is a web-based learning environment that introduces kids to coding in the popular Scratch graphical programming language. Kids engage with coding by creating working projects from our content-driven templates. It's project-based computer science. Every template is supported by interactive online help to guide the child every step of the way and comprehensive organizers and documentation to help them dive deeper. Customize-the-code challenges lead children to extend the templates through their own coding. Register for your free CSJumpstartr trial.
