How can we help kids improve their focus, listening and problem solving skills using a voice enabled device like Amazon Echo.
What it does
Hungry Birds is a game that aims at teaching kids the constructs of programming and logical thinking, using a fun and engaging experience.
The objective of the game is to help the bird reach its nest. Make sure the bird stays on the path filled with worms and corn. Whenever the bird eats a worm or a corn, it can perform two movements. You can select from four types of movements, fly, sit, right and left. Your job is to select two movements, for the bird to perform, whenever it lands on a worm or a corn square. One wrong move, will take the bird off the path and will get caught by the fox. So, select your moves carefully. Good luck!
