Break the Code: Algobrix is Perfect for Teaching Kids Programming


What It Is: Programming is becoming as basic a skill as typing these days, with the next gen learning it from an earlier and earlier age. As a result, toy manufacturers are stepping up and bringing you cool ways to make coding fun and intuitive down the road. Case in point, Algobrix: A new modular learning system that teaches kids how to program bots with different activity cards that will guide them to connect various components on a LEGO-like board. As they connect pieces, their bot will do more tasks, making it fun on both ends.

Who It’s For: Algobrix is available in various kits for kids as young as preschoolers, going up to sets for 13-year-olds.

What It Costs: Prices start at $169 USD + $25 shipping for a starter kit.

Where It’s At: Back this unique and clever project on Kickstarter now to score awesome discounts from retail pricing.

Want to score an extra entry into yesterday’s equally brainy giveaway for a rocket set? Just tell me in the comments below what you think of this gift idea – know anyone that would love it?
