About the Project

Algobrix teaches kids how to code by guiding them through the steps of programming a robot's movements. But instead of scripts to write, they have blocks to arrange, in a tangible way that's true to real coding. It's the awesomeness of robots, the lasting fun of building blocks, and the problem solving of 3D puzzles. It's Algobrix.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    It works just like actual code.

  • Reality:

    The focus on teaching kids, at a young age, to code is gaining in popularity. Algobrix achieves this by giving each a function and then tell the robot what to do when placed in a certain order.

  • Claim:

    Algobrix teaches kids how to code by guiding them through the steps of programming a robot's movements.

  • Reality:

    As always, any element to an educational device or system has to deal with several angles of perspective. The main element is that it requires dedication from the "student" in order for success to be achieved. In this case, the student is a child playing with a toy. Algobrix is a solid option for kids to play with, however, parents or teachers will need to battle the inevitable distraction of phones, tablets, and tv. This is an obvious statement, but needs to be considered when thinking about the full success of an educational toy like Algobrix.

Bottom Line

Algorbix is jumping into an emerging trend of toys that teach children the basic principles of coding through creative methods and toys. There are major potentials of success as well as realities of commitment that should be considered when thinking about backing a campaign like this.
