Fancy a game of Foobot ?
A great resource written and created by Computing Teacher Kieren Holt
What is foobot?
Who is it for?
Why do students like it?
- There is no right answer. Students can solve the puzzles in any way they like. They get to be creative.
- It gives immediate, visual feedback. By watching foobot perform the actions in sequence students can see exactly where they went wrong alongside their code (debugging to you and me!)
- The puzzles are simple to understand, yet complex to solve. Contrary to popular belief, most students enjoy a challenge!
How can it work in schools?
It is perfect for cover lessons and homework! There is no preparation required. It covers all levels of ability, from beginner to advanced. Progress through each level is recorded on the main page. Students can send their teachers a screenshot as proof of their work.
What happens next?
This is just the beginning! Foobot's developers are looking for a small team of testers and developers to create more levels and new exciting features. If you would like to be a part of it please get in touch!
