Hopscotch

by

Hopscotch is working to make computer programming accessible to all. Launched in April 2013, Hopscotch built the first ever programming language designed for a mobile device and is developing creative products to teach kids to code. Their mission is to empower anyone anywhere to build new technologies. Hopscotch’s primary product is an iPad application designed to teach children between the ages of 8 and 12 the fundamental concepts of computer programming. The application allows users to build projects and games by dragging and dropping command blocks into scripts, eliminating the frustrations of complicated code syntax. Unlike the many challenge based beginner programming applications, Hopscotch is an open-ended coding environment. The format allows children to experiment, take risks, and organically discover coding concepts as they create.
