Coding Farmers is the first ever board game to teach real programming concepts to children as young as seven years. This innovative and ground-breaking game exposes kids to a language used widely by both students and software engineers, the Java programming language. Made by kids, for kids, we can guarantee it’ll be fun to play and learn! Increasing difficulty levels also encourage young students to learn coding while keeping the game fresh and exciting no matter how many times it is played. Children play the game with action cards, which describe an action, like “move forward by two spaces” in two ways: regular English, and Java code. By playing the game several times, kids learn to connect their actions with written code. They become programming literate all while having a blast – rolling a dice, maneuvering around obstacles and chatting with their friends and family. The aim of the game is to show kids that computers aren’t doing “voodoo magic” when they run programs; they are simply doing simple operations, like addition and subtraction, and making choices. In this game, kids quickly learn to gain an appreciation for how powerful and simple programming can be.
