codeSpark Academy is inspired by visual programming languages such as Scratch from MIT, Alice from Carnegie Mellon University and other ‘beginner’ programming languages like Logo, SmallTalk, and Squeak.

Our word-free interface allows anyone, anywhere to play. They’ll master core computer science concepts such as pattern recognition, problem solving, sequencing, algorithmic thinking, debugging, loops and conditionals.

Our creative space Foo Studio allows kids to put programming concepts to work by making video games and programming interactive stories. Creations can then be played and remixed by other coders around the globe.

Editors' Notes

Learning to code with interactive play and puzzles.

Poor communication and admin.


I was getting on well with my two grandchildren for several months but then this app started blocking me. First, it said it didn’t recognise my password. I had used for some time. I pressed the button for forgotten password. They, whoever they are, sent me a link and I successfully changed the password, or so it said. It didn’t work. So I tried again, changed the password, successfully, but again it didn’t work. I cannot remember what I paid for this app but it really isn’t worth the hassle.
I think it is goodbye Foozs. There must be something more user friendly around!

Login and password system really flawed


The login and password system for The Foos is, without a doubt, the worst that I have seen. Moreover, there’s no logical way to reach the developers to correct this problem.
