Kodable is the first step in learning to code. Students are guided through new concepts in a fun and familiar way. They are introduced to sequence, conditions, loops, and programming logic in the first 30 levels. These are concepts used in every programming language. Learning the fundamentals first makes it easy to learn more advanced platforms like Scratch later.
