Discussion on: Games to teach programming to a 9-year-old?

My niece is into Roblox which can be coded against. The coding element is not introductory or meant for children, but her shear interest in the game made it super appealing.

Some kids take to games meant for kids, others kind of reject them and are only interested if there is some appeal within something they already like.

Just food for thought if they don’t immediately take to a “learn to code” environment.

Such a good point, Ben!

It's so important to look at things that kids already like when trying to get them into coding. Especially, because we'd like to have every child be interested in it since understanding computers can become a superpower for their future. 💫

How old is your niece?
