Abstract

This demo paper introduces young students to writing code in a touch enabled interactive maze game. Problem-based learning is given a gamified approach to learning, while simultaneously introducing the TouchDevelop platform to build basic first control flow algorithms and to learn about ordering and loops in conditional statements.
