School visit

SwopBots encourages pupils to get excited about coding and engineering. Designed for absolute beginners and featuring inbuilt tutorials, the SwopBots Coding Adventure game is great for those just starting out with learning to program.

SwopBots supports many curriculum goals

Learn basic coding

SwopBots uses a familiar block based coding system. Simply drag blocks together to build code characters and other objects within the game.

Fun gameplay

SwopBots combines traditional platform game elements with learning to code. Jump from platform to platform, collect crystals and avoid falling off the planet!

Use code to solve puzzles

Coding is used to solve puzzles within the game. Actions such as opening doors, getting past obstacles and controling robots all require code to be used.

Supports learning of other block based software

SwopBots uses much of the same language and structure as other block based coding software such as ‘Scratch’. SwopBots was designed to support the teaching and learning of these systems.

Follow student progress

Teachers can track student progress via the teacher console. See how far students have progressed, as well as which code blocks they are confident using. Students can take screenshots in the game to share with their teacher and describe the code they used.

SwopBots - The Story

Read about the adventures of Loop and Switch

After a terrible disaster, two children, Loop and Switch, find themselves stranded on a mining planet far from Earth. Switch is a genius computer programmer, Loop has robotic legs and can run and leap faster than any human in history. Their only companions are the SwopBots, three robots who can swap body parts to overcome any problem they might face.

Together they must confront the terrible secret lurking beneath the planet’s surface and somehow, find a way to fix their broken spaceship and return to Earth.

Suitable for children aged 8+ (188 pages)

Perfect for Classroom Reading

Great for linking computer science lessons to language and literacy classes, SwopBots: The Deleted Truth was written to encourage critical thinking and problem solving skills with a strong emphasis on providing positive role models to both boys and girls. The SwopBots story provides teachers with an excellent opportunity to explore computer science related issues in a whole new context.
