High-Tech Hands-On Learning with a Marble-Powered Computer

Event Date & Time: Tuesday, January 16th, 2018, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET

Turing Tumble and TLC are proud to offer technology to make your Makerspace and STEM programs come alive.

Computers are full of ingenious logic and astonishing creativity. They’re everywhere, but most of us don’t understand how they work. Turing Tumble provides a way to peek under the hood of computers: the logic isn’t hidden inside a computer chip, it’s right there in front of you – no electronics at all. By placing simple plastic parts onto a mechanical computer board your students build their own marble-powered computers. This high-tech hands-on, STEM-based learning tool builds logic, critical thinking skills, and fundamental coding concepts. Kids, teens, and adults find it fun and engaging to build little computers that guide marbles down the board in mesmerizing ways, and they’re surprised to see how “smart” plastic and marbles can be. The Turing Tumble has a surprising amount of depth: users build real mechanical computers, able to do anything a regular computer could do (if the board was big enough).

Turing Tumble is unlike anything else out there. It actually lets students see and feel how computers work. It lets them code without getting bogged down by language syntax, and it doesn’t require a phone or tablet to operate. It’s perfect for your Makerspace and STEM programs.
