Vidcode is aimed at teenage girls who are often left out in coding and computerprogramming technology. This tool puts together creativity, social media, and self-expression, allowing students to upload photos and videos and turn them into music videos, memes, and animations. Through these experiences, students learn that the code is what makes each action take place. On a split screen, instructions appear on one side and helpful hints are on the other side. Students have the option to link their finished projects to their social media accounts and share them with friends and family.
Whether users want to hone their quantitative skills or improve their knowledge of science and technology, the Brilliant app foriOS andAndroid devices creates inspiring, interactive learning experiences for children and adults alike. With free, curated weekly problems, they can gain timeless knowledge and apply their problem-solving skills.
