Lil’Blocks is a block-based programming language based on Fred Lin’s BlocklyDuino, a dialect of Neil Fraser’s Blockly for Arduino. Blockly is the Hour of Code’s choice language to introduce children to programming. For the younger child, block programming is little more than assembling Lego bricks, yet allows a firm grasp of basic programming concepts.
Lil’Blocks translates all the block code to Arduino C, ready to compile and load into Lil’Bot from the Arduino environment. Please note that while younger children can easily learn block programming, some aspects of Lil’Bot require patient adult assistance to bring out all it has to offer.
