roboworld is an educational Python package designed for students to learn basic programming concepts, such as,
- function calls,
- loops and
Students must navigate Robo (a robot) through different two-dimensional discrete worlds. Robo represents a very simplistic machine that can only deal with elementary instructions, i.e., method calls. Therefore, students have to extend the missing functionality step by step. Through this process they learn
- to divide a problem into smaller pieces,
- to abstract,
- to recognize patterns, and
- to design and implement algorithms.
roboworld is heavily inspired by Kara.
You can install the package via
pip install roboworld
