codeSpark Academy is inspired by visual programming languages such as Scratch from MIT, Alice from Carnegie Mellon University and other ‘beginner’ programming languages like Logo, SmallTalk, and Squeak.
Our word-free interface allows anyone, anywhere to play. They’ll master core computer science concepts such as pattern recognition, problem solving, sequencing, algorithmic thinking, debugging, loops and conditionals.
Our Game Maker allows kids to put programming concepts to work by designing and coding video games. Creations can then be played and remixed by other coders around the globe.

Ratings and Reviews
As an educator of this amazing app, I wholeheartedly endorse its ability to teach students about many coding and programming concepts in a fun and engaging way. Many apps available today strive to do what codeSpark Academy has created, but fall short everytime.
Great learning tool, my kids an I both love it. Would ask though for further training after completing the puzzles.
Great teaching resource
A wonderful way to teach coding in the classroom. Comes with Lesson Plans for teachers and students love the 'game' aspect of the app. Wonderful for both coding concepts and computational thinking/problem solving skills.
