Robot School: Learn to Code is a programming game suitable for children aged 7 and above.
R-obbie the Robot crashed his spaceship in a far away galaxy. R-obbie needs a lot of energy to get back to his planet. Drag and drop programming instructions to help him reach the fuel he needs to return home safely.
Robot School offers a child-friendly way to learn procedures, loops and conditional instructions, while making programming fun and accessible, regardless of prior experience.
* 45 levels that teach real programming logic
* Drag and drop instructions to control R-obbie and collect the fuel
* New powers and achievements unlocked after completing each level
* A preview of your code in Swift programming language
* An easy way to share your code on Facebook
* NO in-app purchases
PSST... Robot School is a great logic game for grown ups too!
"Robot School is a great app for teaching coding to kids in a way that helps them visualize what is being taught."
"If you have been wondering how to help your kids learn how to code, Robot School is a great place to start. It’s suitable for ages 7+ who love to play LEGO and want to learn how to control their own robots. The game is an excellent playground for kids to practice their critical thinking and creative problem solving skills."

"There’s a lot of buzz about children learning coding. Robot School is one of the apps trying to help. For age seven and up, it introduces coding logic across 45 levels of accessible, robot-guided puzzling."
-- The Guardian
"Robot School, a game for kids 7 and up, looks like a fancy version of Light-Bot."
-- Boing Boing
"I admire this app a great deal as it allows users the chance to drag and drop programming commands so children can spend their time focusing on the logic of how to move this robot about without having to memorize bits of code or struggling to avoid simple typos and other mistakes that will cause impasses and frustrations. With these commands laid out in front of users organized left to right, much like reading a book, the coding experience is eased for reluctant users who can truly visualize how these codes effect the movements of R-obbie. There is no time limit to these tasks, no score to beat, and no stars to collect, which I appreciate a great deal."
"This cool educational app offers a series of challenges that kids can solve using programming elements, including functions like loops that are used in languages from BASIC to Java. The levels get progressively more complex as they introduce new variables and require more steps to reach the solution. You can even see how your code translates to Swift, an iOS and OS X programming language, based on the elements you’ve used."

"We think the app is a great addition to support students from the age of 6+, as they embark on grasping the foundations of programming."

Hi, it's R-obbie The Robot - we fixed some minor bugs! Hooray!

imac 27” display not ok
I like the program, I’m new to programming & this is neat to use as an introduction. I have an imac 27”, the hints do not show all of the text.
So much Potential!
This is such a cool tool but there are several things that I would like to see to make it more useful.
1) A way to save each program for future reference. Especially needed if an adult is working ahead to teach a young one! I take a screen shot as a work around.
2) A way to enter code directly in Swift language.
3) A debugging tool to help you figure out where you went wrong. Let us “step" through each program step so we can see each step better.
4) A way to size the programming window area.. It’s hard to see the board and objects at the same time; if we could size the programming window we could make it fit our needs better.
But this is a unique and useful tool to teach programming and I would highly recommend it. I just can’t give it five stars because there are still some things it needs.
Game resets my mac
I’m running 10.12.3 on my msc mini and my air book. This game crashes on both. Now I have to figure how to get my money back.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
