1. The Problem
Even though there are many educational applications that teach computer science concept to children, there is still a lack of ones that young learners can easily understand complex fundamentals of computational concepts such as variables, loops, functions.
I first started to design this project with the question, “How can we assist young learners in learning the basic concept of computer science?”
Thus, I designed the Coke-bot to aid the understanding of fundamental CS concept such as loops through the interaction with the robot character by ordering tasks and analyzing the behavior.
Coke-Bot is a computing educational application that players can acquire the abstract concept in computer science by interacting with the robot.
Specifically, players can learn a computing procedure such as loops and functions through the step-by-step sequence of execution with the concept of cooking.
