Critical thinking is important in developing creative and innovative minds. Project-based learning (PBL) curriculum is introduced for students to allow active participation which involves scientific inquiry and application of mathematics in the context of technological designing or problem-solving. Programmable Tangible Blocks Robotic System for Early Childhood Education (C-Block) is proposed as a tool for children aged 4 to 7 to engage in PBL activity. C-Block is a kit which comprises of instruction blocks, programming mat and a mobile robot. This paper is aimed to describe the design methodology of the C-Block kits. The first prototype of the programming mat was fabricated and the results is discussed.
