Hopscotch is programming designed for everyone. Kids can use simple, intuitive building blocks to create games, animations and apps in this colorful, interactive environment.

Program your characters to move, draw, and collide with each other, and use shaking, tilting, or even shouting at the iPad to control them.

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

“This is the best app I have ever put on my kids’ iPads.”

—Bill Genereux, Digital media technology teacher and dad

“BTW, Hopscotch is so much fun! I went to Hawaii and for the whole 8 hour flight I played on it. The whole time! Thanks for being so awesome. D”—Amara, age 9

“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 ?.
