National Competition for cuboro school was held.The cuboro competition is to see how long one can construct a path for a ball to roll on a cuboro in 5 minutes under identical conditions.
Students aged 5 to 17 took on the challenge in one venue.
You have to roll slowly to get a long time, making it easier to stop.
The challenge is to build a path that leads from the start to the finish line and achieve a more extended time by devising ways to combine the 13 parts of the cuboro.
It helps children better understand how the cuboro parts work (the program) and fosters problem-solving skills.
The cuboro school effectively fosters the “ability to utilize information,” which is one of the “qualities and abilities that form the basis of learning,” by the Courses of Study.
Dr. Toshiyuki Shiomi, Professor Emeritus of the University of Tokyo, recommends the class.
Students aged 5 to 17 gathered from cuboro schools all over Japan, from Saitama in the north to Miyazaki in the south.
Some students create an image in their minds to make such a path.
In addition, some students repeat the experiment repeatedly at home.
Some students believe in the spark of the day and take on the challenge.
Each person has different thoughts.
We received a message of support for this cuboro national competition from Mr. Sebastian, President of Cuboro.
I would like to welcome all participants of the CUBORO Championship.
I am Sebastian Etter, CEO of CUBORO and son of the inventor of the CUBORO marble run system.
It is a pleasure to see so many people enjoying CUBORO and creatively developing and even competing in championships.
For almost 40 years, CUBORO has stood for lifelong learning, fun, and creativity. CUBORO can be used to create an infinite number of different marble runs. That’s why I am very excited about the solutions you will come up with today. There will certainly be unbelievable tracks built.
Now I wish you all much success and joy in building with CUBORO!
I send you warm greetings from Switzerland and hope to see you in person at the next championship in Japan.
Kensuke Onishi, a member of the House of Representatives supporting the cuboro school Class in Japan, came to this convention to encourage the children.
Students will have a limited amount of time to formulate their ideas.
They challenge themselves as best they can, ensuring that the path is the way they want it to be and that the combination has no mistakes or errors.
At the end of the time limit, the record is measured.
It is an unforgettable and emotional moment when the path is made the way you want, and the official record is recognized.
The analog and realistic success experience of the cuboro school fosters a sense of confidence and self-assurance that cannot be experienced in the online, virtual, or digital world.
The Embassy of Switzerland in Japan sponsored this year’s national cuboro competition, hoping to contribute to the education of Japanese children with Cubolo, an educational culture that originated in Switzerland.
Four children received excellence awards in this competition, with the most outstanding results.
There was one award winner in the Challenge Class because every challenger who tried for an extensive record failed to set a record because their ball stopped.
But that is a testament to the challenge and the result.
Schoolmates support each other and wish each further success, another power that the Cuboro classroom nurtures in the children.
Instead of being adversaries and denying each other, they are to cultivate the ability to support each other as friends striving for a higher level, regardless of age, region, or skill.
This year’s winners were from Kokubunji School for the Challenge Class and Tokorozawa and Okazaki Schools for the Junior Class.
A commemorative photo in front of each work.
After the competition, there was a recap and game tournament.
They reflected on today’s challenge independently and found their next goal.
Then, a game tournament was held for those who train and play cuboro well to enjoy each other’s games.
With a different look than at the competition, they become familiar with cuboro together with their friends.
The cuboro school is ideal for fostering children’s creativity in the age of AI, enhancing their programming thinking and learning skills while familiarizing them with cuboro.
President Sebastian has expressed interest in participating in the next competition, which may be held in the spring.
Everyone, please look forward to the next national competition.
