The world of coding

ScottieGO! is an innovative game to teach programming. it is a combination of cardboard 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.

 

 

About the game

Improves the ability to think analytically and logically

Develops algorithmic intuition

Teaches how to solve complex problems and how to work in a group

Supports the development of competences in teaching programming at early stages of education

 

Education version of the game fives you access to:

A range of accompanying materials, including educational materials and solutions, lesson scenarios, syllabi, descriptions of implementation, etc. The downloads are available here.

To access the materials for teachers, enter the license code of your game (the code that you will find inside the game box).

A special „Teacher“ account.

High quality quest description charts that you may use to create work cards for your students or that you may display for your pupils during your classes.

Networking and supporting through ScottieGO! School Clubs on Facebook.

NOTE:

If you use ScottieGO! in an educational institution, we recommend that you mark each separate game kit (the box and the tiles) with a different colour or symbol before playing the game for the first time.

How does it work?

 

Download the app

Select the task and work out the solution

Arrange the tiles into a suitable program

Use the app to take a picture or a video of your solution

Using your own device, see if the task has been performed correctly

Game Stages

 

1. Setting the task

The app assigns the player a task. Players read the task and analyze it. Then they plan the sequence of commands that will make Scottie get to the right spot, avoid any obstacles, pick up objects, start a device and so on. The combination of all these actions will lead to the completion of the objective.

 

2. Writing commands

The player starts writing commands. Each command starts with the START tile and ends with the FINISH piece. Between those two tiles, players place the command sequence. Some of the commands require a parameter, for example, the number of steps a given character is to take. 

 

3. Checking the solution

After clicking the "Camera" button, the players will switch to scanning mode. At this point, the command is registered, detected and interpreted and, within a fraction of a second, converted into Scottie's motion. The app will also analyze the correctness of the command suggested and will check if the objectives have been accomplished. After completing the task, the players receive some feedback. If the command is correct, Scottie will carry out the task, otherwise, players will be asked to rewrite the command. If the command is too long, players will be encouraged to optimize it (i. e. to shorten it).
