Trying to get a kid excited about computational thinking and the basics of programming is a daunting task, but coding for children becomes an entertaining part of playtime when it's incorporated into a game. Code Kingdom is one educational game that uses this to its advantage, turning the basics of learning to code into puzzles. In Code Kingdom, the bad guys are glitches that must be conquered with creative problem solving.

Since there is expected to be a huge demand for computer science jobs for the next generation of kids, a number of apps and toys like Code Kingdom are emerging to help equip young ones with skills that will be valuable for the future. Code Kingdoms also supplies free lesson plans to teachers so that a curriculum can be tied in with this coding game.
