Why It Is Fun
Learning a new skill like programming is empowering. Kids love it because they feel in control and get to show you their stuff. You get to watch and be amazed!
Through simple commands used to program the Robot Turtle, kids learn what it means to write code, debug and use functions.
The best part? Kids have all the control acting as programmers to boss around the parent, the computer!
As they play, kids unlock new challenges like Ice Walls, Lasers, and the Function Frog. Start with your four year old but expect to play for years to come!
Learn, be silly and just have fun it a coding game that encourages kids and parents to spend meaningful time together away from the screen.
