Kodu: Mars Edition

Kodu is a new visual programming language made specifically for creating games. It is designed to be accessible for children and enjoyable for anyone.

The programming environment runs on a PC or on the Xbox 360 allowing for rapid design iteration using only a mouse or game controller for input. Co-developed with NASA and Microsoft, Kodu Mars Edition highlights NASA’s mission to Mars by providing new content and a platform for kids to explore new Mars terrain, rock formations and program games that use autonomous robots/Rovers. NASA/JPL in conjunction with ASU, and Kodu Science Teachers have put together a new Mars Curiosity Rover curriculum for teachers who want to use Kodu in a classroom setting.
