Computational Thinking involves solving problems, designing systems, and understanding human behavior by drawing on concepts fundamental to computer science. As technology becomes increasingly more ingrained in our everyday lives, computational thinking has established itself as a necessary skill for young learners to develop. Bots & (Main)Frames is a puzzle game designed to teach the core components of computational thinking. Players must use tangible programming blocks to guide their character step by step through various obstacles, and in doing so learn to identify patterns, break down problems, develop a tool set, and even program.
