Project Introduction

Fighting Ocean Plastic Pollution is a parent-child coding board game with a marine environment theme.

In the game, children are expected to collect various kinds of beach and marine litter.

The game is split into "Trash Collection" and "Trash Sorting".

Before the action phase, litter will be randomly scattered across the map. Children need to recognize the trash and identify which trash should be placed in which bin. Next, children need to control MatataBot to collect the trash and put them in the correct bins, using either the Coding Mode or the Remote Control Mode.

Each trash bin is designed to have corresponding shapes that act as hints, which can help children to learn how to sort trash. The goal of this green initiative is to improve children's recycling skills. In the process of designing game props, including the clever modification of MatataBot, children will learn how to think of multiple solutions to problems.

Targeted Competencies

Programming Thinking / Creative Thinking / Sorting Skills / Spatial Skills / Shape Recognition
