Background

Gidget is a game designed to teach computer programming concepts through debugging puzzles. Gidget the robot was damaged on its way to clean up a chemical spill and save the animals, so it is the players' job to fix Gidget's problematic code to complete all the missions. As the levels become more challenging, players can combine newly introduced concepts with previously used commands to succeed solving the puzzles and progress through the game.

The research and development of Gidget is led by Michael J. Lee . Prior to its public release, over 800 online participants played through various versions of the game, and over 60 teenagers played through the game and created their own levels during four summer camps.

Research and development have been generously sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Microsoft's Software Engineering Innovation Foundation (SEIF), and Google.
