Robot Obstacle Course

This is an online game about computer logic. Learners control a robot that navigates a maze of colored shapes, using AND, OR and NOT to decide which ones to jump over. Learners have to notice the pattern of which shapes are traps, then program the robot to avoid all shapes that are Blue AND Circles, or all shapes that are Green OR Triangles. Collect all the keys and move on to the next level with a new challenge...and watch out for those trap doors!
