codeSpark Academy is inspired by visual programming languages such as Scratch from MIT, Alice from Carnegie Mellon University and other ‘beginner’ programming languages like Logo, SmallTalk, and Squeak.

Our word-free interface allows anyone, anywhere to play. They’ll master core computer science concepts such as pattern recognition, problem solving, sequencing, algorithmic thinking, debugging, loops and conditionals.

Our creative space Foo Studio allows kids to put programming concepts to work by making video games and programming interactive stories. Creations can then be played and remixed by other coders around the globe.

Making education fun!  Baz & Taz  5 star

Fantastic 👌


Not sure.  Ashgrovemo  3 star

I got this in hopes my grandkids would like it. They may like it but so far no interest. How do I cancel?


Great learning fun, even for a 3yrs. Old  Meloya  4 star

I recently bought this app for my son who is 3. He had another free coding app, which he finished the 20 levels in just a few days. I was able to get this app for $0.99 for the first month and so far he seems to like it. The good thing is he is learning without even realizing so he doesn't stress. Overall, I think this app is good for kids of any age as it has many different levels, sections and challenges to keep them engaged. It just depends on the child, what they like and what they're able to grasp.


Great game  Su_Legend  4 star

I love that the kids are learning while enjoying themselves.

Cost  Gammy Ann  1 star

$79.99 for a year subscription and 7.99 a month. I tried to get this subscription canceled and reimbursed but there is no one to answer the phone, only email or cancel through the app

Misleading  KillCarmine  1 star

Should have stated this app was 7.99 per month before i started making an account.


Well done  tommyken900  5 star

This app is exactly what my kid needs. He dreams to be a computer programmer. I want to help him and I was searching for an app for him to practice step by step. Amazing! Here it is! It is so cool.It has a variety of learning activities that are very suitable for my kid. And the content is always added every month. That makes it perfect. My kid can not stop playing it. He looks addicted to it. Thanks a lot.

5 yo loves it  Ninja - FSPDS  4 star

Not sure we'll keep it passed the free trial, but she's loving the game.


It's a robbery  CatherinaV  1 star

For such a price I'd better find a tutor for my son who will teach more,of course, that buy this app. Graphics is rather dull and for children it's not very interesting


Too expensive  Cb1808  1 star

Too expensive. 7.99 once is acceptable. Monthly no way. Will delete if they don't change


Cancelled, still was charged  Unolver  1 star

I cancelled this subscription recently, and today I see they debited my account. I don't have money right now so that's not cool. I also was disappointed in this game, it is basically Mario brothers. I must be a genius then, because I played super Mario growing up. Never subscribing again.


Love it  Gbercor  5 star

Gets kids to think in creative games and solving problems my boys love it!


Wish I had this as a kid!  JoeProgram  5 star

What a great introduction to coding! It's fun seeing the kids make their own games and flex their coding muscles in the process.
