It's never too early to start programming! Lightbot Junior gets your little ones 'coding' within minutes!
Lightbot Junior is specifically designed for ages 4-8, and is an easier version of the popular Lightbot: featuring a gentler learning curve and not-too-complex puzzles. You can play as Boybot or Girlbot as you solve puzzles that use game mechanics that are based on Computer Science ideas; Lightbot Junior lets players gain a practical understanding of basic concepts like writing instructions, debugging problems, simple procedures and loops, just by guiding a robot with commands to light up tiles and solve levels.
Parents and teachers around the world are choosing to use Lightbot first when introducing their kids and students to programming, coding and Computer Science.
Lightbot Junior features 42 levels. There are NO in-app purchases in Lightbot Junior.
Did not engage my 6 year old. She played for only a minute or two before losing interest. You set up sequences of commands for a robot to light some squares and then play them to see if it works. This is not much in rewards for success or guidance for failure and many very similar levels. Good if your child finds the problem interesting, but many in the target age range will not.
Great introduction to problem solving!
I teach 5th grade students python and use this game as a primer to teach problem solving. The iPad game has a lot more content than the flash game and it steps up the difficulty at a much friendlier pace (for students) than the other lightbot games on the market!
An amazing "game"
A terrific app that my 4+ year old daughter and I have played with every night since we downloaded it. A total win.
