Description

Codey's Quest is a series of simple coding puzzles, where students program Codey the troll to reach a goal in each level by programming him to walk or jump over obstacles. Students with little or no programming experience can solve the initial puzzles, and they get progressively more challenging as more types of blocks are introduced. There are over 20 puzzles and a few mini-games in this set. Students who complete this set of puzzles will have a good understanding of sequencing, how to use loops for repetition, and building conditional logic to react to different circumstances.

Students learn sequencing, pattern recognition, automation, algorithmic thinking, repetition, conditional statements, and conditional loops.
