“Learning to code has benefits far greater than being able to create apps or programs. It teaches system thinking and logic, as well as problem solving; all essential life skills in the 21st Century”

Moirade Roche, South Africa’s Institute Of Information Technology Professionals,

on the benefits of implementing coding in schools.

 

About the game

Elements of the game:
Scottie Go! is an innovative game to teach programming. It is a combination of puzzle tiles, which are used by the players to create programming commands, and an app that sets tasks and scans the proposed solutions that set Scottie and other characters in motion.

Coding Tiles

The tiles are used to write commands which will be performed by Scottie. They also have a defined goal: they allow players to acquire basic programming concepts such as loops, conditionals, variables or functions.

App

The app allows to scan the commands by capturing a photo or a video. Once the command has been scanned, Scottie will carry it out step by step, and the player can see if the task has been performed correctly.

 

How it works

  • The game has 91 quests divided into 10 modules, which provide several dozen hours of great fun and learning.
  • The set consists of a box containing 179 blocks for writing programs, a user manual, game board and license code. Mobile device is not included in the set.
  • The player selects a task in the application and writes a program by placing tiles in the right order on the game board. The program controls the main character’s, that is Scottie’s, movements.
  • Then the player scans the program using the ScottieGo! application on a computer, smartphone or tablet.​​
 
  • Once the program is scanned, Scottie will perform, on the device screen, the instructions placed on the game board.The player will see whether the task was performed correctly.
  • The game is designed for children from the age of 6. Whilst the game can be played by a single player, Scottie Go! provides great teamwork fun in groups of 2-3 persons.

  • For very young players, it is recommended that the first levels of the game are completed with the help of an adult.

Once App downloaded; No Internet / WiFi needed, as runs offline

Scottie Go! allows you to run classes in diverse environments, on different devices and in many different ways. After the installation on a device (Android or iOS mobile device, or a PC with Windows), the game does not require internet connection thus possible to run a class wherever you want, even in a place where there is no IT infrastructure.

The game can be effectively used even if there are not enough devices for each student. Even if only the teacher has a computer device, the tasks can be shown on a screen; once the students have completed their command lines, the teacher can test them by scanning them with the computer device. The teacher can switch to student account before taking a picture of the command line, so the students’ results will be stored.
