Turing Tumble, a fun game to learn about computers. With Turing Tumble, students can build mechanical computers powered by marbles.
It's a mesmerizing opportunity to "peek under the hood" and discover how computers work. It is hands-on, fun, easy to learn, and suitable for anyone age 8 and above. Best of all, the logic is all right there in plain sight - no coding syntax, smart phones or tablets required! Perfect for learning engineering and computer science concepts.
Each set comes with a board, marbles, 61 repositionable gears and switches, and a full-color 100+ page comic book that weaves 60 clever puzzles into an illustrated story about a space engineer stranded on a desolate planet. We find that kids ages 8-12 are able to get through the first 20-30 puzzles. Adults get addicted by puzzle 27, and their minds are blown by puzzle 35. Younger kids enjoy the first 10 and building their own computer.
The game builds real understandings of computer programming statements and sequences. It is serious fun!
Reviews are impressive and schools are buying class sets.
