It seems like kids can't get away from screens these days! Instead of trying to battle screen time, give them a coding course disguised as a game. You won't regret it!
We have created BlockWorld, a 3D block-based world where everything can be controlled by code. We've taken elements from your child's favorite games like Minecraft and Roblox, mixes them with coding, and gets rid of the mindless unhealthy distractions.
Classes are conducted over video chat and the tutor appears in your child's block-based world. Your child will never interact with random strangers or be subject to all the things you're scared of as a parent!
Our course is designed for complete beginners with no experience to intermediate students. We have both exercises with right and wrong answers, as well as fun engaging projects. We work up through High School AP Computer Science.
Using visual blocks IS writing code, but instead of typing commands, students drag and drop blocks that represent what they would be typing. Most educators recommend using visual blocks until the student understands all the core concepts. Nearly every programmer can tell you about a time they wasted hours due to a single typo—we try to avoid this until they're ready.
