Learn to code through gaming with Code Gamer by Thames & Kosmos. This kit introduces young people to programming in a step-by-step way. An Arduino compatible gamepad connects wirelessly to your tablet. In each level of the game, you have to learn a piece of the Arduino programming language and how to use it i order to solve the puzzles and challenges and move forward in the game. In this way you progressively learn the basics of coding. Soon you will be able to write programs on your computer using the four sensors and invent new applications. Following instructions in the 64 page, full colour experiment manual, you can create cool projects such as a light sensitive drawer alarm and a LED disco light that reacts to the movements of your fingers. 34 experiments. Age 10-16 years.

Gaming: Use sensors to control the game with this innovative gamepad
Coding: Solve puzzles and challenges in the game to learn the Arduino programming language
Making: Write your own programs and develop new applications for the sensors

Includes Arduino-compatible microcontroller (with Bluetooth), cable, rotary control wheel, circuit board, gamepad housing, two push buttons, motion sensor, temperature sensor, sound sensor, light sensor, parts for projects, CodeGamer App. Requires a tablet or smartphone running iOS or Android®.

GAMING

Connect the physical and digital worlds! Use the gamepad to play through 15 fun game levels on your tablet. Plug one of the four sensorbots into the gamepad to activate its special powers.
• The sensorbot named Kelvin melts ice blocks when you warm its temperature sensor with your hand.
• The Decibels sensorbot will assist you if you trigger its sound sensor with noise.
• Lumen reveals things hidden in dark spaces when you shine light on its light sensor.
• Newton will force its way through obstacles in your path if you shake the touch sensor.
• Level Editor: Design and create your own game levels, share them, and access other players’ levels.

CODING

Level by level, learn the basics of the Arduino programming language!
• Solve increasingly complex Arduino puzzles.
• Discover which program commands make the LEDs on your gamepad blink and the sound module activate.
• Learn how your gamepad works and how you can configure it yourself.

MAKING

Apply your new programming knowledge in cool projects!
• Use the sensors in new applications to bring your own ideas to life.
• Use the light sensor to count how many times a drawer is opened or program an alarm system that sends you messages.
• Enter the digital maker’s world and unleash your creativity.

Further Information

Thames & Kosmos (T&K) was founded in 2001 with the mission of improving informal science education outside of the classroom by publishing high-quality science kits for children of all ages. T&K places an emphasis on teaching concepts and skills through tactile processes. Their vision is to give all children access to real, physical activities and projects that teach them about how things work; parents, grandparents, and teachers are active guides in these investigations. It is their firm belief that children who connect with the world around them grow up to be inquisitive adults, creative thinkers, and engaged citizens with confidence to careers in science, technology, and engineering.
