Junior Code Monkey Camp

CodeMonkey is a game-based learning environment where children learn to code in real programming languages. CodeMonkey puts students in charge of helping a monkey retrieve her lost bananas while journeying through a whimsical map full of procedural coding puzzles, writing real code in CoffeeScript (which is a simpler, more intuitive version of JavaScript) or Python to solve them. Designed for those with no prior programming experience, each of the hundreds of included levels is viewed from a top-down perspective, and students must write and run code snippets in one area of the screen in order to guide the monkey across each level in another. This separated style helps students instantly see the results of their work, and the game steps through each line of code as it’s played out.

  • For: Ages 6-9
  • Instructor: Engineering for Kids
