Introduce Your Child To Coding and Video Game Design

Kodu Game Lab is an amazing aplication that I have used for many years with young students (Ages 7-10) to introduce them to coding and video game design. Kodu allows students to easily create a world, add characters, and code. Students use a visual-based language in Kodu to add coding blocks to the characters to create gameplay.

You can download Kodu onto your computer for free at

If you want to get your child started with Kodu, you will find a video below with activities that introduce students to the basics in Kodu.
