What teachers are saying...

“codeSpark Launch is filled with fun and engaging activities. It provides short and easy-to-undertand videos for each concept. I have been using codeSpark, ‘The Foos’ for a few years now and it was great to have a guide to help me explain some concepts to the students.”
—Jennifer Nishimoto, Tech Coordinator, Santa Monica Boulevard School - Los Angeles, CA
