LET'S GET STARTED!
You can access our free demo and play with the Coding Board Game in your class right away! You just need to download and print the board game and the coding blocks... that's all!
Take a look at the demo to understand what you are going to do during the lesson, you don't need any prior experience with coding at all (as with all our curriculum). galactIQ is a plug and play education system. Are you ready? Click on the buttons below and start playing with your students.
HOW DO YOU PLAY?
It's easy, you have to make two teams per board game, each team will control one robot (watch the video above 👆):
This robot has to intercept 'the hacker'.
This robot has to escape from 'the chaser'.
STEP 1: Team 1 has to place 'The Chaser' on the board.
STEP 2: Team 2 has to place 'The hacker' on the board (far from 'The Chaser')
STEP 3: 'The Hacker' makes a program with the programming blocks.
STEP 4: 'The Chaser' has to read Hacker's program and create a new one to try to intercept it.
STEP 5: Both teams will repeat STEP 3 and 4 for a maximum of 3 tryouts.
+ If after 3 programs, 'The Hacker' has not been intercepted, then 'The Hacker' team wins.
+ If 'The Hacker' gets intercepted, 'The Chaser' team wins.
