CODING ADVENTURES FOR BEGINNERS

Grasshopper is an app by Area 120 for both Android and iOS users who want to learn to code with JavaScript. The app was created by one of Google’s experimental project teams. New users can choose to start as beginners or to skip ahead if they have some experience. Once they start, users work with blocks of JavaScript code (instead of graphical blocks like many other learn-to-code apps) to complete challenges. The app is divided into four courses: “What Is Code?” (primarily for beginners), “Fundamentals” (teaching coding concepts, such as variables, arrays, and loops), and two different sections called “Animations.” The challenges are laid out with examples and hints. Moving through the levels, students take short quizzes to reinforce their knowledge and understanding of how code works. Cost: Free
