How can we teach children the basics of computer programming?
Computer programming is increasingly important in today's world and workforce. For young children to learn how to program, they must first learn the fundamentals of creating patterns.
Ebuc includes a maze, a colorful, LED-lit ball, and responsive directional pieces to teach the basics of coding through gamified pattern-making. To get the ball through the maze, children have to create a pattern with the direction pieces; the directional pieces will cause the ball to move left, right, forward, or reverse, as well as accellerate, stop, or light-up. As the child navigates the ball through the maze using the commands on the directional pieces, they're learning the value of pattern-making and the fundamentals of computer programming.
