CodeSpells – game to teach kids to code

http://codespells.org/

 

“CodeSpells started as the PhD research of Sarah Esper & Stephen Foster at UC San Diego to teach kids coding. Now it’s being developed into something more than a research project. We want to make an immersive, visually-appealing video game that kids & adults will want to explore for hours.

CodeSpells revolves around the idea of crafting your own magical spells to interact with the world, solve problems, and fight off foes. To do this, we’ve created an intuitive, sleek coding interface using a drag-and-drop Javascript-based language. This interface is designed for individuals (young and old) who want to learn coding for the first time. Skilled coders will also enjoy using their coding skills in new and creative ways! Players will be able to craft their own spells to build mountains, make an impenetrable force field around your character, or even make a golem creature out of the surrounding rocks. The sky is the limit”
