Coding can be fun, but first it has to be learned. Who better to teach kids coding than Doctor Who? You wouldn’t want to learn coding from a Dalek after all. All they know how to do is kill and wipe out whole races. Cybermen only care about deleting things. Like everything and everyone. Luckily the Doctor is available to teach your kids what they need to know about the world of coding. Through a game that they will love to play.
And now they won’t even have to fire up the computer to get their programming lessons from Doctor Who. They can now use a tablet. The BBC’s educational coding game, The Doctor and the Dalek, is now available on iPads and Android tablets (both through Amazon and soon Google Play).
You’ll get mostly the same instruction-based Boolean logic puzzles as before, but there are a few new levels and new abilities for your Dalek companion to use. The game is still free, but sadly, it’s only available in the UK right now. We can only hope that the BBC makes it available worldwide so that more kids can play it and learn something valuable while helping the Doctor.
