Is It Any Good?

Especially relevant for teens and adults who don't want to take a formal coding course, this app lets users self-pace and self-select when and what they want to learn. Unless an adult is assisting, this app isn't likely a great fit for most younger kids. There are no audio instructions, and kids need to read and comprehend big words and concepts such as "sequential order," "floating point numbers," and "alternative scenarios." One helpful addition to this app would be hints when a user continues to answer a question incorrectly. Still, for teens and adults, it's just challenging enough and -- for a topic some people consider dry -- it's pretty entertaining, too.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
