Blockly Games : About

Blockly Games is a series of educational games that teach programming. It is designed for children who have not had prior experience with computer programming. By the end of these games, players are ready to use conventional text-based languages.

Puzzle is a quick introduction to Blockly's shapes and how the pieces snap together.

Maze is an introduction to loops and conditionals. It starts simply, but every level is more challenging than the last.

Bird is a deep-dive into conditionals. Control-flow is explored with increasingly complex conditions.

Turtle is a deep-dive into loops. Use nested loops to paint a picture. Then publish your art for the world to see.

Movie is an introduction to mathematical equations. Use math to animate a movie. Then publish your movie for the world to watch.

Music is an introduction to functions. Use functions to compose music. Then publish your music for the world to listen to.

Pond Tutor introduces text-based programming. Levels switch back and forth between blocks and actual JavaScript in a text editor.

Pond is an open-ended contest to program the smartest duck. Use either blocks or JavaScript.

Computer science skills help students collaborate, create and make nearly every subject seem more relevant. Blockly Games encourages the development of tomorrow's programmers. Designed to be self-paced, Blockly Games can be downloaded for offline use, ensuring accessibility for all students and technology. All code is open source, meaning it is free and customizable to meet your needs. See the developer's website for more information. Developers, teachers and parents are welcome to give feedback as we continue to grow.
