Transforming Learning with Computational Thinking Games!

Our journey towards crafting the ultimate board game for computational thinking is making remarkable strides. Here's where we stand:

Finalized Theme: We've locked in an exciting theme that'll make learning an adventure filled with excitement and discovery!

4 Thrilling Levels: Each level has been meticulously crafted with mechanics, components, and attributes that put computational thinking front and center.

Research-Driven Innovation: Our team has poured extensive research into making this game a groundbreaking tool for promoting computational thinking in early years classrooms. We're dedicated to making learning fun and engaging.

Student Testing: We have put parts of our game to the test with bright young minds aged 4 to 8. The results? Absolutely astonishing!

The Next Step: Our journey continues as we prepare to take the game into partner schools for real-world testing. A demo mock-up is on the horizon, and we can't wait to see young learners dive into the world of computational thinking.

Stay tuned for more updates as we bring this innovative educational game to life! Together, we're shaping the future of learning.

  Building the Future of Learning Through Board Games!

Board games are formed from three core elements: Mechanics, Theme, and Components.

We've set our course by choosing an exciting theme, and now, we're in the heart of fine-tuning the game's mechanics and components!

Mechanics: We're crafting the rules and objectives that'll make the learning experience engaging and fun. Think of it as the roadmap for adventure!

Components: Every piece, card, and board square - they all matter! We're ensuring each element is perfect to bring the game to life.

Exciting news! Next week, we embark on crafting the very first prototype. This prototype will be our guiding star as it makes its way to participating schools for some real-world testing.

Stay tuned as we journey toward a new era of education, where learning meets play in the most delightful way!
