A Final Stretch Goal: $105K - MiniBloq for Pi-Bot

14 likes

To our Awesome Pi-Bot Supporters,

With just about 30 hours left we have one final (very exciting) stretch goal for you. You have been asking us for another medium to ease into programming with the Pi-Bot. Here is a supplement we'd love to provide!

We are collaborating with MiniBloq to set up a Pi-Bot specific graphical programming interface (drag-and-drop blocks). Users will also be able to see the generated source code as they transition to full-time C programming. We believe that this will be further beneficial for people of all ages with no programming knowledge. Please help us reach this new goal!

It has been a pleasure sharing this journey with you! Hoping for a fantastic last 30 hours! Thank you and see you at the end!

Much love,

Lavanya and Melissa

      Thank you, Filip - we agree! We love Scratch (and Snap) and love CoderDojos too! We look forward to seeing how your older students (7th/8th grade and up) work with the Pi-Bot :)

      That is great news. I'm currently also setting up a CoderDojo (age 7-17, learning how to program, mostly using Scratch). I'd love to let those kids play around with the pi-bot!
