Develop Basic Critical & Logical Thinking Skills in the Game and Interactions

PockeTurtle is an innovative early childhood programming platform. It is an unplugged programming enlightenment course designed for preschool children from 3 to 8 years old. The whole course does not require electronic equipment. The children use sets of special programming pens, programming cards, and programming puzzles to learn basic coding. It is very easy for children to operate and also gives them a chance to develop basic critical and logical thinking skills behind the programming in the game and interactions.
