Product description

Bits and Bytes has been recommended by the Good Toy Guide

Bits and Bytes is an exciting, fun and easy to play game with vibrant characters that appeal to children of all ages. It engages and empowers children, encouraging them to learn through play.

The goal of Bits and Bytes is for each player to guide their character (program) to their home planet, Ram, by issuing instructions (turn right, turn left, move forward, turn around). At the same time they have to avoid Walls, Bugs and the dreaded CPU.

Sounds simple, right? But that’s the point.

Children are having fun playing a card game but at the same time they are creating computer concepts, like algorithms and the sequencing of instructions, and they are learning the invaluable skill of problem solving. And by doing so they are developing a logical mind-set, which is a fundamental requirement for coding/programming (and many other subjects).

The National Curriculum in England requires all children in primary schools (from ages 4 to 9) to learn computer coding/programming. Bits and Bytes is an invaluable STEM tool to assist parents, teachers and children to learn the fundamentals of computer coding in a fun way - without using a computer or requiring any knowledge of computers.

Bits and Bytes has been recommended in the Guide for Early Years and Primary Practitioners (by Computing at School Scotland, the University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow and University of Sterling) to teach young children the concepts of creating and following step by step instructions without needing to buy expensive computers and robots.
