 Teach math, language arts, literacy, and enhance physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development with mTiny Curricula!

Screen-Free Coding

mTiny offers screen-free multi-sensory learning: no external mobile phones or tablet PCs are required to work with mTiny, making it a screen free coding solution. mTiny enables children to engage different senses to increase attention and explore the world around them.

Interact with the Map for fun and Learning: mTiny comes with a tap pen controller and an interactive map which distinguishes it from other products. They are easy to use. Combined with a range of coding games for different levels, this remote controlled educational robot kit interacts with young children to spark their passion for discovery and learning computational thinking.

mTiny STEM Curriculum

Teacher-led lessons are in game and story-book themes and provide hours of STEAM and coding with cross-curricula, hands-on activities (grades PK-2). The 14 included lessons are approx 55 minutes each with activities in 15-30 minutes that are flexible for classes, clubs, after-school, or camps.

Cross-curricular Content: mTiny Curricula introduces young children to math and music. Designed (in alignment) with modern educational philosophies in mind, mTiny finds a better way to spark children's curiosity for knowledge and develop their logical thinking from an early age.  The Curricula book includes Physical, Cognitive, and Social-emotional competencies as well as coding, math, and language arts.

Developing early literacy and numeracy through hands-on activities, the curricula has been designed to help educators learn, plan, and implement joyful robotics activities in early years settings. The printed Teacher Guide is suitable for educators with or without experience of programming or computer science. It is adaptable, flexible, and easy to use. The guide not only explains some of the basic programming concepts but also offers example STEAM learning activities using mTiny.

  • Science: Apply NGSS science concepts: Waves: Light and Sound;  Engineering Design; Structure, Function, and Information Processing
  • Technology: Apply CSTA-K-2 Coding; Students analyze problems, use logic and develop reasoning, use sequence, loops, events, conditionals, understand human-robot interactions, cultural and social interactions, and algorithms.
  • Engineering:  Apply NGSS engineering design concepts with robots.
  • Arts: Read picture books, create models and drawings, create music, follow multi-step procedures, write explanatory texts.
  • Math: Reason abstractly and solve multi-step real world problems, number sense, counting, symbols, spatial sense, shapes and patterns, parts and wholes, sets and groups, sorting and categorizing, sequencing, comparison.
