About

Introducing Glow Doodle 101

Glow Doodle 101 is an educational board-game kit for teachers to deploy STEM coding activities in classroom.

In the race to obtain rare elements like the shiny “Glowium”, students play the role of voyagers. Their mission is to control Glow Doodle Rocket to venture through space and collect precious elements ahead of other voyagers.

The game rules have been designed carefully to make learning coding concepts much more fun and easier for even young beginners (aged 6+). The game kit has also been designed with tangible play-based learning & experiential learning in mind.

Why Learning Coding Concepts Through Playing Physical Board Games?

While teaching coding concepts in traditional way and practicing on tablets are appropriate for higher grade students, coding concepts are sometimes too abstract for young beginners to learn this way.

Learning through playing physically tangible board games has the following benefits:

  • Less screen time
  • More engaging
  • More effective learning by relating abstract concepts to play experience


Play Based & Experiential Learning

Play based learning & experiential learning have been proven to let children engage more actively in learning. Experiential learning also allows students to more easily grasp basic but new concepts.

With Glow Doodle 101, Students first think in ways similar to coding concepts as they play.

After that, with a little ignition from teachers, students make sense of coding related concepts & knowledge from their play experience.

Engaging Experience

The purposes of the space adventure theme & eye catching game elements in Glow Doodle 101 is to stimulate students' curiosity and motivation to participate.

Multi-Player Game Play (2-4 Players)

The multi-player game play design is another important factor for an engaging learning experience.

The slight competitiveness between peers and the need to help one another adhere to the game rules naturally stimulate active thinking and involvement during the learning process. 

Teacher Guide

Glow Doodle 101 also includes teacher guide to help teachers to:

  • deploy 3 progressive levels of STEM coding activities in classroom
  • guide students to associate their gaming experience with particular coding concepts & knowledge associated with each of the 3 game plays

End game criteria can sometimes be adjusted for better time management in classroom.

Three Game Plays in One Single Kit

There are 3 game plays in one single kit, which progressively introduce coding concepts to students.

About Us

We are the creators of the famous Glow Doodle app that have for years been well received & used by teachers in classrooms worldwide.

Glow Doodle app had also reached top 5 best selling positions on both the UK & US App Stores, making it one of the most iconic drawing apps and our proudest achievements.

We experienced the power of coding to create & inspire others in our generation. We hope that Glow Doodle 101 can come alive to unleash our students’ potential, empowering them to create and become great creators to contribute.

Please support us and help bring this educational board game to life.

Risks and challenges

The game framework, 3D model designs (e.g. the little Rockets) & prototype have mostly been done. We are working hard on fine tuning the game rules and documentations.

Currently the number of items (e.g. different types of cards & gems) included are based on preliminary estimation. Actual number may vary depending on the finalized game rules.

MOQ (minimum order quantity) for production of game items and tooling cost is currently the main issue relating to mass production. This includes mold cost for the lovely Glow Doodle Rockets and die-cut tooling for the box and cards.
