First timers welcome
You don't need to be a coder to teach kids to code
Play to your strengths
You’re a teacher, not a computer scientist. Model active learning by giving students a powerful tool and exploring together. The most successful teachers we've seen hand Hopscotch to their students and give them full responsibility for expertise.
Engage every learner
Every kid learns in their own way. Let them use open-ended tools to build what interests them. You’ll be thrilled to see the different ways different kids will shine.
Be a leader
Parents will love the STEM exposure and administration will love the innovation in your classroom. Show your school how easy it is to take initiative on activities that engage students and deepen learning.

Introductory Coding Curriculum
Build competency in computer science by helping your students create their own versions of popular App Store games like Crossy Road and Subway Surfers. Differentiated and aligned to the Common Core and Next Generation Science and Engineering Standards.
Transition your students from ScratchJr to more advanced coding on Hopscotch. These have block-to-block comparisons and suggestions for building off concepts explored in ScratchJr.
Create new opportunities for students to apply coding to other subject areas. Copy our GoogleDoc folder and make these examples your own.
