The 21 Century focus. For young leaders of the future.
Our children are gifted with the power to invent and achieve amazing technological feats. Most of all, it’s through creative play that they learn how to exploit these skills.
What is Coding or Computer Programming?
Coding, or computer programming, is a creative process that ‘computer programmers’ or ‘coders’ use to tell a computer how to perform a task.
It is where you take instructions (the steps in a task) and translate it into a language that the computer understands, since computers do not ‘talk’ like humans. They talk in a language called BINARY, which in its most base form uses 0’s and 1’s.
Coders write the instructions using a programming language. You may have heard of programming languages such as BASIC, HTML, Java and Python. These are all programming languages that are built on the base ‘Binary’ language of 0’s and 1’s.
Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. It is also the language that for example gives a simple command to a computer such as ‘PRINT’, as well as much more complex commands.
Why learn coding logic?
The benefit of learning coding or computer programming is that people who know how to code will be able to communicate across countries and cultures. They will also be innovative, and solve problems more efficiently, with less barriers to their success.
Learning programming at a young age gives children a head-start in this very important skill, helping them solve everyday problems and get set up for a lifetime of opportunities.
Interestingly, children as young as 5 years can learn to code. It usually comes naturally to them, as they just need to deal with the logic of communicating with the computer, without first having to translate their intentions from their native language to a computer language!
CIRCUIT MAZE | Electrical Circuits & Coding for Kids
A fun introduction to Coding logic for children and electrical circuitry! With Circuit Maze Coding for Kids, among the most popular coding games for children, your goal is to create real electrical circuits that light up designated beacons. Arrange the tokens to form a circuit path to light up the beacons indicated on the challenge card, and discover how circuits actually work.
A circuit is a complete path around which electricity can flow. It must include a source of electricity, such as a battery. Materials that allow electric current to pass through them easily, called conductors, can be used to link the positive and negative ends of a battery, creating a circuit.
These clever circuit-building puzzles provide a boost of brainpower and a wonderful introduction to electronics for kids and coding logic for children.
With 60 clever and tricky challenges ranging in difficulty from beginner to expert, this logic game will provide engineers of all levels with hours of electrifying fun. Fun Programming games for kids.
What the Kit Includes:
• 1 Game Grid
