    codeSpark is a great app to introduce young students to coding. It does a great job at showing coding concepts in an easy to follow may. codeSpark uses blocks to get students started. From codeSpark, students have the foundation to go anywhere! Great app!
  • Learning disguised as play

    By PES - 2nd Grade
    I used codeSpark with my 2nd graders last year as an end of year coding activity. The students enjoyed the app and stayed engaged in the learning activities. I plan to use codeSpark this year with my 3rd and 4th graders starting at the beginning of the year.
  • Multi-Ability Interface

    By lfeld52
    I am impressed by the visual programming aspect that reaches many in my classroom. The drag and drop features are a plus. Students will become comfortable with using computational thinking strategies.

  • Coding fun

    By Kristinrm
    I just came upon code spark, and my kids are loving it. I’m a teacher and a mom, so my kids are the summer time test subjects. :) I am looking forward to introducing the program to my class in the upcoming school year. I’m always looking out for different ways to introducing computer science to 2nd grade.
  • My Class Loved This App

    By Turtluvr
    Another teacher introduced me to CodeSpark. My 4th grade students used the app during the last 5 months of the school year. It was immediately a hit. It was highly engaging and offered both coding activities as well as free choice games. Many of my students finished all of the coding levels before the end of the year.
