LEGO Education has unveiled a new early learning product, dubbed Coding Express.

The new toy consists of five action bricks and helps to build coding and transferable skills. The initiative gives children space to explore the emotions, journeys, music and math.

“With the launch of Coding Express, we are excited to extend our education portfolio further and introduce fundamental coding and STEAM concepts to the youngest learners,” says Esben Stærk Jørgensen, president, LEGO Education. “The launch of Coding Express comes on the heels of the 10th anniversary of LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 and the 20th anniversary of LEGO MINDSTORMS, which have been used in classrooms around the world to promote essential STEAM and coding concepts in primary and secondary schools. There is no better time than today to ensure the youngest learners also have access to a relevant, fun and engaging way to learn these foundational skills and to develop 21st-century skills which we know will prepare them for a lifetime of successful learning.”

Coding Express is accompanied by the LEGO Education Coding Express Teacher Guide, which features eight lessons for classroom use.

Each Coding Express can be used for up to six users at the same time. The toy will become available in the U.S. and China in October. Coding express will be released in additional markets through 2019.
