Considering how to build the robots is a problem-solving activity, developing both analytic and creative thinking skills. Effective problem solving requires a controlled mixture of both analytic (left-brain activity) and creative (right-brain activity) thinking. Good problem solvers switch from one set of skills to the other. Cross-brain thinking is not always easy but becomes easier with problem-solving practice.
Analytic (logic) skills are developed through ordering the pieces, comparing them, contrasting them, evaluating them and selecting the correct piece. The child must select the best alternative from the options available by narrowing down the range of possibilities (a convergent process).
Creative skills are developed when a child decides what the robot will look like as this is open-ended construction.
Building and construction activities are a great tool for building attention span in children because the activity requires focus and concentration for completion.
Visual-spatial skills are required as children make sense of the pieces and how they relate to one another. Spatial skills are fundamental to mathematics.
