What exactly is coding?
Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, Facebook, and this website – they’re all made with code.
Click the Code.org logo to complete activities that will help you to learn the basic concepts of Computer Science with drag and drop programming.
Each activity is a game-like, self-directed tutorial starring video lectures by Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies. Learn repeat-loops, conditionals, and basic algorithms.

Scratch uses coding blocks much like Code.org but it allows you to take your coding skills slightly further.
"With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.
Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century."
