Teach

Programming

In AlgoBot, students encounter concepts from variable management to recursive functions and optimization strategies. They progress through simple algorithms toward mind-boggling puzzles and mastery.

Functions

Using functions is a fundamental programming skill. Functions allow students to become more efficient by re-using bits of code and make longer programs more manageable by cutting it into steps.

Critical thinking

Even the best programmers make mistakes. And that’s fine! Having to debug their code urges students take an analytical look at the programs they’ve written and help them learn from their errors.
