How I Use It
This would be great for students who express interest in computer science or already have experience. The entertaining activities they have make it easy for anyone of all levels of experience to grasp. The game "Toxic Jungle" is fantastic introduction for someone like me who does not know much about coding to slowly get the hang of things. To view others' creations and projects make it all the more fun and
My Take
This would serve as a powerful teaching tool to introduce anyone to the world of coding. Technology is the future and coding is much needed skill as we advance as a world in tech. The nebulous tools and projects available gives opportunity to explore all the possibilities that computer science has to offer. I can imagine this being used by children in middle-school or high school as the interface is not as friendly as some other programs out there.
