Users are sometimes encouraged to try to do things first without utilizing additional instruction that's offered, which may help them become more confident about their coding skills. They can also track what lessons they've completed in an online chart. The educational offerings for older kids seem to be a bit more practical -- while the pre-reader instruction can take just a minute to watch, and kids can replay earlier steps if they missed something, there seems to be a fair amount of reading involved in some lessons. Younger users may need an adult's help to navigate them as a result, but they should enjoy being able drag and drop items to make characters move. If older kids don't want to invest the time to finish an entire course, the site's Hour of Code tutorials offer lessons and exercises they can complete in 60 minutes -- including fun activities like coding animals to dance to songs by Katy Perry, Coldplay, and other artists. If your kid is interested in programming in any way, Code.org could be a great resource to unlocking their coding potential.
