Visual programming that enables young children to create their own interactive stories and games, despite not being able to read. In the process, children learn to solve problems, design projects, and develop sequencing skills that are foundational for later academic success.
An introductory programming language that enables young children (ages 5-7) to create their own interactive stories and games. Children snap together graphical programming blocks to make characters move, jump, dance, and sing. Children can modify characters in the paint editor, add their own voices and sounds, even insert photos of themselves -- then use the programming blocks to make their characters come to life.
codeSpark Academy is the #1 coding app for kids in grades K-5. With the lovable Foos, kids learn computational thinking by solving puzzles and express their creativity through game design. Now, they can even create their own stories. Sequencing skills learned in codeSpark Academy are the building blocks to early literacy and mathematics.
Kids will interact with a clever little robot with multiple sensors and a quirky personality. They will learn about robotics and develop fundamental coding and problem-solving skills while having fun. Robotics Jr projects range from crafting and active play to storytelling and construction.
Character Development: This program helps build the following traits
Creativity: When you learn a language, you use it to express yourself. The same is true with code. Coding empowers kids to not only consume digital media and technology but to create it. Instead of simply playing a video game or using an app, they can imagine making their own video game, website, or app.
Resilience: Learning to code, like any new discipline, is a challenge. Thus, tackling complex problems—and making mistakes along the way can be very frustrating It teaches skill of persistence in the face of such challenges & learning how to problem solve & look for solutions through research and collaboration
