      Is it for an adult?

      I’m not a programmer, or a kid but I do want to learn so I decided to start at the very beginning by trying this, for the level I’m playing 13+ the highest level it needs to have consequences when getting the directions incorrect, it also could use a try limit and then over time try refill to come back thus adding an adrenaline spike helping neurotransmitter production to lock in information. However for kids ages 4 to 11 it is probably a really great game.

      Great Coding App for Anyone

      My 2 granddaughters, ages 7 and 9, love this app. As they are developing coding skills, they insist on "playing" coding everyday; no need to encourage them, they love this app. Their skills transfer to robotics and other apps as well. This is truly a terrific program. Also, support is immediate, helpful, and encouraging. Sandra at Code Spark Academy is wonderful!

      Fun and much more

      I love using The Foos by Code Spark in my classroom of 2nd graders. I like the progression of skills my students learn. The characters, sounds and graphics are very engaging. My students are devloping a love of coding and programing, while having a lot of fun at the same time. I also like how they will keep trying on a level to get all the stars. The game and pet sections tend to be their favorite places to go. I like how the teacher dashboard can limit access too. I am excited to learn more about the future updates and changes.
