The new Thames & Kosmos' Code Gamer Arduino Coding Game & Workshop Science Kit introduces you to programming in a fun, step-by-step way. An Arduino-compatible gamepad connects wirelessly to your tablet. Using the gamepad and four interchangeable sensor modules, you play through a video game app on your tablet. In each level of the game, you have to learn a piece of the Arduino programming language and how to use it in order to solve 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-color experiment manual, you can create cool projects. Learn to code by playing a video game 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, Code Gamer 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. 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! 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. Use the light sensor to count how many times a drawer is opened or program an alarm system that sends you messages.
