teaching kids to code
Every student deserves the opportunity to learn Computer Science
coding in the classroom
“Now is the time to introduce children to a discipline that they all too often never get the chance to form an opinion about.”

Teachers are not required to have any programming experience when teaching coding to kids with CodeMonkey. The games are accompanied by detailed lesson plans with both online and unplugged activities. Teachers also have exclusive access to a dashboard where they can track student progress and achievements and display different students’ solutions to the entire class for discussion.
In CodeMonkey, students learn coding in a gamified environment. In Coding adventure, they will program an adorable monkey to get all its bananas back from the greedy gorilla who stole them. As students progress in the game, they will meet different friends like our trusty turtle, who will help them in their journey as they face more complex challenges to solve. Each solution is checked and graded automatically, giving learners instant “star-score” feedback.

The 8th graders are stepping up their #coding skills this year writing #Coffeescript with @CodeMonkeySTU. It’s great to see them so engaged and excited about their progress! #futurecomputerscientists @StPatsYorktown @Sara_Shea72 @ArchNY_Schools pic.twitter.com/dck3vvZUZW— Jen Vespucci (@StPatsYktwnTech) October 16, 2018
