I absolutely love apps that teach basic programming skills to children! It’s such an important computer science skill that can be easily introduced at an early age. With Codecademy (opens in new tab) your students can work through basic coding exercises thanks to the straightforward activities within this app. Kids are sure to get hooked on coding once they can started moving from one task to another. Whether you introduce this app as part of an elective or after school program or just suggest it to parents as an at home STEM extension, Codecademy (opens in new tab) is worth exploring!
