Code Karts Teaches Pre-coding Skills to Preschool Kids

Coding is an important skill for any child to learn. Not only because programming jobs are in high demand, but also because coding fosters crucial skills, such as critical thinking and problem solving. What's more, coding helps one better understand the devices and technologies they use every day.

Considering the many benefits of coding, it's no wonder that many children's apps want to teach kids how to code. Code Karts is one of these apps. Developed by Edoki Academy, it introduces pre-coding skills to children from the age of four through a series of logical puzzles.

Learn to Code on a Racetrack

Set on a racetrack, Code Karts teaches kids to code by navigating a race car around a track to get it to the finish line. To do so, they drag and drop direction bricks—colorful blocks marked with arrows—into the bracket on the top of the screen. The order of the bricks decides the car's path, and kids will need to figure out the correct sequence within three tries or it's game over.
