The 'Turing Tumble' Mechanical Puzzle Teaches the Basics of Coding

Teaching kids the basics of coding can be somewhat abstract for them to grasp, so the 'Turing Tumble' mechanical puzzle is intended to provide them with a more hands-on approach to learning the processes. The puzzle works by having users insert the various portions and pieces into the board in order to create a series of spots for a ball to slide down. Flippers at the bottom of the board work to launch a ball from the top portion to start the puzzle.

The 'Turing Tumble' comes with 51 different puzzles for participants to solve in order to learn how different processes work when it comes to coding. This helps for kids to learn through doing rather than on a screen to bring the processes and sequences to life.
