Cubit Education

Cubit projects tap into the fun in creating and we really enjoy working together to make creating with Cubit the best experience possible.
Our projects combine design and engineering by integrating programming and building into one easy to use platform that can start simple and grow with you as you develop your skills through creating with Cubit.
Cubit project inspirations have something for everyone: from smart cars, musical horns, bedazzled butterflies, and earthquake tables!

Cubit in classrooms
  • Interactive art and tech captivates students
  • Lessons thoughtfully aligned to standards
  • Simple implementation into classroom environment

Fun for Both Students and Educators

Fun for Both Students and Educators

Interactive art and technology incorporates light, music, and sound that engages a diverse student population. We call it the “Lean in Moment” when students realize how quickly and easily they can control the light, sound, and movement of their creations. Students who never expressed a desire or confidence in programming or building become budding designers, engineers, and programmers.

Developed by Educators and Engineers for Educators

Developed by Educators and Engineers for Educators

We understand the pressures, challenges, and hopes that educators have for themselves and their classes because our team includes educators who have faced the same challenges of building incredible STEAM programs. Our growing community of Cubit educators share stories of successes and recommendations with our fellow educators and engineers. This unique collaboration of engineers and educators delivers a unique education that invites everyone to be creative.

Sensors Display Live Data

Sensors Display Live Data

Measure, display, and record changes in temperature, light, speed, velocity, acceleration and more in real time. Students can see the impact of sensor inputs and immediately observe changes in data recorded. Observing these patterns in real time encourages students to think about the phenomena and test their ideas. The data displayed on the graph interface can be saved to a csv file to analyze later for real world integrated projects across math, science, art, history, language arts and technology.

I have been using robots with microcontrollers in education for over 13 years. The Cubit is a game changer. It makes programming and wiring so much easier for students. Students can now spend more time understanding concepts and being creative and less time being frustrated by obscure coding syntax.

Endless Possibilities

Each kit can be reconfigured into multiple projects over the course of your school year. Projects can grow with student groups creating a part of a larger project or individual projects that can grow in complexity over time as students develop their creative skills. The flexible interface and rapid prototyping increases student persistence in project work. Design thinking with the incorporation of artistry with projects extends the ability for students’ self expression for a wide variety of project outcomes.

Educators FAQ’s

How do I power Cubit?

You have the option of powering it directly from a USB power source or other DC power supply up to 6V. Smartware connected to the Controller will be powered automatically.

Can I attach my own sensors, motors or other electronics to Cubit?

Yes. Cubit also allows you to connect your own piece of electronics by using Cubit's Analog and GPIO Smartware. GPIO Smartware come with a set of general-purpose I/O pins for you to connect your own custom electronics. You can then create custom commands within Workshop to identify and use your customized piece of electronics!

Can I program Cubit outside of Workshop?

Yes. Cubit Controllers run Lua, an open source scripting language. The visual programming interface in Cubit Workshop is meant to help you create programs quickly without coding, but you can still write Lua code directly if you prefer.

What is the range of the Bluetooth?

The Cubit Controller uses Bluetooth with an effective range of 15 to 20 feet.
