Game That Teaches the Basics of Robotics

The Robotizen app for iOS and Android teaches children aged 4–9 the basics of computer programming and robotics through a variety of interactive learning activities in an interesting story. The app is inspired by visual programming languages such as Scratch from MIT, Alice from Carnegie Mellon, and other “beginner” programming languages (for example, Logo, SmallTalk, and Squeak). The word-free interface allows anyone, anywhere to play. Children master core computer science concepts such as sequencing, algorithmic thinking, debugging, and looping. To be successful, children must determine the actions needed to solve each problem in story mode. They order actions in a logical sequence, recognize patterns, and use those patterns to make their code more efficient. Then they test their solutions, fix issues from the test results, retest the solutions, and finally optimize the solutions for better results. Teachers, librarians, and verified nonprofit educational institutions may download the app, which is available from Mage Studio at no charge. In-app purchases ($1.99/item) are offered.
