Algobrix looks to translate the principles of coding into a simple build-and-play interface

Thanks to Algobrix, children now have the opportunity to learn programming before they learn how to read. Using physical bricks, he or she can simply choose and build a robot, code it to do nearly anything, press play and then watch the robot in action. The kit includes motors, lights, sounds and sensors to help make the robot come to life—and it’s filled with LEGO-compatible coding blocks.

Algobrix has gained an incredible amount of momentum, beginning with its Kickstarter page. While the crowdfunding campaign has reached its goal, people can still sign up to back the project. There are tools and games out there that can help children think analytically, but this company goes a step further by teaching kids how to code. And once they master Algobrix, the transition to learning real code will be nearly seamless.
