This year, I gave Jay this birthday present.

In responding to LSL’s Smart Nation propaganda.

So, we need to teach kids how to do simple programming.

This is Ozobot.

It is a small little robot that will move.

It moves according to black lines and color coding.  You want it to move fast, you do a blue black blue black blue black line.  If you want it to turn right, make sure your line has blue-red-green in there.

It is quite cute.

It comes with these route cards to demonstrate what it can do.

You can also go to the website to download games and print it out.

At the moment, the Ozobot program is as simple as this.  You can re-program it using the Blockly app.

For kids at this age, don’t jump into that yet.

Let them understand using colour you can program the robots too.

You can make them do funny things too.  All simply by using color coding.

That is why you need the magic pen.  Or you can draw on the white board too.

You can play games from the printed sheet, and fill in the color to make it work.

Jay Jay has been a very good kid for the past 1 year.  And he even not to forget to study his Chinese (daily reading and listening) on his birthday before sleep.

That is why I top up with this.  Which I save S$88 when buying it from Malaysia.  

We finally have a Millennium Falcon at home.
