Praise from our users:
“I totes adore Hopscotch! I feel like it has helped me learn a lot. I want to be an engineer and computer techno person when I grow up.” —Genesis, age 11

"Great job!!! I'm seventy two years old, old - time amateur Apple II programmer and I used to teach my kids how to program with Logo. Now, I do the same with my grandchildren, using Hopscotch."
—P. Chatzisarantis, Grandfather
"You guys are incredible. I've never seen such a simple and powerful learning tool.” —M. Meyers, science and programming teacher
Why learn to code? Computer Science is among the highest paid college degrees and programming jobs are growing at 2x the national average. By the year 2020, there will be a projected 1.4 million computer jobs but only 400,000 CS students. Even if kids don’t grow up to be programmers, the problem solving and critical thinking skills they will obtain playing Hopscotch are necessary for every career path. Hopscotch was inspired by MIT’s Scratch.
Recommended for kids ages 8 to ∞.

I have always liked programming but...
I have always liked programming and I always like to look for game that have a challenge or maybe just fun to play. But this app left me hanging a little because some of the things you have to PAY for. I think that the app can let you explore a little more instead of telling you step by step. But this is still a great app that is fun to play
Amazing, but still needs some features
Hopscotch it great, but there are some blocks that would be useful: like when you use check once if, I think they should add a check once if this and that, and also, can they group variables by the ones that you made go to the stage automatically, and the ones they make go to the person it is for.
The app is even better now!!
Yay" there was a bug where some emoji were warped but they fixed it and now my pick your outfit game is beautiful! this is the funnest game I've ever played. And all my friends in school are obsessed with it too! my mom doesn't like when I play games but even she likes ti b cause it makes me smarter she says. 💙💚💛💜
