"My students can't get enough!"
- Joni Clark, Teacher, Pasadena School District

"The Foos are funny, cute and I love them!"
- Nicole, Age 7

We’ve teamed up with academics from Princeton and Harvey Mudd to turn programming into play. Kids learn to code via a series of exciting adventures. They’ll track down a sneaky doughnut thief, rescue puppies lost in space and serve up gourmet meals while mastering core computer science concepts.

The Foos: Over 40 puzzle levels and 3 distinct creative play areas for storytelling and animation.

Kids learn:
* Logic
* Sequencing
* Pattern recognition
* Control flow
* Algorithmic thinking
* Problem solving

The Foos is an introduction to programming for those with no experience and is friendly for all ages! That means anyone from 5 to 105 can play, have fun and learn real programming logic.

"The Foos is easy to learn, full of playful characters and it's easy to experiment."
- Children's Technology Review

"Most appealing to me as a parent was seeing how my children enjoyed working together on the puzzles. Even my teenager was completely engaged!"
- Parent’s Choice Awards

**********************************************************************************************************
The Foos was originally created for the 'Hour of Code', a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week [csedweek.org] and Code.org [code.org] to introduce millions of students to computer science and computer programming in a single hour.

Parents and teachers are using The Foos first when introducing their kids and students to programming and computer science. Parents can follow codeSpark on Facebook for unplugged coding activities.

There are NO in-app purchases in The Foos.
***********************************************************************************************************

Is The Foos curriculum- and standards-based?
YES! The Foos gameplay is based on curriculum from MIT and Exploring Computer Science at UCLA. Core concepts include: pattern recognition, problem solving, sequencing, spatial visualisation, algorithmic thinking, debugging, loops and conditionals. Kids also become more persistent and creative in their pursuit of solutions.

Who are The Foos?
The Foos are funny, happy creatures that inspire kids to create and collaborate through programming. Coding with The Foos requires visual, intuitive and imaginative input that builds critical computational thinking skills for future success.

The Foos app is inspired by visual programming languages such as Scratch from MIT, Alice from CMU and other ‘beginner’ programming languages like Logo, SmallTalk, and Squeak.

What is codeSpark?
codeSpark is delivering computer science education to kids in over 150 countries by turning programming into play. The company was founded when our CEO wanted to introduce his daughters to coding and couldn’t find any resources containing girl-friendly ways to learn the ABC's of computer science.
