Do you like graphic novels or comic books? Are you interested in learning to code? If you answered, yes, then you'll love Dystopia 2153! This brand new, three-episode series teaches kids the basics of coding through a digital graphic novel. It connects 21st Century skills with the love of reading. Use code to solve puzzles that help the characters overcome obstacles and escape their dystopian world.
Coding is cool; it's everywhere. Coding appears on curricula of countries around the world. Every 21st Century learner needs to embrace emerging technologies in a globally competitive workforce. Basic coding, abstract thinking, problem-solving, and creativity help prepare kids for future jobs.
The year is 2153. In a world run by evil bots, it's dangerous to be human. Desperate to escape, Lance, Freya, and their friends are trapped in the Rathouse Orphange. Follow their quest to code their way out with the help of Chiclet, a pet robot who may hold the key to freedom. Will the kids succeed or will they be caught by BASH the evil robot commander, and Harry Mole, his mad scientist sidekick?
Dystopia 2153 is powered by Google's Blockly and features 10 different levels for each coding puzzle. If you're a beginner, don't worry, Chiclet can help you through all the levels. And if you're an expert, show off your coding skills by beating Chiclet's high score.

The artwork is exquisitely dark and beautiful. The coding lessons are well thought out and I appreciate all the opportunities to practice while levelling up.Iain Brodie Grade 7/8 Teacher, Toronto District School Board
