Hour of Code

Students first learn basic programming concepts, then make Kodable mazes, then share them with friends and family!

Students build their very own, fully functional Kodable fuzzes using real JavaScript! When they're done - they have the option to share with classmates and send it to family members.

Build a game in Kodable! Student's learn about intermediate programming concepts before building a space puzzler game using Object-Oriented Programming and JavaScript
