Course Summary

Microsoft MakeCode is a platform that combines the magic of Making with the power of Coding as a more inclusive approach to computer science education.


Using a hands-on approach to computing education, Microsoft MakeCode brings computer science to life for all students with fun projects, immediate results, and both block and text editors for learners at different levels.


Once students have mastered drag-and-drop, block-based program construction, they can move into a full-featured JavaScript editor with code snippets, tooltips, and error detection to help them. Students can also switch back and forth between blocks and JavaScript as they make this transition.
