Crowdsourcing Mornings: The Ifs – Coding: It Is Child’s Play

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines

The Ifs is a new educational toy that teaches kids from 3 to 10 years old the basics of computer programming. It consists of a family of four robots in which each member has different superpowers.  Children imagine amazing adventures and bring them to life by programming the robots. The Ifs strengthens learning through play in early childhood and is suitable for middle childhood to learn more complex concepts.

As parents and educators, our goal is to help children develop safe and healthy habits for technology use. With this in mind, we designed The Ifs to empower our own kids and students to become creative, engaged, lifelong learners. These skills are essential so children can invent their own future. Preschoolers from 3 years play The Ifs with their parents and experiment with light, music, color, or even emotions. From 4 to 6 years, children use their imaginations to combine basic blocks in amazing adventures with flashlights, traps, or chain reactions.

Nevertheless, if you are a coding geek, The Ifs is an Open Source project, and we would love you to contribute.

As of December 26th, this project has raised $67,000 of their $221,785 goal. This project has 29 days left to raise the $221,785 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $2, you will get project updates.  For a pledge of $110, you will get one robot and storybook.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/theifs/new-toy-robot-game-makes-learning-to-code-childs-play?
