Great Apps to Supplement Your Childs Coding Journey



In our quest at CodeForce to provide comprehensive coding education, we recognize the value of diverse learning tools. While our curriculum is designed to give your child a solid foundation in programming, supplementing their learning with additional resources can be incredibly beneficial. We have chosen apps that are great for your child to use at home. We purposefully chose not to include apps and tools that we use in our classroom. Well Scratch makes it into our Little Makers curriculum from time to time.

Note: We are not endorsed by any of these apps. These are just some good ones that are out there if your child is interested in learning more!
