Coding for Kids
doesn't need to be hard
Our guiding principle is to help kids learn coding by scaffolding them through challenges. Here's what you can do with AgentCubes.
Make Custom AssetsCreate art with a user-friendly drawing tool. Play around with our patented 2D to 3D Inflatable Icon tool to use as assets for your worlds.
Draw WorldsDraw worlds of your own creation. Add your assets to create a 2D to 3D world.
CodingMake your world come to life by using simple drag-and-drop coding. Coding made easy with Conversational Programming, a patented support tool.

I teach middle school computer science and have been using AgentCubes for over 7 years. AgentCubes has been instrumental in getting students in my door. The platform has been perfect for exciting students by fostering creativity using game design. The simplicity, creativity, and age-appropriate coding of the AgentCubes aligns with my teaching goals as game design and coding are appealing ways to introduce CS concepts while also encouraging problem-solving abilities, critical thinking, and collaboration as they work on their game projects. I fully endorse this product in a middle school computer science classroom.

Students will often continue to pursue making their simulation “more realistic” far longer than they would continue to enhance a game project. And, as a teacher, helping students transition from the game mentality to the modeling mentality is very gratifying.

Guided inquiry and Computational thinking have the students actively take charge of their learning, leading their own way through. In traditional classrooms teachers are in charge of how the learning will take place; now, students are taking charge, building their own knowledge and building their confidence at the same time.

I can say unequivocally that AgentCubes has been the most engaging activity for my students. It’s not just about playing, or even making video games – there are now several online and downloadable platforms that provide those kinds of activities. Rather, it is the unique aspects of AgentCubes that has been so attractive to students.
