Course: exchange course equivalent to CISC 425

Description:
BlockBot is a educational learning application that leverages Augmented Reality to teach children (or even adults) how to program in an interactive and user friendly manner. Students place colored puzzle blocks of code segments together with the goal of generating robot movements. They can then easily simulate their programmed robot in their own rooms through the mixed reality AR camera, where the robot interacts with real world items captured in the camera frame. For instance, you can validate if your code correctly allows the robot to avoid falling off a desk or bump into walls in your room. This application enriches the remote learning experience as it allows students to learn robotics and coding from the comfort of their own homes without any robotics equipment!
