Create Your Own Chatbot

Chatbots have become increasingly popular in the last couple of years, with some predicting its success trumping that of mobile apps. Since kids are increasingly exposed to chatbots, learning how to build chatbots can help kids develop problem-solving skills, as well as critical thinking and attend to real life issues
