On the Blog

This week’s Featured Makers were Noah and Gabe. Noah is learning to code to prepare for his future career as an inventor, and Gabe likes to incorporate his pet toads into his coding games. When asked if other kids should learn to code, Gabe replied, “Heck yeah!”

We also posted The Power of Play: How Kids Benefit from Game-Based Learning. It was an interesting article to work on – did you know that GBL dates back to the 1970s with Oregon Trail?
