Yesterday a new Kickstarter campaign was launched for what looks to be a fabulous board game called Robot Turtles. Its aim is to help younger kids begin bending their minds around key concepts of computer programming. Because most of us parents realize how programming will be an incredibly handy skill for our kids to have, the Kickstarter was fully funded in just five hours and has now more than quadrupled that amount.
My daughter is incredibly digitally savvy – not to mention in love with Minecraft – so I’ve been trying to find apps for her to use that will help her get interested in programming. I’ve tried a few, and while she likes them all, she still finds some basic concepts a bit frustrating. Luckily, in researching this piece I found a couple more to try, and I can’t wait to get my hands on Robot Turtles. *grin*
So with no further ado, check out these five apps that can help your kids go down the coding path.
