How I Use It
As an introduction to coding in hopes that it will be that one 'thing' that some students really goes crazy about.
My Take
This is a great tool for introducing coding to students. It is a simple interface that doesn't take a huge learning curve to get around. Some of the graphics are a little lower level for Middle School kids but the experience makes up for it.
