Coding with Vehicle Sensor Technologies Kit

Product Code: ST-7820


Explore the science and sensors behind today’s modern vehicles, while teaching students about physical science as they design, test, measure and code with sensors that mimic real-world vehicle technology.

Block-Based Coding

Blockly simplifies the programming process for new coders. Visual coding blocks connect like puzzle pieces to help students master the basics of programming, without having to worry about their syntax.


Wireless and easy-to-use, the //code.Node includes six sensor inputs, a speaker, RGB light, and an LED array that enables students to explore exciting phenomena using block-based programs that collect, display, and respond to data.

//code.Node Cart

The //code.Node Cart transforms the //code.Node into a programmable vehicle sensing device, enabling students to replicate, program, and investigate automotive technology like real-life engineers. Includes additional accessories to support the included investigations.
