A Self-Guided Learn to Code Platform for Kids

Our web-based software application allows kids to go at their own pace and work on topics that are interesting to them as they learn computer programming. 

Through numerous tutorials and projects, kids gain the skills necessary to build websites, video games, apps, animations, programs, and more.

A Gamified Experience

Our learn to code platform incorporates recent developments in understanding how kids learn in gamified settings.

As coders complete activities in our platform, they unlock new gear and items that can be used to customize their avatar.

Project Based Learning

We are huge believers in project based learning. This is where the real learning happens. This is the opportunity our users to use their own creativity to build real websites, video games, apps, programs, and animations as a part of their learning journey. 

Our platform includes dozens of project outlines for coders to work from. Not only will these contribute greatly to their learning experience, but these end up functioning like a portfolio that coders can take with them to display their competency in the real world.

Web Track

In the web track coders will learn HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Web Design, and SQL. It won’t be long before they’re making full blown websites and web apps with actions, databases, and great design.

Games Track

In the games track coders learn the ins and outs of video games by building projects in platforms like Scratch, App Lab, & Bitsbox. They learn concepts like motions, events, scenes, characters, story, and more. More advanced coders will learn how JavaScript can be utilized in this arena.

Scripting Track

Scripting, sometimes called “back-end” coding, is the magic part of coding. It’s what makes stuff happen. JavaScript and Python are two of the most popular scripting languages out there, and those are the two we focus on in our software.

New: Robotics curriculum includes:

Prenda’s code club software includes curriculum for some of the most popular coding robots in the world. Coding robots open a whole new fun and effective way to learn coding that kids love.

Sphero Track

Sphero makes several codable robots. These are both fun and powerful. They come equipped with sensors, colored lights, and motors. The real appeal to Spheros in our code clubs is that coders can now control something in the real world with code. If you can’t imagine, this is an amazing experience for a learner. 

Ozobot Track

Ozobot makes a robot called Evo that is very cool. Though they’re only about the size a golf ball, they pack quite a punch in terms of what you can get them to do through code. 

New: Maker curriculum includes:

Prenda’s code clubs include curriculum for some of the most popular and versatile maker hardware devices. These devices are inexpensive, but add an incredible aspect to the code club experience.

Makey Makey Track

Makey Makeys are invention kits for the 21st century. They enable you to turn anything that conducts electricity into a codable object. As a result, virtually anything is possible. We have some fun and engaging curriculum around this wonderful maker device. 

Raspberry Pi Track

Raspberry Pis are computers that fit in your hand. They run a version of Linux, and come stock with learn-to-code software. 

Our curriculum incorporates the Raspberry Pi along with a Starter Kit of accessories that will be blast to interact with. 

Did we mention you can code Minecraft with a Raspberry Pi?

  • Total coders
  • Total logins
  • Time spent on platform
  • Coding activities completed
  • Gender
  • Age
  • And more!
