This free app for the iPad will help students learn how to code! It is geared to students between the ages of 8 and 12. Using drag and drop students should be able to create games and animations. 

A ongoing debate in education is around the issue of teaching programming to students. This app may provide opportunities for students to begin to explore the concept of programming easily.
