source of Imagination, Critical Insight, Logical thinking, and Self-motivated action.

4. All-in-one, extremely simple

PETS is operated without any cable, any wireless connection, nor tablet devices. And there is no need for a power outlet because it is fully battery powered.
