Product

Hopscotch is a programming tool for kids. Our iPad app was the first programming language designed for a touchscreen device. Kids learn organically as they create and the open-ended environment keeps the app compelling each time they return.

Kids have a strong identity and network within Hopscotch. They build projects and games by dragging and dropping code blocks, then publish their work to our community. There they can get inspiration, share their work, learn from others and collaborate.

Hopscotch’s mission is to empower anyone anywhere to create their own technologies.

Why Us?

Here at Hopscotch, we want everyone to have the chance to experience the joyful and creative parts of computer programming without getting bogged down by tricky syntax. We believe that while not everyone will become professional software engineers, some exposure to and understanding of how computer programs work is beneficial to everyone. Software increasingly powers the things we interact with daily. A base comprehension of how it is built will give us a clearer understanding of the world.

We’re a idealistic, fun and slightly weird crew, we’re always shipping product, and we’d love to hear from you.
