Build an Algobot | Arrange Code | Activate Algobot

 

 

Algobrix teaches kids how to code by guiding them through the steps of programming a robot's movements. But instead of scripts to write, they have blocks to arrange, in a tangible way that's true to real coding. 

It's the awesomeness of robots, the lasting fun of building blocks, and the problem solving of 3D puzzles. It's Algobrix.

     

 

We set out to make coding accessible and tangible for kids everywhere by building code with LEGO™ compatible building blocks. And we couldn't be prouder of the result. It's comprehensive, patented, and just the best.

Here’s why it's the best:

Plus, there are awesome Algobots:

 

 

  

 

 

 

  Instead of just teaching your kid to think like a programmer, Algobrix teaches kids to actually program a robot. Coding through bricks, not syntax.

 

 

 

 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 Just like real code.

 

 

 

 

 

The Algobots can be programmed to move around, light up, and make sounds. Its sensors can react to light, noise, touch and proximity. Your kids have the option of building any of the Algobots to turn motors on, light up LEDs and play music.

They're made from high quality LEGO™ compatible building blocks, so you can always expand your sets with your own LEGO™.

 

 

 

 

Arduino Compatible | Dimensions: 25.7mm x 80mm x 64mm
Arduino Compatible | Dimensions: 25.7mm x 80mm x 64mm

 

 

  

The Function blocks dictate what the Algobot will do. Your kid can program any of the Algobots to move around, make sounds, pause for a command (like clapping or being poked) or light up.

Below you can see them with some of their corresponding parameter blocks.

 

 

 

The parameter blocks snap onto the function blocks and dictate how the Algobot will carry out the function. So if it’s a ‘light up’ function, you can add a 2-second parameter to have the bot light up for 2 seconds and a color parameter that tells the bot with which color to light up.

 

 

Debugging & Error Lights

Algobrix has built-in error-detection and debugging. The blocks light up to indicate where in the process the bot is, with a red light to let you know if something is wrong.

Red Light Indicates an Error

 

 

 Algobrix comes with activity cards (quantity depends on your choice of kit) which serve as missions for your kids to complete. And learn coding along the way.

The cards are split up into 3 levels: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced.  

  • Basic Level Cards include missions that teach kids about functions, parameters, motors, command sequencing, motions.
  • Intermediate Level Cards include missions that teach kids about integrating RGB LEDs, loops, multi-threading and robot navigation.
  • Advanced Level Cards include missions that teach kids about integrating sensors, pointers and solving complex missions.  

  

The activity boards lead your kids to program their bots in specific ways, and challenge them to follow through.

 

The City Challenge: Find your way home across the urban jungle while following road signs  

The Space Challenge: Milky Way Tour: Navigate through Space (and then in the dark!)  

 

The Road Trip Challenge: Safely travel across continents

Our Educational Philosophy

Education + Entertainment = Edutainment 

At Algobrix we believe in enhancing children’s educational processes while developing their ability to learn. While we understand that each child possesses a unique learning style, we have found that both fun and excitement accelerates their comprehension, retention, and analysis of new information. We have meticulously developed a tangible programming language, which combines education and entertainment using an interactive teaching method. 

At Algobrix, our mission is to establish an original and unparalleled approach to educating the engineers and scientists of tomorrow by creating a well-known, engaging educational experience they can enjoy at an early age. 

 With Algobrix, children are empowered to build their confidence as they enter the challenging field of STEM, taking with them a necessary set of skills and knowledge attained through our hands-on learning method. Additionally, Algobrix is implementing two learning methods: The Spiral Learning Method and the PBL Method.

Our open source philosophy extends into our product's compatibilities, and we wanted to fit right in with some of the things your kid already has at home, that's why Algobrix is made from high quality LEGO™ compatible building blocks, so you can always expand your sets with your own LEGO™.

 

   

 

 As veterans in the fields of education and technology, our confidence stems from multiple areas of success and personal passions. As die-hard LEGO™ fans, we chose to combine our individual talents to create Algobrix and enhance the learning experience. Amir Asor, founder of Young Engineers, has 10 years of pedagogical practice of teaching STEM with building blocks and Danny Eizicovits, PhD. has a decade of research and teaching experience in the field of robotics.

Young Engineers, an education company that quickly expanded across over 40 countries worldwide, provided us with the knowledge vital to approaching children of different backgrounds and cultures when teaching them how to code or program using LEGO™ compatible bricks. Our previous experience with Young Engineer projects helps Algobrix with the necessary tools and manufacturer relationships to assemble a high-quality, and most importantly safe, product that consists of internal electronic parts and external plastic encasements. Our ability to reach children both intellectually and kinesthetically is one that has matured over time, allowing us to create a fun, learning space that leaves a lasting impression on their young minds as they begin to think like engineers and become acquainted with programming.

 

 

 

 

  Tross is a data-driven crowdfunding company

Founded in 2008 by CEO and Co-Founder Amir Asor, Young Engineers is a global network of educators teaching children STEM with LEGOs (and similar building bricks) across over 40 countries. Young Engineers teaches multidisciplinary engineering to kids from 4 to 14 years old with a focus on fun, accessible, and hands-on engineering.  

With a focus on early intervention, Young Engineers breathes passion into the dreams of young engineers and scientists. With an original and unmatched approach to engaging young people, Young Engineers enables kids to think outside the box and propel them into a future of programming.
