  1. Yes, Ben Wilkoff! Love it and was messing about with it a few weeks ago but sadly it doesn’t work very well on the Chromebooks at school. I believe it is due to the problems and slowness we’ve had with the wifi but I’m still troubleshooting.

    Super stoked to see things like this cropping up so readily now, and hopeful that some will start being developed with more of a content-area focus for academic subjects as well so kids are working on literacy, math, science, social studies content while coding. I’ll be in heaven when the app allows teachers to build out their content area so kids are interacting with the unit objectives as they build and code, a la Minecraft but with ease of use for teachers and a larger age range of students.
