Hour of Code is a non-profit organisation based in US which aims to make computer science easy and accesible. Learn to code using their engaging mini-games based off Minecraft, Frozen, and Star Wars!
Coding is the new literacy! With ScratchJr, young children (ages 5-7) can program their own interactive stories and games. In the process, they learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively on the computer. Available as a free app on iPad and Android tablets.
Scratch 2.0
With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community. Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. It is provided free of charge.
CodeCombat is a platform for students to learn computer science while playing through a real game. The courses have been playtested in a classroom setting and have been implemented in schools. Try it out today!
Created as a simple, interactive game for kids, LightBot aims to introduce programming concepts without the need for typing and coding. Available for download on phone and tablet for a small fee.
