GoldieBlox: Advntures in Coding is an innovative new coding app that is designed to use a variety of fun-filled games and digital activities to encourage children to pick up the array of skills associated with coding.

This coding game involves a fictional character, an engineered named Goldie, who needs help in the way of a series of coding commands so that she can fulfill her mission of baking and delivering cupcakes to everyone in town. The game requires players to navigate a complicated map, something that enables them to pick up important and fun coding skills. The app, which is available for both the iOS and Android platforms, is targeted towards children aged four and up.

The GoldieBlox coding app goes to show the utility of gamification in the realm of children's education.
