    This game is really good because it helps kids with their coding and many kids will have jobs in the future that don’t exist right now and I fell that coding will be part of a future job.
  • THE app to use for coding with littles

    This is THE app to use for coding with littles. This has everything I was looking for in an app. I can check on student progress and assign individualized levels. Every student that has ever used the app LOVES it. With codeSpark Academy students that can't even read can still learn to code. The app features robust activities, very user friendly interface, and gets students excited about programming.
  • If you teaching how to code could you let kids make games

    You should let them make their own games for free it will be fun or is it just I need to wait and complete the builder too? And also for kids that are 9 like me make harder levels theses are too easy so add some more free levels
