The Tickle course aims to equip young curious minds with computer programming concepts as well as robotics. Students explore programming concepts using robotics on the iPad app, Tickle. Similar to Hopscotch and ScratchJr, this app allows the creation of small programs using color coded blocks, and allows interaction of characters and robots.
Students start with basic computing commands including movements, looks and sounds, then integrate their computing commands with robots such as Sphero and Dash. The course incorporate sensors and motions of robots to deepen students' understanding on essential computing concepts including input/output, sequences and lists.
