Timberdoodle's Review
Turing Tumble
Peek behind the curtain and discover how computers work with the innovative Turing Tumble. Named for the father of modern computing, Turing Tumble shows in a very tangible way what happens in a computer when a program runs. Using a 110-page manga-style storybook manual, Turing Tumble spins a tale of a young space explorer who must repair an unknown planet's central computer so she can return home. Some children will appreciate this extra layer of motivation to power through the challenges provided by the outer space storyline, but we found the puzzles themselves were compelling enough.

Just like an introductory digital logic course, kids learn about gates, switches, bits, binary counting, and so much more. Turing Tumble builds raw programming skills and teaches the fundamentals of how computers work. Moreover, it is super fun to watch, play and tinker with the outcomes. The scaffolded Turing Tumble puzzles require both creativity and the development of debugging techniques while fostering logic, critical thinking, and fundamental coding skills. The well-made Turing Tumble arrives in a sturdy box that has a molded compartment for storing each component.

    ”Turing Tumble is a logic game named after Alan Turing. According to Wikipedia he is 'widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.' I had never heard of him. Had you?”
