Bring coding to life with Robotics for All Our products and apps teach students from kindergarten on up how to code, and with our five, free apps, students tackle a series of challenges and in-app puzzles that introduce the fundamental concepts of coding. Our unique Wonder app uses state machine programming and an original visual design to advance young students’ understanding of computer science. The Blockly app uses the most kid-friendly block based coding on the market to introduce students to programming. And Swift Playgrounds from Apple now powers Dash!
