Light-bot is the latest app teaching kids to code

There’s a growing number of apps that teach children how to program, with Light-bot the latest hoping to get kids interested in coding.

Available for iOS and Android, it describes itself as a “programming puzzle game”, aiming to make learning the basics of coding fun rather than a dry experience.

“Light-bot lets players gain a practical understanding of basic control-flow concepts like procedures, loops, and conditionals, just by guiding a robot with commands to light up tiles and solve levels,” explains its App Store listing.

The game offers 40 levels to work through, although clearly there is potential for more to be added if it catches on, and children look to move on to the next steps in their coding lives.

Light-bot costs £1.99 for iPhone and iPad from Apple’s App Store, and £1.99 for Android from the Google Play store. If you want to check out the competition, read our Five iPad apps trying to teach programming skills to kids feature.
