Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Can kids learn the basics of coding without sitting in front of a screen? Of course they can. Mark Engelberg is using his background at NASA …to design code learning games at ThinkFun. His code programming game series…available at Target stores is designed for tweens and teens…and each board game is focused on a specific kind of skill…
“On the Brink focuses on learning about procedures and abstraction. The second game, Rover Control, focuses on understanding how code instructions are executed by a computer and especially things conditional branching and looping structures. And then the final game, Robot Repair, focuses on Boolean algebra.”
Unplugged learning and fun. The games are priced at about fifteen dollars.
