How I Use It
I would use this product in a classroom setting in order to teach student's problem solving skills while keeping them interacted in a fun and engaging way. By using trial and error, and skills and knowledge they know/ have learned, students are able to get the machines to perform the correct task.
My Take
Overall I definitely recommend this product for teachers to use in the classroom. It really gets the child thinking and forces them to act strategically, while still having the activity be fun and interactive. This program was very easy to set up and a student can definitely navigate around it on their own. Theres even a part on the program where students can create machines from scratch which requires them to creative and think outside the box. Overall, it's an excellent program that can definitely teach a child great problem solving skills and utilize their creativity and knowledge in a fun and interactive way.
