The Foos

by

The Foos teaches young kids about computer science concepts by letting them program cute characters in a virtual world. The game is self-directed and the interface is 100% visual so anyone, anywhere in the world can play. Kids 5+ learn about sequencing, loops, conditionals and other powerful ideas. Our multi-platform approach makes The Foos highly accessible. Our character-driven mechanics allow us to be both gender and ethnicity inclusive. Our goal is to teach 5 million girls and 5 million under-represented minorities about computer science in the next 3 years.
