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.

Excellent Computing Educational Tool

CodeSpark is excellent a great app for education it helps give the students practical experience at coding. Student just think they playing games but in fact they learn key skills for computing. Would highly recommend this app/programme to anyone.

Poor communication and admin.

I was getting on well with my two grandchildren for several months but then this app started blocking me. First, it said it didn’t recognise my password. I had used for some time. I pressed the button for forgotten password. They, whoever they are, sent me a link and I successfully changed the password, or so it said. It didn’t work. So I tried again, changed the password, successfully, but again it didn’t work. I cannot remember what I paid for this app but it really isn’t worth the hassle.
I think it is goodbye Foozs. There must be something more user friendly around!

Great for coding

I use this app with my school class to promote coding and using algorithms. I like the progression and how you can explore and create your own levels. Would recommend to any Primary school teachers.
