about this item

Can you keep your robot on the brink? In this hands-on game you get to play programmer building “procedures” that guide your robot along a path from start to finish. There are 40 challenges picturing colored paths. The colors signify moves for your robot to follow. Your job? Finding the correct sequence of moves for each color. To do so you’ll need to flex your forward thinking and problem solving muscles. On the Brink takes the coding concept of sequencing to the next level through its multi-challenge format. The beginner challenges introduce sequencing in its simplest form so that you’ll become a real master. By the time you get to the advanced level you’ll be ready to build complex procedures using sequences within sequences—now that’s thinking like a true programmer!

CODE is a series of games designed to help kids build the mental skills needed to understand advanced programming concepts. We think coding is like a superpower. And it’s never too early for superpowers. That’s why we’ve found a way to wrap college-level coding concepts into a unique, unplugged play experience.

My son has been interested in coding for awhile and has tried some software and basic courses, but being 11, he has a hard time with them. I thought this might help him better understand and learn.
