Challenge Entries

Computer Science and algorithmic thinking are "new basics" that all children need to understand. Robotics is being used as a motivator of CS-STEM education. We have developed a solution that enables children without robots to control virtual robots using the same code they use to control their physical robot. This new innovation will be extreemly well recieved in education because it will give all students an opportunity to program robots (in a game like environment).
