We are on a mission to democratize Computer Science and make it accessible to anyone - without any computers
With our games we are:
Making Computational Thinking accessible to anyone
Accelerating learning through play
Developing universally applicable STEM skills
Removing screens altogether
Introducing social interaction
We are Codomo - a Singaporean Education Technology company on a mission to deliver delightful educational experiences through technology and design. Our journey started off with us running many STEM training programs for kids.
Through that and our own learning experiences in CS, we identified the following problems:
Learning to code is scary, espeically for adults.
The logic of Computational Thinking is rudimentary, it is the syntax that makes it so difficult.
STEM education introduces more screen time for children, we don't need anymore of that.
Many parents and teachers don't understand why kids need to learn to code and aren't involved in their kids' learning journey.
Basic Computational Thinking knowledge is essential in today's world.
There wasn't anything out there which solved these prolems so we made Potato Pirates and launched it on Kickstarter so that more people could use it to spark the joy of learning coding with people around them.
We received a lot of positive feedback from parents, educators, gamers and critics. They loved the balance of excitement and educational value that the game delivers. Besides our raving backers, Potato Pirates was also awarded the international Good Design Award, Singapore Good Design Award and Core77 Education Design Award in 2018.
In 2020, we launched Potato Pirates: Enter The Spudnet to make learning cybersecurity fun.
In 2021, we laucnhed Potato Pirates: Battlechips to push the bar even higher on how much Computer Science a board game can possibly teach. Together with that we're launching a 200 page comic book called the Carbbobean Sea Chronicles which doubles up as a single player mode as well as in-depth learning guide to advanced coding concepts.
