My Take

This product works well for the age groups I used it for. It is not too childish, where they think they are above it, but it is still fun. The learning curve is good. The first few levels take some getting used to, but after that, most students were able to get the hang of it. My kids who already loved coding went on to finish the course on their own, outside of class time.

How I Use It

I did this for Hour of Code week with my 7th and 8th graders. I do block coding with the 4-6 graders throughout the school year, so this was a nice way to introduce JavaScript to the older students.
