Hopster Coding Safari for Kids App Review - Problem solving

As the game progresses, the tasks become more difficult to solve. Playing Hopster eventually helps children understand algorithms and then create and follow them. They also learn how programs store and manipulate data by using symbols to represent information.

This understanding helps kids develop programs with sequences and simple loops, to express ideas or address a problem. They can also decompose the steps needed to solve a problem via a precise sequence of  instructions. Debugging errors and using logical reasoning to predict the behavior of simple programs are also part of the learning process.
