In a world filled with captivating creatures and bright colors, your youngest students will join a monkey on a mission to collect bananas and unlock a treasure chest. All the while, they will explore and learn the basics of code as they use blocks to program a monkey’s journey through the world.
Block-based coding simplifies the process of computer programming. Rather than writing out the code, students can drag and drop coding blocks that represent code. Block-based coding uses interlocking, graphical blocks so students don’t need to write. The benefit of using block-based coding is that it helps younger students learn the basics of programming without having to worry about the messy syntax that often accompanies code.
