What is Code of Aegis?

Introducing a new way to engage your students in learning to code and understanding programming concepts. Engage 6th–8th grade students with an adventure-based storyline and relatable characters while encouraging them to problem solve and think creatively.

Code of Aegis is an educational game designed to encourage and support students as they learn about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) topics. Players are immersed in the multi-tiered underground world of Aegis, following a group of friends as they try to find a way to the surface and join the three societies.

Through graphic novel artwork, animated explorations, and character dialogue, your students will uncover the story of Aegis as they focus on understanding programming concepts and robotics to become a member of the Aegis Robotics League. To be a successful member, students must learn to write a narrative, construct pseudocode, calculate circumference, design a flowchart, and more.
