Turning programming into play

Turning programming into play

codeSpark's Mission is "Computer Science for All Kids, Everywhere" (codespark.com)
We are backed by Idealab & Kapor Capital.

Knowing how computers work and using them to create is crucial to success in modern society and is now as important as reading and math.

Our solution, codeSpark Academy, is a virtual world that kids bring to life by programming cute characters.  
- Kids 5+ learn computer science concepts via structured challenges & free play
- Game play is tied to a rigorous curriculum
- codeSpark Academy is gender inclusive - 53% of users are girls 
- This is a "pick up and play" game - no adults required 

A subscription version launched in Q3 2016 and includes a parent portal, robust community features and tools for making games.

Award Highlights
- Apple's "Best New Education Apps" & "App of the Day"
- Verizon App Challenge Winner ($20,000)
- LEGO Foundation global recognition for "Re-imagining Learning"
