Young Engineers is happy to introduce AlgoBuddy: a tangible coding education for little coders. The AlgoBuddy program offers a unique framework to familiarize young children with the fundamentals of algorithmic thinking and coding language. Using the intuitive and straightforward physical coding language of Algobrix®, children will practice programming by commanding the AlgoBuddy to perform various exciting tasks based on our daily lives.

Easy to operate,

Easy to code, Easy to love

Overview of AlgoBuddy Curriculum:

Coding literacy is one of the most important cognitive skills for the 21st century. Young Engineers strives to provide a tangible and playful coding education starting from early childhood education and building their cognitive skills to meet greater challenges as they grow older.

We have created qualitative coding frameworks that rely on children’s common knowledge, and encourages them to practice planning, decision-making and practical compromises through playing with AlgoBuddy.

With the AlgoBuddy program, every child acts as a little coding engineer, as they help AlgoBuddy move around, light up, respond to the environment, and engage with a variety of unique content that provides an exciting framework for AlgoBuddy to accomplish various tasks.
