06 Feb CodeCombat teaches coding by playing
The program is so helpful and interactive that you don’t even need a teacher with a background in CS to teach it. The tool gets kids coding from day one in a game-like environment. The curriculum is designed to cover more programming skills than any other curriculum. It covers all levels and even gets advanced enough to even meet the requirements for the AP CS exam and elite programs such as a Stanford undergraduate computer science course.
Many schools are implementing CodeCombat as the main computer science curriculum. The creators published a set of curriculum resources in our Resource Hub, which includes lesson plans, exercises, activities, and writing prompts to encourage reflection and retention. Also printable guides available for students to reference as they work through levels. Introduction to Computer Science course does not require student licenses. It takes 1-3 hours depending on your students’ ages and experience. A license provides a single student access to the entire curriculum beyond the trial course.
CodeCombat is recommended for students aged 9 and up.
