ROBOT TURTLES | Programming Game for Kids

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, programming languages 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!

Robot Turtles is the board game for Little Programmers. A Fun Way to Learn Code for Kids. Sneakily teaches programming fundamentals to kids ages 5+. For 2 – 5 players
The most backed board game in Kickstarter history. Inspired by the Logo programming language, the game lets kids write programs with playing cards.
With this programming game for kids pre-schoolers learn the fundamentals of programming, from coding to functions, while making silly turtle noises! Before you know it, your little one will be writing computer games rather than just playing them!
You play as the Turtle Mover (think Dungeon Master), guiding your little Turtle Masters (the kids) into chaining together a string of moves to get their turtle to their jewel. If they mess up, they are allowed to debug (it’s literally a bug token) their programming to find the error.
Robot Turtles allows players to level up and access various “unlockables” as they advance, so the challenge stays fresh. The possibilities for game board setups are endless making each game of an exciting new experience.
A great game for parents to play with their kids and teach them a love of programming – the perfect way to pass a love of coding onto children! It includes instructions for more advanced game play to adapt the game as your child’s skills evolve.
The game board itself is 51cm square – big enough for everyone to easily see the board during those big game days and nights – for young and old.
What You Get:
• Game Board
• 4 Bug Tiles
• 36 Obstacle Tiles
• 4 Jewel Tiles
• 4 Robot Turtle Tiles
• 4 Code Card Decks
• Full Instructions
• Problem solving
• Forward Thinking
• Plus much more!
Enjoy hours of fun while learning coding and programming.
