Kid Hackers!


Kid Hackers! @ Skillcrush.

Why should adults get to have all the fun when it comes to learning to code? Tons of new resources are available to get kids started down the path toward becoming web crafters and coders. We’ve gathered our favorites just for you.

The goal of these sites isn’t really to teach kids how to code; but, rather, to teach them critical thinking, math skills, problem solving, creativity and perseverance. These are the tools you need to be a programmer!

Most of the sites below teach programming using a visual programming environment—which simply means that kids are using graphics, rather than text, to build their programs and manipulate code. This makes programming more accessible and fun for kids (and adults!).

So this summer, grab a friend and start coding!
